  • Summary: Technically the Magellan will do what you want, but it's heavy, expensive and has an infuriatingly clunky interface that's simply hard work to use. If we were in the market for an OS mapping GPS at this price, we'd be looking at the Garmin Oregon 600 or the soon to launch Satmap Active 12.

  • Cons: Clunky interface, small screen, lacks wider connectivity, heavy.

The cost of $449.99 may seem a bit prohibitive at first, but it is in line with other GPSs on the market.
