Summary: I received from Amazon the Magellan Maestro 4350 yesterday. This GPS is now on it's way back to Amazon just after 24 hours... The Good: 1) Has a lot of features. 2) Easy User Interface. 3) AAA Handbook in one small device.
Summary: I received this item on time but the instructional disc that came with it was so scratched it was unreadable.the machine seemed to be stuck in a simulated mode. Not having the disc I didn't know if I was missing something or not. Needless to say I sent it back.
Summary: I may try to replace it when I return from my planned trip. Haven't used it yet. The screen has a oval circle in it that obstructs some of the area where you need to see for directions. I haven't tried to program my route information as yet, since plans are just being finalized.
Summary: Bought the Maestro 4350 because it was 'endorsed' by AAA and had wanted a GPS for my car while on road trips. Functionality was good for a couple months; SD card slot was a plus for music, although the speakers were barely loud enough to overcome average road noise.
Summary: THE BIGGEST GRIPE: UNIT FROZE WHILE I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY AND DON'T KNOW WHICH EXIT TO TAKE. A FINE TIME TO FREEZE UP WHEN I NEED IT THE MOST! UPDATING SOFTWARE DIDN'T HELP! The Pros are: a. Ding dong bell chimes alerting you to make the turn. b.
Summary: The Magellan Maestro 4350 was broken right out of the box. I tried to use it on a trip to Stroudsburg, Pa. First it would not accfept the Building number of the motel. Then I set it just for a routing to the city.
Summary: I am currently on my 3rd and last Magellan Maestro 4350.Each one I have been sent will freeze up and not work until reset.Frustrating after you have spent 2 or 3 hours route planning and then loose it all.Great unit if they could get this resolved.All of this is happening after the software /...
Good unit, good price.... well, maybe not so good after all....

Summary: I always used to scorn GPS units, preferring the time tested method of map and compass (often to the dismay of passengers when I'd hand over a map and ask them to find where we were at on it for me). When I needed a better set of directions, I'd just print something off the internet.
Summary: UPDATED 1/2/11: One of the worst products I have ever bought. I returned the first one to Magellan after this signal locking problem perpetuated for far too long. It was under the 1 year warranty so they sent me a new one. The signal locking problem was better, but not perfect.
