Summary: Pros: Good price, nice features Cons: Good features do not do you any good if it won't talk to the birds above. The nice folks at Magellan are sending me a replacement because mine does everything but get fixes from the satellites. Once I get the replacement, I'll do another review. I decided to go to them instead of returning it to Amazon.
Summary: Terrible little device. Takes forever to power on and lock on. The menu system is infuriatingly bad. And the CPU is too slow, so when you press any button, it takes up to 5 seconds before anything changes on the screen, so you're always waiting for the device to catch up to your commands. This thing might be going back, I'm that unhappy with it. Buy something else.
Summary: GPS signal is nowhere to be found "outdoors or indoors". When it finds signal most of the time is pretty weak. The map is also outdated so you will find that a lot of the roads are missing. When zooming in the only thing that you will find on the maps is green or brown color.
Summary: I recieved the first one after it would not load I cantacted Magellan after serveral tries they said it was defective. Got a second one from Amazon. I was unable to turn it on so again I sent it back. I have several stationary GPS's and they have always worked fine. They are not Magellan. I suspect Magellan has little or no quality control on the hand held devices andwould rather ship sub-standard units than fix the problem.
Summary: Bought this for my brother, who is an avid fisherman. Have to admit that I didn't do nearly enough research about the HotSpot Fishing package. Trusted the few reviews posted about the actual bundle here on Amazon, which of course are not here in the NE. Not only can you only get this for 3 lakes, but the lakes available are very limited. The closet lake to SE New York is in CT, and the closest NY lake is Lake George! 2+ hours from the area.
Summary: "Joystick" button broke after owning for less than a year. After several attempts to get Magellan to repair it even at my cost, they have still refused to repair this item. The lack of durability of an item this expensive is ridiculous. I did not even put it through heavy use. In addition the GPS accuracy was extremely poor and satellite acquisition time is abysmal. I most certainly will not ever be ordering a magellan GPS ever again.
