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.
Summary: I bought this GPS for the bluetooth and street names. If I had it to do over I would buy another brand. It would be nice to be able to change the voice but that's petty. I have bigger reasons for being unhappy with it: - a major local highway extension built almost 2 years ago not on the map.
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.
Summary: I bought the Magellan 4040 because a friend of mine loves his older Magellan GPS unit. When I was shoping for a GPS unit, I wanted one that has a 4.3" screen as the 3.5" screens are far too small, in my opinion.
Summary: This was the first GPS unit I purchased. I thought with all of the online reviews I had read that had good comments (even though there were some with unfavorable remarks about Magellan customer service) & the AAA features this unit had this was the unit for me.
Summary: The Maestro 4040 has poor mapping on the east coast. I'm not sure about other parts of the country. It gets me to the correct city, but I have to figure out how to find the correct street address on my own.
Summary: Magellan Maestro 4040 just OK We recently purchased this unit for a trip across the country for a family reunion. I have a built in GPS in my 2002 Acura CL so I had some experience with navigation units.
Summary: I bought the Maestro 4040 because I had a great experience with a previous Magellan GPS product. The Maestro 4040 has the following major defects using software version 2.04 that came with the unit: 1. Calculates routes that are not possible because the streets don't intersect. 2.
Summary: There are so many things wrong with this GPS that I'm sure I'll forget some of the cons I want to write about it. Put it this way, if you never owned a GPS or know how other gps's operate, this MIGHT be an OK choice, at least better than getting lost without any assistance.
