Summary: Pros: 1) You get a 4.3-inch and text-to-speech capability GPS that gets you from place to place for less than $100, which is a good deal. 2) Finds satellites quickly and holds the charge well. 3) Nice user interface. 4) Our unit actually also has Canada maps, even though it doesn't claim to on the product description page. 5) We got ours (refurbished) about a year ago, and it hasn't broken on us yet.
Summary: I really like magellan GPS units - bought a tom tom but wanted to go back to magellan but after buying this one found out there are no updates for this unit and it is outdated by a couple years and when I travel a lot i need the latest updates on roads. suggest buying a model with updated files.
Summary: The 4040 has to me the perfect combo of features. The companies map update policy is horrible,if you don't contact them within the first thirty days of ownership they will not give you a map update,didn't notice that the maps were 3 years old ,tough buy and update. This ruined what would have been the perfect GPS for me,I am sending it back and going back to Garmin.
Summary: I have only had the 4040 for about a month now, and I have been using it every time I drive just to get used to it. I've also taken it along for one business trip of about 500 miles each way in that time. So far, I'm very happy with it: It always bought me right to my destination, it recalculates routes very quickly, and is easy to use. I really like the POI feature for navigating around areas that I am not familiar with.
