Comments about Magellan Magellan Roadmate 1700 (Manufacturer Reconditioned):

This is a great improvement over my previous Magellan. Easy to work and the larger screen is a real plus.

As to the refurbished part- I wouldn't know it from new.

The ONLY downside of this unit is the completely rediculous mount. I still haven't got it right, but I'm working on it. When we use it, we just rest it on the console. It picks up a good signal every time.
