For GPS, which one is better?
7 inch Magellan Roadmate 1700 or 7" Car GPS Navigation HD Touch Screen FM 4GB New Map WinCE5.0 MTK710 ?
thank you for any help.
I got a Roadmate 1700 a few years ago but never really liked it an no longer use it. Screen is nice and big but not very bright, can be a problem in the sun. But mainly, I found the user interface kind of awkward and the style of the map display ugly. All of this was just personal preference though.
No idea what that other device is. Garmin also makes some 7" devices now that have gotten pretty good reviews:
Does it have Bluetooth? Can it play videos or photos?
User manual is here:
I really can't tell you anything much about it. I bought it because it is based on Windows CE and I wanted to install alternate software on it and use maps that I made myself (OziExplorer CE). I wasn't very impressed because the screen isn't so bright and the processor seemed very slow. This was several years ago.
