[GPS] Magellan Roadmate 700 vs. Lowrance iWay 500c

Tom's Hardware Guide has a in-depth look at two portal hard-disk-based GPS solutions. For a while last year the Magellan Roadmate 700 was my favorite, so this article was quite a good read for me - it took me two days to read it, but it was a good read nonetheless. I like the screen captures, they finally showed me what the Roadmate looks like in action. The store display models could only be run in demo mode, and unlike Garmin's, that mode doesn't show what the display is like during routing.

My favorite GPS-to-be is the Tom Tom Go 700. Yap, another "700".
