Summary: I travel a lot. This GPS allows me to drive like a local. When I get caught in a traffic jam I take the next exit and continue down the back roads like I know my way around. The ETA feature is quite handy, (let's me know when it's time to leave, or if I can stay a bit longer). I would've rated it 5 stars if it could learn or accept changes.
Summary: nice unit. I like the user interface and the size. This is a secondary unit for me due to the fact that Magellan is no longer supporting this unit. The newest maps you can get for it is 2008-09 and they will charge you $79.99 on the Magellan website for the 3 year old maps on top of that. Not cool..... Other than that it updates fast and has the whole Bluetooth thing going on too.
Summary: This is my first GPS and have never used one before. I took it out of the box, charged it up and started using it right away without read any part of the instructions. Very simple to use and very accurate. The minute I miss a turn, it recalculates and sets me back on track. I just love it!
Summary: I bought this unit used from ebay and I will say Garmin are my favorite gps but i recently used the Magellan 3140 on a trip and it worked great. Gave proper directions, gave plenty of notice to upcoming turns etc,you can actually understand 98% of the spoken instructions, it updated quickly,the gps locked on to the signal quick, and I did need to detour when Thanksgiving traffic was all backed up on route 80 and the detour instructions worked perfect.
Summary: I've now had four of these and two of them still work. I like the ability to play music. The other attractive feature is that you can talk handsfree via bluetooth, tho the speaker could be way louder on this. The two that don't work came to me that way, and I wasn't able to save them. Overall recommended for regular GPSing. Very light, great on directions.
Summary: After having borrowed a friends Magellan Maestro I decided to purchase the device and am happy that I did. This is a little wonder and fits my needs exactly. I don't require a device that speaks in different voices, just one that speaks clearly. This one fits that need. I also am amazed at how quickly this little wonder can readjust itself.
Summary: This GPS is great! It works just like any other gps and it has Bluetooth phone capability. The only thing I can add is the updating of the map. (Some roads and new highways were not picked up yet) But when you get onto the road that has already been there for years, it will automatically re-calculate the route. Great product!
Summary: I have seen nicer onces, but for the price it is a great starter GPS!! I bought it for a Christmas gift, and they loved it. The reason I feel it is not as nice as other ones, is because it was a little difficult to figure out at first, whereas other ones I have seen are easier to figure out.
