Sometimes it's better than nothing, sometimes is the same as having nothing
2 July 2013
Summary: I bought this because when I went to "prepaid" I lost the use of "My Navigator" on my cell phone service. It's an "ok" device as in "better than nothing" but I'm not 100% impressed with it. We went to Wisconsin Dells and tried to use it for directions to a Water Park.
Summary: About 1 1/2 years ago I bought a Magellan Maestro 4250. I used it occasionally and was satisfied with it's performance. One day, about 2 month after the 1 year warranty expired, I turned the unit on.
Summary: It is a nice unit for the money. Not as good as my Lowrance but will do the job at 1/3d the money. Sometimes the GPS takes you all around to get where you want to go. I thought the voice function would allow you to speak the address but you still have to enter it.
Summary: The unit was easy to operate as advertised, however, after just a few weeks, it froze up and sometimes would not get any satellite signals. This was not convenient when I was far away from home! I sent it back for a replacement, so let's hope the second one is more reliable than the first.
Summary: I actually love the my Magellan 3250. This Magellan 4250 was a gift for my daughter for her birthday. We used it for a roadtrip one Saturday and found that the maps are very outdated. I first emailed Magellan about the problem and got no satisfaction.
Excerpt: The unit itself if nice, but then I noticed it comes with 2007 maps and newer 2008/2009 maps are available. I called and will be getting the new maps "free" but still have to pay $10 shipping.
Summary: This is the first GPS that I've owned. We purchased it at the end of December and have been using it fairly regularly for about a month. Since they have been around for several years now, I was disappointed with some of the quirks and other issues I've discovered with this unit: The screen is way...
Summary: Well, after reading all the reviews about Garmin, Tom Tom, and Magellan(M), I decided that the price and ease of use of the M was the deciding factor. After I received it, I set it up, turned it off, registered and called it a day. The next day, I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't come on.
