Q: What's the difference between the RoadMate 760 and the RoadMate 800? Isn't the 800 just the next model up from the 760?
A: Absolutely not! There are a number of major differences between the RoadMate 800 and RoadMate 760; which one is better for you depends on your needs. The RoadMate 760 has a larger screen and SayWhere technology; the RoadMate 800 has a true 3D map view and internal battery for the MP3 player/photo viewer. The navigation features on the two are similar, however.
Q: What's the difference between the RoadMate 800 and the RoadMate 700?
A: There are literally millions of differences, at least as far as the Points-of-Interest (POI) database is concerned. The 800 combines the basic RoadMate 760 technology and RoadMate 360 form factor and puts in a brand-new and fully-overhauled software system. Some of the new features include full 3D map mode, multiple-point routing capabilities, and an expanded POI database with millions more points and dozens more categories than the older RoadMates.
Q: What's the difference between the RoadMate 800 and the Garmin StreetPilot 2720?
A: The RoadMate 800 continues the familiar interface of the Hertz NeverLost system, and upgrades the 700 model with new maps and extra routing functions. It also adds the MP3 player and photo viewer and an internal battery. The Garmin StreetPilot 2720 has a larger screen and adds an FM traffic receiver option; otherwise, the main difference is whether you prefer Garmin or Magellan.
