Summary: My Magellan Maestro died about a month ago and I needed to go on a long trip out of state. I saw that this one was a whole lot cheaper but still the same brand so I went ahead and bought it. BIG MISTAKE. This model is much more cheaply made than my last and was completely unacceptable.
Summary: I recieved a Maestro 3100 for Christmas 2007 - after Christmas - went onto the manfacuters site to register it and the site told me that there was an update for it (HUGE file 800Meg) I down loaded it. Tried to put the update on the unit - but that failed miserably - and now the unit wouldn't boot.
Summary: Not a good gps. I travel alot and end up loosing my gps once a year or so. Thus, I have to buy the entry level units. This is the 5th gps that I've owned. Likes: Price Very thin Dislikes: Can't find many streets in the search even though when you arrive it then know the street name.
Summary: When returning a unit under warranty, they replaced it with a cheap model. Their customer service is the worst!! The 3050's are unrepairable so they replace them with cheap models. I will never use a Magellan product again. They will not return calls as promised. You'll be sorry...
Summary: DONT BUY MAGELLAN! Totally unreliable, died when I needed it during a trip in Florida. The Call support center has been outsourced to the Phillipines! I had to send the dead unit to Texas. They have had it for almost one month, cannot fix it and do not have a replacement to ship to me.
Summary: Magellan has the worst customer service in ANY industry. My unit stopped working so I called and got a return number and had to mail it to them at my own expense. It came back four weeks later with no repairs made to it. I sent it back again, at my own expense, and received it three weeks later.
Summary: This is my 3rd GPS, I've had a TomTom & Garmin also. I thought this was better (more accurate) with a few exceptions, such as it doesn't remember your own city, so you have to hand type it in every time and a few other things in setting up for a trip are not as easy as the other 2 models.
Summary: I purchased a Maestro 3100 3 weeks ago from a reseller. I had the unit for less than a day and then it would not charge. I walked thru all of the steps as mandated by your tech support representative, but we could not get the unit to work. This was on Monday July 23, 2007.
