The Magellan RoadMate 1700 isn’t a GPS device for everyone

If you thought the 4.7-inch display on the Magellan RoadMate 1470 was freakishly large, the 1700 one ups the competition with a 7-inch display. That's ridiculous. It's almost like having two iPhones connected to one another for one gorgeous display. Of course, the features are all there, but we're mesmerized with the stunning display at a $239 price tag.

CNET writes, "The Magellan RoadMate's OneTouch menu puts the most commonly accessed destinations and searches at your fingertips at all times. The smartly designed destination confirmation screen gives you a good deal of flexibility as to how they get where they're going. Its large 7-inch touch screen gives you more real estate for maps and menus."

However, "In urban environments, the 1700 takes longer to establish satellite lock and can be inaccurate. Its 7-inch screen size may be too much for smaller dashboards and can make mounting it awkward. Its battery life is extremely short."

In conclusion, "The Magellan RoadMate 1700 isn't a GPS device for everyone, but with its huge screen and road-trip-friendly features, we think truckers and RV drivers will love it."
