Bought the update disk for $80 horrible service if you need call them.

D. Fassett, Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: I loved it until I had to get it "updated" I bought the disk and we never got it to work. Actually had my tech call Magellan to trouble shoot and they gave us nothing but grief. Use the one on your smart phone it works better and you don't have to pay for updates.

programming not current

spotlite08, Ebay
10 June 2011
  • Summary: the unit is not currently programmed and did not have the necessary wire adapters to plug into the computer. I am sure that it functions but have discovered that its ability to search for common retailers is lacking as it is straight from the box. It also does not link to my cell phone. DKW..

Worked great when it worked

Kainui's Mom, Amazon
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Bottom line: Don't pay more than $100 for this device. It's a great device when its working properly. Easy to use for a newbie. Voice guidance is great. You never have to take your eyes off the road. Screen is clear. Notes: Make sure you do your research before buying.

Nice GPS...but I think I got a lemon.

  • Summary: Very intuitive GPS system. I really enjoyed it...while I had it. After a week the voice recognition failed and then the GPS started acting goofy. I've since returned this one, but I may give this model a second shake.

listed in top 3 research

cj's digital photography, Amazon
28 April 2008
  • Summary: I did my research and this product was listed in the top 5. It mentioned some problems with locking up, but WOW is that a problem. Constantly locks up and have to reboot (seems to happen every time I don't know where I'm at!) Tested on regular routes, e.x. to/from work/home...

Review

A. Malfacini "ami", Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: I had bought a Mio C310 a year ago and thought of buying a more renowed with text-to-spech unit. So I got the Magellan Maestro 4050. On my first trip with it to Tennessee, it left me going in circles in Johnson City.

Shouldn't have been released this early...

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: June 12, 2007 I have used portable GPS units for some time, namely my old Garmin 2720, which has been a trouper over the years. The biggest problem was when we updated the software, and Garmin stopped getting satelite reception whenever it was turned off.
