Best value for the $ and unbelieveably easy to use! ... ignore the unfair reviews

28 March 2014
  • Summary: PROs: Absolutely a breeze, super simple to use and very intuitive. Rugged. Best bang for the buck hands down. Easy to customize the screen with the data you want to see (elevation, distance to destination, etc.

Very good but not perfect!

Christopher W. Burke, Amazon
23 March 2014
  • Summary: The interface is a little complicated and there are some minor quirks with the firmware that Magellan could fix but haven't as of yet, but the worst shortcoming to me is the poor visibility in bright sunlight.

Never Got To Use It

Love New Orleans, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: I gave it three stars, just because you have to give it a ranking. Sadly, I never got to use it to really know if it was any good or not. When I first opened the package, I put the batteries in and started to do the setup.

Unit says batteries are dead when they work in other devices

James Powers, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: I've tried every type of battery in this unit -- regular, heavy duty, lithium and rechargeable. In each case, the two AA batteries are 90% drained within an hour or two. I cannot recommend this unit for anyone for this reason. This is an update.

Undecided?

AzRoute66, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: I am writing this as a retired test engineer with a GPS background, so I have time to mess around with my GPS and the experience to understand what I am doing with it. I have owned a Explorist 610 and a 710.

Magellan GPSr, THOUGHT I HAD A GREAT PRODUCT

goff-cacher, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Your product is only as good as you are able to stand behind it! I am a company owner and i believe that it is my job to do anything i can to make a customer happy, Well Magellan doesn't think the same way. I bought my first Explorist 710 and had it 2 months when it got stolen out of my truck.
