I purchased this as a gift for my mom. She wanted a gps with a big screen. Well i ordered this on a Wed. and it was in the store that Fri. I was nervous about how it would look since this is refurbished. It is packaged like a brand new unit!!! So pretty!! I was so happy to see that there is no way you can tell it was refurbished...it has all the extra gadgets in the box. Well except for one thing..in tiny print on the box label it says refurbished and in the box in the bottom of it in a plastic bag there is an insert that says refurbished and it gives the warranty info. Well i took the insert out of the box since in the top of the box it has instructions about what to do if you have a problem and i am going to either blacken in the "refurbished" on the box or put a Christmas sticker on top of it. Not that my mother would care but she doesn't need to know it was refurbished....at least not right away anyway. I thought i would mention this because i'm sure people are going to be buying this as a gift....anyway the packaging gets an A+. All of the gadgets are in their own little neat little baggies and the main unit is in a nice pink kind of bubble wrapping... I'll be back to let you know if the unit works after Christmas!!

What a great GPS for a motorhome!

This is, I believe, the largest screen GPS you can get, and perfect for our class A motorhome. I've got it mounted just to left of the steering wheel, the suction cup mount straight down into the cup holder there. Very easy to reach down to operate the touch-screen. The database includes most ( not all, of course ) campgrounds, which is extremely handy. just punch in the name of the town and up comes a list of campgrounds, select one and information about it comes up on the screen, including a very readable phone number, so you can grab your cell phone if you need to call and make a reservation. Then, just press the big "Go" button and your route is calculated. The computer-generated voice is load and clear. This refurb unit is one-half the price of a new unit, but you can't tell it from new. All the accessories and instructions in the box are factory-sealed, and it is working perfectly. It would be a bit too-big for an automobile, but I highly recommend for any motorhome or truck owner.

I have a very good 4" GPS, but I can't see it good enough while I am riding in the car. However, with the new 7" GPS, I have no trouble reading everything on the big screen. Wverything about the unit works the way it is supposed to. This is avery nice unit.

I've owned previous Magellans, 2200 Roadmate, 1420 Roadmate, and they all was pretty good GPS's. But the 1700 Roadmate falls real short, to top heavy and won't stay positioned on the windshield,or dash,keep falling off.Secondly, the battery life is horrible,last's about twenty minutes only,then the maps are outdated, which needs updating,which Magellan will update for you for additional $79.99.you would think buying a Refurbished unit fresh out the box that magellan would updated the maps. The only good news, was that Magellan Support Services was very good. Finally,I had to bring it back to Walmart,and turned around and brought a TomTom via 1500 from Walmart Store which turned out to be a good unit,and it costed alittle more,and as always," You pay for what you get."

It is less then basic GPS, other then the larger screen I would think again before buying this product. Will probably give to one of my children if they want it. Was not very helpful on my trip to Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. Took too many wrong and long ways to get to a point, very dissatisfied with it's location properties and values. I suggest buying a different product than this, sorry Magellan RoadMate 1700 7" Auto GPS, but your just not in the ball game at all.

I bought the Magellan GPS system because of the big screen. I had it mounted perfectly to my liking. i have had NO complaints and am enjoying it's service. The volume of the device is fine as long as the radio isn't too loud and the screen give you a great view of where your going long before you get to any turning points. i like my purchase very much.. 2 thumbs up from me..!

We live in a rural area. Not only were there not enough maps, but the Roadmate blocked us from entering pertinent letters for our address. If you didn't have one they allowed, you were blocked from entering correct information. We finally found our street by the where am I locator, but still could not enter our address. What good is it if you can't get home? We also had an adventure returning it to Walmart.

This came professionally packaged and was "like new". It has a strong gps receiver and was easy to use. The software isn't fancy but capable. Made a few errors in giving directions but pretty much on par with other gps units I've owned. There are no instructions for updating in the package. There is a sticker on the packaging that directs you to download free PC software for this unit. You first register your unit online (use only the numerical part of the serial no.) and then install the software. Attach the gps via usb and boot up the software. Have it look for updates, it will prompt a free update of firmware and map. Let it update. This operation is done 2 steps (firmare then map) with prompts to disconnect and restart the gps between the first and second step. This will take some time (2 gb of data); make sure the gps is full charged though I believe the unit is powered via the usb port when it is attached to the computer. You definitely want to be sure that the computer or gps doesn't shutdown during either installation step or you can brick the unit or could lose your free update. Of course you need broadband to do this operation. You need to download the full instructions for the unit. The paper copy is a short version. Shipping from Walmart was unbelievable. Ordered on Weds., arrived on Fri.
