Summary: I bought this thing for my father-in-law (whom I LOVE). When he opened it, he tried it immediately ... and it didn't work! OK, so I return it to Amazon, telling then it was broken. They charge me a reshelving fee! If you want this thing, don't order it from Amazon ... you might get my old broken one! Let's see if they publish this!
Summary: This unit is a total disappointment. To be useful you must obtain maps from Magellan, and the retail price for those maps is $150.00 and they must be obtained from the vendor. The box states a person can obtain maps for $9.99; however this requires a special code (which is on the box) and when I tried to obtain maps under this offer the site refused to allow me to obtain the maps. I called Magellan several times.
Summary: I really wanted to have a favorable experience with this device. My daughter has one and seemed very pleased with it. As a geocacher, I was looking forward to using it on a trip to Colorado. Startup was excellent with no problems. After three weeks, however, the display became progressively weaker to the point of becoming unreadable. I tried replacing batteries with fresh ones, but the problem persisted. Fortunately I was able to return to Amazon for a full refund.
