Buying this GPS was probably one of the worst mistakes I have ever made

Christopher D. Curry, Amazon
26 April 2015
  • Summary: Buying this GPS was probably one of the worst mistakes I have ever made. I simply HATE this this. I don't even know where to start... * - The screen is tiny and very hard to use with the touch screen * - If you believe what they say about battery life then you are crazy.

worst purchase EVER!

Dan, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Should have believed the other reviews. I wanted this for hiking, laying down a track, pan and zoom to features like peaks and creeks for names and positioning on a map. Forget it. 1. screen CANNOT be seen in either sunlight or shade. 2. terrible touch screen, panning is impossible 3.

Defective product

Gavin W. Manly, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I have owned 3 previous Magellan GPS products with great satisfaction. When I received the product I was disappointed to see the pin that holds the battery cover in place had fallen out and was loose in the GPS unit. I sent the item back and within 5 days I had received a new replacement.

piece of junk

Jeff "bluejlw", Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: This unit deserves 0 stars. What junk. It worked roughly for 1 year then a firmware update came out. After updating it I had major touch screen issues. A second update came out and the screen stopped working all together. It was out of warranty after 1 year so I was out of luck.

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.

Maddening Touch Screen

Steve "Fang Four", Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: This is a DEFECTIVE product. Do NOT BUY or you will be sorry. The touch screen is maddening to use and even after several software updates the problem remains. It is a HARDWARE defect with the touch screen, not a software defect.

date stamp incorrect

Gary, Amazon
17 April 2012

Megellan couldn't resolve the situation and the unit was returned. Customer sevice was not good, they expected me to may for shipping the bad unit back.

goff-cacher, Amazon

  • 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.

Frustrating and extremely bad touchscreen / UI issues.

Thomas A. Oehser "Technologist Extraordinaire", Amazon
4 September 2011
  • Summary: I had owned a Magellan SportTrak Pro for many years, when it finally died, I went with Magellan as I was very happy with the my previous Magellan. On receiving the unit and working through its features, the most glaring and un-fixable defect was immediately apparent: The basic touch-screen does not...
