Frank Ponte, December 31, 1969 I've compared the iWAY500C, Magellan Roadmate 700 and the Garmin 2620. The Lowrance iWAY500C was by far the most rugged unit. The fit and finish, quality of construction is commercial / industrial; a bit hefty, but definitely not a toy like some others. The screen is large and bright. I liked the Magellan software a bit better (tone prompt at turn) but the Navteq databases were identical on noth units. I returned the Garmin as it was DOA. As it turned out, I had to send the iWAY500C back for service after two weeks. The touch screen went bezerk. The Magellan found satelites quicker than the iWAY but once locked in, both update quickly.
