Magellan RoadMate 1700: 7-inch Screen, For When Size Matters

My, what a big touchscreen you have RoadMate 1700. Yet we hardly know each other. The super-size nav-unit is being listed by several retailers, including Best Buy, and though everything else looks standard (including AAA TourBook), look at that display!

It's strange that Magellan hasn't officially talked about the 1700 yet. I mean, its screen size is definitely one way to compete against GPS apps on smaller screen cell phones.

More of that standard fare I touched upon includes preloaded maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, text-to-speech and turn-by-turn voice prompts, mini USB 2.0, a MicroSD card slot, and 6 million points of interest. It's up for pre-order ($300) at: [Best Buy and Tiger GPS via GPSReview]
