I haven't but is it better than a smart phone with appropriate apps?

Well the screen is a lot easier to read! I have one and am happy with it. All GPS's make mistakes but this one allows you to report back to Rand McNally when downloading updates. You can read my review here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f451...ml#post1094952

They have a new model 7720 which can use wifi and has weather info.

I was interested in knowing if the Rand McNally or the Magellan RoadMate was the better choice to buy?

I purchased the RVND 7710 when it first came out. For over a year it was a love/hate relationship. Reluctantly, I
bought the new 7720 hoping some of the issues that I had we're fixed. I absolutely LOVE this GPS. All the things I hated are not issues with this new unit and now I am one happy camper. Highly recommended! And, even though the RVND 7710 is much cheaper don't buy it ! This is the one, hands down!!!

I have the 7710 and have used it for about a year. Overall I am happy with operation of the unit. The 7 inch screen is the best feature in my opinion. Like every GPS it is only as good as the data base it draws from. It not a very intuitive unit when putting in destinations and at times can be a bit frustrating to get it to take addresses or locations. It also has a habit of trying to send me way out of the way to get to a destination. Also mine came with free updates for life but I cannot get RM to acknowledge any of my emails or get hold of anyone on the phone that can help me. They keep transferring me from person to person with no resolution. I bought it from Camping World and that seems to be the problem with the update situation. Of course Camping World says that it is not their problem and I have to talk to RM. Frustrating to say the least. The 7720 seems to be an improved unit over the 7710.
