Is the 860 rellay the best that magellan has to offer or is there a better one in the wings?.
i have had the roadmate 700 for about 3 to 4 years and cant imagine a better guidance tool - shortcomig - it requires a 100 -120$ update and i don't see the logic or need and can't find out why i should buy it - should i just trade up and give the 700 to my wife for local trips?
I am guessing that these are based on the same technology as the 800 series? Going away from their propriatary OS(300,700, etc?)
Does this now bring the 860 feature set up to being "on par" with the 760 regarding GPS capabilities?
