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 over an area that was a field or open space. My Crossover just waits quietly until it gets near a road that is on its map and then recalculates the route.
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 doen't bother to answer service tags or return calls and doesn't seem to offer any support for the CrossoverGPS. I bought it for auto and cross country (hiking in Yellowstone, Glacer, etc.).
Summary: The Magellan Crossover is not the end-all be-all of GPS systems. As a matter of fact you can get a much better Car type GPS brand new for around the same price you can find a used or refurbished Crossover. The "crossover" functionality is nice but as mentioned by many the quality of the loaded topo maps is really bad. It's OK in a pinch but if Hiking or even Dirt Biking is your thing get a GPS designed for the job.
Summary: THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL. NEVER BUYING ANOTHER MAGELLAN AGAIN. PAID OVER 300.00 FOR THIS ONE AND COULD HAVE SPENT 200 LESS TO GIVE ME BAD DIRECTIONS. i WROTE TO MAGELLAN SEVERAL TIMES WITHOUT A RESPONSE. THIS PRODUCT SUCKS AND SO DOES THE COMPANY.
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. I called them and they they dont make that unit anymore and willnot repair and was willing to give me $100 toward a new unit they do make now. I told them to shove it. What customer service they have. if I were you I would look at another manufacturer.
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.+ portable instrument and the battery can't be replaced. However, the warranty spokesperson did suggest I could use it if it were plugged in to the cigarette lighter or the charger at home.
Summary: Absolutely LOVE it!! I bought this unit to have both the highway & "hikeway" in options...I use it for directions on the hwy & for geocaching...2 options for the price of one...Buy it if you can find it!!
Summary: This is exactly what I needed to save about $1.50 per gallon of gas on my trip on my houseboat on the mississippi, ohio, kentucky lake and the tenn-tom Bigbee Waterway all the way to Nicevile Florida.
Summary: WOW! Where do I start? First I got it used at an Ebay dealer for a ridiculously low price. The unit has a 3.5 inch touch screen, voice assist, 3 navigation choices (vehicle nav, marine and outdoor) and it works extremely well. It takes less than 30 seconds to acquire position even inside the house. When looking up addresses in car mode, it's almost psychic in it's intuitive ability to display what you are going to type next!
