Summary: This product was provided as a gift from a friend who has another Magellan model, and was convinced I would find it useful and helpful. I thought, this will be great to have and help when I need it. After owning the product about two weeks, the unit started locking up. No reason was apparent. Little by little, addresses would change, too, that were stored in the unit. That is not a good thing for a GPS unit.
Summary: In a nutshell, This Magellan is extremely easy to use, and moves around pretty quick on 2d mode. when switched to 3d mode it gets hard to move around the map when u need to free-scroll around. the map updates are great! sometimes the routes will be a little dumb and make you go in circles, so always check the route before driving! the interface is really simple and friendly, the on-screen keyboard is NOT QWERTY!!! so its not as fast to type in stuff..
Summary: Have had this unit for a year or so and it's usually done a good job. I guess Magellan caught a lot of flack about map updates and includes one freebie when you buy the unit. Updating the Magellan was nice and easy. (Getting the free upgrade from TomTom is a completely different, they make you feel like you're trying to steal the upgrade, but that's another story for another review.
Summary: that stupid thing do not know nothing .there are lot of places he did not even heard about them and if he knows some, he takes u around the world instead straight to the point. I wish I have my old Garmin.......
Summary: I purchased this for my husband. He has been disappointed that the maps are old. When he contacted the company, he had to pay $10 for an update, less than one month after purchase. Not great customer service in my book.
Summary: I bought this GPS for my father in law for Christmas. This item has a nice large visible screen and large icons, very easy to use and not frustrating to figure out! Excellent value for your Buck!
Summary: this gps had everything i wanted it was a gift for my sister for Christmas and it was her first gps so i needed something easy to work with and it wasn't pricey compared to other places; i have one just the same and it works wonders my husband is not too big on asking for directions and he doesn't know much about the road so we bought one a couple of months ago and it was a lifesaver so overall i would totally recommend this product.
Summary: I've used for more than 17 months Magellan Maestro 4040 which was given by my sister to use it. Sudenly, one day it stopped functioning bcs it was nearly 4 yrs old so I decided to go for another magellan product on www.amazon.com which I love shopping ONLINE. I got this product for the price I was looking & I'm very happy with it. The letters & road directions are much bigger on 4.3 inch widescreen than TOM TOM or Garmin. You can see it yourself. Seeing is believing.
