Refurbished GPS works great!

Mark Bales, Amazon
30 August 2008
  • Summary: This item was purchased as a replacement for the same model GPS unit stolen from my daughter's car. It arrived promptly and works great! As you may or may not know, Magellan GPS units are wonderful, but their Customer Service is the worst in the industry, by far.

Great GPS, Voice Recognition Absolutely Pathetic

Bear, Amazon
15 July 2008
  • Summary: First a Caveat: This product does not come standard with Voice Recognition. That is an add-on that you purchase through the Magellan Website, receiving a code that unlocks that feature.

It's no Maestro, more like a second violinist....

Sam Katz, Amazon
7 October 2007
  • Summary: I've had the Maestro 4040 for 4 days, having bought it despite some of the negative reviews here and on various forums. So far most of my usage has been in suburban areas, both in day time and night.

Good but not Great

J.S. "J.S.", Amazon
23 July 2007
  • Summary: I bought the 4040 to use on extended trips as well as around town in unfamiliar areas. Unfortunately, I found some misleading details in the product descriptions, both here and on the Magellan site. They make mention of the 'trip planner'.

So, So.

Method2Madness, Amazon
9 July 2007
  • Summary: I bought this unit to replace an old Roadmate 360(which with the exception of outdated maps, was doing just fine) and was initially drawn by its screen size. This later proved to be the bain of its existance(to me anyway) The unit runs on Magellan's latest OS(on top of Windows ce) and includes the...

Needs work, support and maybe some re-engineering.

Michael P. Deslippe "1611KJB", Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: Well, I am not the GPS buff a lot of the reviewers seem to be, so you'll get this review from a regular guy. My only previous experience with GPS is renting a Garmin 330 with a rental car twice. My wife hated the Garmin, I liked it, but I was awe struck by the tecno-factor.

Good GPS with terrible technical support

Murtaza Cherawala, Amazon
11 June 2007
  • Summary: The Magellan 4040 is a good GPS that can be great if Magellan tweaks its software and improves its technical support. I recently bought the GPS and returned it within a week due a screen problem. The unit I received had a problem with the screen where 40% of the screen was dimmer that the rest.

Potential for excellence - maestro falls short in debut

tenbelow99, Amazon
5 June 2007
  • Summary: Purchased the Magellan Maestro 4040 based on a few online reviews and timing. The Garmin Nuvi 650 had not been released yet and the Nuvi 350 was considered excellent, but older technology - so I chose the Magellan. Pros: Large Screen, sub $400 pricing, text to speech feature.

First Impressions

Pete Carstensen, Amazon
30 May 2007
  • Summary: I have used the Hertz NeverLost system several times so was swayed to the Magellan unit because of that. The Maestro 4040 is new so should have the latest and greatest and the price was right. I got the unit three days before two business trips, first to Detroit and then on to Sacramento.
