Magellan Maestro 4050 Car GPS Receiver Reverbished
1 January 2010
Summary: It helps me get where I need to go in Dallas, TX I purchased it on the recommendation of a friend.It appears to work well although I did not receive all the parts of the unit from the seller. I will not be able to use the AC charder, only the car charger.
Summary: Product is easy to use, VR command is a good feature, I have had no problems so far. Don't know how good it would be compared to Garmin. For some reason Magellan Customer Support is lousy. Very hard to make telephone contact and email response is just no damn good.
Summary: I use it everyday , It is clearly better then the other brand I was using, far more user friendly and slightly more accurate. Only thing I wish i could do is change the keyboard to type writer configuration. Very good product for the money.
Summary: I've owned two pocket Garmin GPS units, one DeLorme GPS unit, one Lowrance 500C console GPS unit, a Garmin 650 road unit, and this Magellan 4050, based upon a good experience with same by a friend.

It talks to you sometimes, so, it may have the accidental effect of preventing highway hypnosis, without the synthetic Asian voice that invokes Pearl Harbor flashbacks in octogenarian VFW vets -- who...
Summary: I like this unit; it's everything I hoped for in a GPS and, while it is still early after the purchase, it feels like a quality product. The voice quality is very good and the directions clear and concise.
