Gadget of the Week

The Magellan RoadMate 300


In car satellite navigation system. Similar in concept to the TomTom Go.



Bright 3.5 inch screen

Solid construction

Intuitive user interface

Headphone socket



No built-in battery. Needs to be powered by cigarette lighter socket or mains.

Touch screen not quite as sensitive as I would like. Sometimes fails to register taps.

No physical volume control.

Takes a long time to lock on, on initial use


List Price: £499 inc. VAT

Expect this to be lower once a number of dealers have stocks


Star Rating: 7 Stars  Check out the new TomTom Go devices before parting with any cash. Look out for a head to head review with this unit and the new TomTom Go.
