    Magellan RoadMate 1700 GPS - Routing and Software

    (Page 3 of 4 )


    Once you enter your choice and are ready to travel, the 1700 will let you choose between four different routing options: Fastest Time, Shortest Distance, Mostly Freeways, and Least Freeways. These four options will likely suit what you need at that time, and you will even be shown the four routes together on a map for a visual comparison, as well as their estimated times of arrival.  

    The RoadMate 1700 comes pre-loaded with NAVTEQ Maps software. The software covers the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. If you want to complete the North American coverage, you can purchase maps for Mexico separately as an update. 

    The maps contain over six million POIs. The available POIs span across a wide variety of categories, such as airports, coffee shops, shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, and more to suit your leisure needs. To add a little extra visual stimulation, the GPS includes branded logos of many of your favorite POIs. For more urgent information, the 1700 also has POIs that cover gas stations, auto shops, emergency services, and ATM machines. 

    POI help goes a bit further on the RoadMate 1700 with its highway exit POI search. This search allows you to search for POIs that reside near highway exits, and comes in handy when you need gasoline badly, want to find a hotel to crash in, or are dying of hunger. When enabled, you will be shown results as well as how far they are once you get off that specific exit.
