"magellan 4000 series not compatible with windows 7"
1 December 2009
Cons: THE 4000 SERIES CANNOT BE USED WITH WINDOWS 7 FOR SOFTWARE AND MAP UPDATES. I WAS TOLD THAT MAGELLAN DOES NOT PLAN TO UPDATE ANDY MORE SOFTWARE FOR THE 4000 SERIES UNITS. MAGELLAN SOFTWARE DOES NOT COMPARE WITH GARMIN.
there are probably better similar products out there

Summary: the price seemed reasonable enough, but some maddening glitches have rendered this item collecting dust on the shelf. will not function when is is being charged, which does not help when you are in the car looking for a route with the battery low. i would look into other models or manufacturers before settling on this one.
Unit works well, newer maps should be included at no charge!

Summary: I've been using my new Magellan 4250 for about 2 weeks. I can't complain about the functionality, I upgraded it to the 4.60 firmware and it seems to be working just fine & functions just as I would expect it to. But I'm really upset that Magellan as a company would sell this as a brand new unit and intentionally NOT include the newest updated maps with the unit!

Cons: tellss you to turn when you're coming up on the street *before* you're supposed to turn; doesn't know which streets are one-way; streets with hotels present for years don't exist on their maps of smal
