We tested this new colour touchscreen, directional mapping computer...This page provides information on how to use OSM data with Magellan GPS units.Granted, sometimes the routes (likely inherent to such devices) that it suggests are often not the best ones. And if you miss a turn, it will quickly re-route you. My Garmin e Trex 20 has lots and lots of features and ways to customize the screen. That’s a good news/bad news thing because you don’t have to fiddle with much stuff.There are a few very basic settings and then that’s it.
It has ANT , Wi Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility and is capable of communicating with your phone, home computer and even your gears.And you can also install third party navigation software (i GO, City Guide, Navitel, 7ways, etc.) on touch-screen models (Triton 1500, 2000, e Xplorist 510, 610,710) using micro SD memory card and "tritonmod" or "e Xmod" launcher. So zooming will reduce quality and you can't do any routing.The only step to do is, to embeds OSM prerendered tiles in the Magellan specific map package format.I’d need to use a competing product (particularly one made by Garmin) to pass any kind of functional judgment on the GPS unit itself. But for .00, I got my feet wet and it’s the proverbial case of “I don’t know how I got along without one.” Recently I had to go pick up something from a friend of a friend’s house who lives way out in the country.I’m commenting more on the market niche than on this particular product (which seems more than adequate out of the box). With the Road Mate, I just fed it the address and the unit gave me directions (turn left here…turn right here….etc) while showing a map of where you are at any given time.From the various reviews I’ve read of auto GPS devices, the main sticking point seem to be ease of re-routing.
