Summary: It's so big and the base is so tall that it blocks vision, the display is hard to read in daylight, it tells me to go the wrong way at times, the street the names appear with dots rather on the streets themselves, and it shows me driving through fields rather than on roads at times.
Summary: I"m a regular guy with an average knowledge of computers and computer programs. I can't get any of the software to install for my Magellan. The firmware update simply will not install itself onto the unit. It *could* be my computer, but if I'm having this issue with mine, surely others are as well.
Summary: I was looking for a good GPS for my daughter to use. Although the unit has plenty of internal features, such as speaking what you type as you enter it to make it easier when behind the wheel, their maps are horribly NOT up to date.
Summary: This was a refurbished Magellan 4050 and it works "OK". For the money, it was a good buy. However, it does not have the current Magellan map software, which can be downloader for about $70, and several addresses cannot be entered.
Summary: Okay. I got this for my mother for Christmas. She is not the most technical person in the world but I am an Engineer who deals with computers every day. I wanted to check out the unit before I give it to her for Christmas. Physically it's a nice unit.
Summary: Dissatisfied. I returned my new Maestro 4050. I drove 250 thousand miles with a Roadmate 700 and loved it. After 5000 miles in 7 days with the Maestro, I returned it. The new voice is difficult to understand and poorly engineered. For example, it pronounces "S Florida Tpk" as "sssFlorida T-pak.
