Magellan RoadMate 700 Vehicle GPS with Windshield Mount

Magellan Road Mate 700

I originally looked at the idea of getting a factory GPS in the car we purchased this past spring, but I read reviews about the RoadMate 700 GPS unit that suggested that it was better, plus being portable between vehicles, so I held off.

I finally purchased the Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS before our last vacation trip, and have used it extensively in both familiar and un-familiar areas. It is extremely accurate - ok, not 100% accurate at all times (it gets my own home's location on the right side of the road, but about 100 yards off its actual location)  - but better than I expected.

The most interesting feature, I think, is the Magellan's ability to recalculate the route (to your programmed destination) if you intentionally or accidentally get off the route that it first calculates for you.  I have tried it on routes that I know well, taking my own short cuts vs. it's route, and it eventually figures out the route that you are taking.  More useful, of course, is its ability to get you back on track if you need to jump off the main highway or take a detour due to bad traffic, etc.  We used it for this several times in upper Michigan this past summer, without ever feeling that it was not keeping us on track.  The only time I made a wrong turn

was when I ignored it once because I thought differently about what it told me to do - I was wrong, but it then helped me turn around and get back on the highway in the right direction (and it doesn't nag you about making that stupid mistake like your co-pilot might!).

The windshield mount is easy and works great - I have used it in 3 different cars with no problems at all.  And my RoadMate 700 came with an indoor power adapter that allows you to pre-program a destination out of the car - you can even see its route ahead of time if you use it on a deck or porch where you can get the satellite lock.  One thing I did not have much luck with was trying to re-program the route it chose - that seemed like too much trouble - its easier to pick a different point between places and then program the final destination from that intermediate point.

The RoadMate 500 model is a few hundred dollars less,and the RoadMate 300 model even less than that, but it didn't make sense to me to go with the 500 or 300 since it does not contain the entire US as the RoadMate 700 does, and you would have to purchase additional updates for new areas, etc.   However, if you're absolutely certain that you'll only ever need it in a specific area, then by all means check out the lower priced RoadMate 500 model or RoadMate 300 model.

Book Description:
If you want to be one of the Vital Few in the stock market who make money, rather than the Trivial Many who consistently lose, this is a must read. Years ago George Muzea identified who the winners, The Vital Few, were and compared what they did at key market points to what the majority (losers), The Trivial Many investors did. Now that he is very comfortably retired, he shares his techniques with you. This book shows you in simple laymen's terms, how to monitor both groups and to use this information to always make money in the stock market. Any one of the five Muzea secrets contained in this book, could mean the difference between making a lot of money or losing it. Use all five and you'll never lose money in the stock market again.

About the Author
George Muzea is President of Muzea Insider Consulting Services whose money management clients number among the most influential names on Wall Street. Founded in 1994, Muzea Insider Consulting Services advises firms in the U.S. and Europe with more than one trillion dollars under management.
