Personal Computer World has reviewed the Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS navigation system giving it a four out of five rating. They liked the touch-screen, rechargeable battery, car mount, and cigarette power adapter. They were not so impressed with the price and that many of the “extras” were not necessary.

Other neat touches include automatic night mode when low levels of natural light are detected, and an automatic volume increase to compensate for engine noise at speeds over 70mph.

Overall this is what they had to say about the RoadMate 800:
