Summary: I bought this because the original one that I had broke. It is a good basic GPS and it gets me everywhere I need to be. It is very easy to use and is quite reliable. I would highly recommend this GPS based on the reasonable price and its simple functions. It does not have all the add-on features as the more expensive models, but if all you need is accurate directions, this is certainly the way to go.
Summary: this gps works so well, it has given my wife a whole new comfidence in driving places that she has not gone before. last week end we went from las vegas to laughlen we were going to just stay in vegas but the machines were just to tight if you know i mean and i swore we were going the wrong way but it found a faster way to get there and i have been going to both of these places for 20 years because i live near la buy one now and lock it in your trunk just in case.
2007 model Awesome super clear/sharp easy great info$50
14 February 2010
Summary: 2007 model Awesome super clear/sharp easy great info $50 used. Great TOUCH Screen easy to read and use. Such and excellent voice U can set on floor and do not even need to watch screen anyway. Very accurate. Small/compact cheap accessories on ebay window mount $7, computer update cord $3, home charger $4, and that was with shipping included. Older models are not outdated.
Summary: This unit, I have had 3 now. Why 3 you might wonder,if it is so darn good. Well the 1st one I managed to lose. 2nd was stolen out of my car in my driveway.(Do not believe it was stolen because it was a Magellan Maestro,more like because it was there. Bet the thief had no trouble selling thou .) Then I bought another complete brand new one that I still have. With 08-09 upgrade the unit has a fantastic amount of information.
Summary: Granted, it gets me where I want to be, but takes me clear across the map until I do get there. I always choose the fastest time option and it will litterally drag me along every scenic route. It took me 9 hours to make a 5 hour trip, and 5 hours to make a 3 1/2 hour trip... Plus, I have to wiggle the 12V charger or else the GPS plugged in will say the battery's dying. Not my favorite purchase..
Summary: Nice unit for the money. Get's you from Point A to B with adjustable settings. Nice full color touch screen makes it easy to navigate through the menus. Right turn left turn guidance without street names. Not particularly excited about that. Need to be careful when routing a trip. This unit has taken me well out of my way when not necessary. Settings will correct this.
Summary: this unit is great, I bought it to help woith finding houses for in home service and it really helps, i no longer need to look up a map for each address I just punch it in on the gps and the next thing I know I'm there. the input is very simple and the ability for the unit to turn itself off when the truck turns off is great. The only down side is when I'm useing it for a compas my wife can see how fast i'm driving on the screen.
Summary: Ok, I purchased the Magellan for my sister who is a truck driver for her Birthday. She Loves IT!! And hasn't had any complaints about it. It saves her time and stress. After I got my Garmin and wonder how I ever survived without it. I did my research and chose the Magellan model for her due to the features she needed most. I got a great price on a refurbished model and it was perfect for her.
