Summary: I have had this unit for at least 5 years and I still like it. Too bad I can't get new maps for it. But even with old maps it still works pretty well. I have heard from users of other brands of GPS that their units get messed up with giving directions when the road has changed and you are traveling...
Summary: I love this GPS but Magellan service stinks. I got mine through Consumer Electronics Warehouse (CEW) and they know what they are doing. Turns out that Magellan doesn't bother to answer service tags or return calls and doesn't seem to offer any support for the Crossover GPS.
Summary: This is junk. I spent almost $300 dollars on this and from the start it locks up and will not track for minutes at a time. I sent it in for repair and they sent me a refurbished unit that does the same thing.
Summary: My Magellan Crossover never made it to it's third year. Purchased in 2008 it was fine for the first two years but after no more that 45 hours of use the internal battery faied. According to Magellan warranty person I spoke to the battery cannot be replaced. What! A $350.
Summary: Great GPS unit. Look forward to using it for hiking. It got us suceesfully from California to Arizona, Utah and all around Dayton Ohio. We received the product within a few days of ordering and were very pleased with the prompt service.
Summary: Please save your hard earned dollars. I've owned this model for over 2 years and Magellan has provided absolutely no support. They've been saying they're going to have new topo maps since the day I bought it, and they've yet to deliver.
Summary: About a year ago, I bought a Magellan Crossover to help my wife get around town (her sense of direction is 90%+ wrong, really quite amazing). I also wanted to use it for kayaking. I though I had found a great unit from a reputable company. The facts: The Magellan GPS gets lost.
Summary: The top reason to reconsider a Magellan unit is the old maps. I bought this unit a year ago when it first came out. You would think with the latest GPS hardware you would get the latest maps and software.

Summary: Internally this unit is known as Magellan Roadmate 2500T. This is important because if you want to purchase extra SD memory, vendors will typically tell you whether their memory is supported or not.
Summary: Not a bad unit, read the other reviews, but the deal killer for anyone should be that the maps included are from August 2006, hopelessly out-of-date, and Magellan has the extremely anti-consumer policy on not providing free updates even with a recent purchase of this unit.
