Summary: Found a nice deal on a used one of these. It's ok, but just ok. The display is not as bright or clear as my previous GPS, a Rightway 200. The voice is not loud enough to be heard easily over road noise on a highway, and moreover has a muddy quality.
Summary: Still in old packing materials which kept it tight in transit. The power cord has been cut some how, and would not charge the unit. Once I got a power cord, the touch screen when typing in the city name does not respond properly.
Summary: I named it after the character in the movie Pulp fiction, because, in the movie, the character was VERY useful. Very much like this GPS unit. Simplicity is too often understated, and, overlooked. This unit is very easy to use, and will get you where you need to go.
It is way off on almost everything. Something is wrong.

Summary: I feel like something isn't jiving right with this unit. It worked a few times ok, but now it thinks it's 50-60 miles north of where it really is which may be why it gives absolutely off the wall directions that take you no where near where you want to go.
Summary: Received the GPS and the screen did not work. I notified the seller immediately. I was told to return the unit for a refund, but had to pay to ship it back. There are two issues here: The unit was damaged when I received it. I don't think I should have had to pay to send it back to get a refund.
Summary: I sent it back and got a Garmin. Now, my reason was only because the Garmin had a feature that this one lacked. As far as startup time, the Magellan BLOWS THE GARMIN AWAY! If I were to by a new unit, I'd probably get a Magellan. Too much time wasted with the Garmin.
Summary: I researched GPS' before settling on this one, as it received good reviews. It was such a mistake. The day I got it I drove 3 blocks then put in my home address. It got me to the intersection then said to turn left - my house was on the right!
Summary: Magellan rocks! I love every feature of it. Touchscreen is not so responsive after iPhone but the routing is just great! I bought second TomTom for my wife but had to return back as TomTom just sucks comparing to Magellan
