Pros: Great concept -
Cons: Maps are old. Upgrade available but so called cust service could not tell me the age of map--marine application probably designed by someone who had never been on the water. At about 18 months old-- unit just died-- won't restart-- all waypoints lost
Cons: Within a few months of buying this unit, the screen cracked. Magellan said it does not replace the lcd, even under warranty, and wanted $90 to even look at the reason for failure. This was a unit that had not been left in the sun, nor used often
Pros: The only possible pro is the crossover capability but Garmin also offers one that has a guarantee that the maps are up to date.
Cons: Maps are approximately 5 years out of date at time of unit purchase for all magellan units according to customer service and the only way to update them is to purchase an update. Navigation is also impared due to this.
Pros: Has ability to be a car, boating, and hiking GPS unit. The interface is straight forward and intuitive. It does very well as a car navigation system and the display is sharp and easy to understand.
Cons: If you are looking at using it for Geocaching, the process needed to convert waypoints from the .mgln files to the needed .upt files is a real pain. The system also seems to lockup for no reason even after a firmware upgrade.
If you can get one, go buy one. I have used my Magellan…

Summary: If you can get one, go buy one. I have used my Magellan 2500T CrossoverGPS "everyday" since I received it. I have nothing but high marks to give on this unit. I had mine mounted and up and running 5 minutes out of the box. Directions are easy to read and understand. Data input is easy from address to PIO's ie. bank. I had a chance to use this feature while looking for a BOA (Bank of America) which you must spell out.
