Pros: The RoadMate speaks street names and is very easy to use. Magellan offers accurate maps and real-time traffic updates that are free for three months.
Cons: Lousy battery life of under two hours.
Overall: These units are built for one thing, and one thing only: navigation. They're an excellent gift for dad and grandpa because even they can learn how to use it without getting lost in trivial features like MP3 players and photo slideshows (can you tell we're not big on those features yet?)
