Magellan RoadMate 760 GPS Review

Aug
29
2005

The Magellan RoadMate 760 has been reviewed by pc magazine. The 760 looks identical to the RoadMate 700 however the newer model has many advantages. They really liked the new Smart Detour feature and text-to-speech capabilities. They also remarked on the verbal announcement of full street names an categorized points of interest (POIs).

They didn’t like the lack of a 3D map view and they thought the interface was more difficult to learn than other GPS systems.

Viewing the field as a whole, we still consider the Lowrance iWAY 500C a better device, and it’s available for significantly less money. The TomTom Go [700] and TomTom Go 300 have routing capabilities similar to the 760’s, as well as simpler and extremely intuitive interfaces. You must, however, rely on SD cards with these models (remember, the 760 has a hard drive), which means you may have to load additional map data for new locations.
