Summary: The first unit I received was defective right out of the box. Would not turn on. A brand new replacement was sent which I've been using for six months...until today. Occasionally it locks up, sometimes in the middle of a routing, and needs to be reset, losing all your customized information (Home,...
Summary: Decided to purchase this GPS after reading review at [...] and seeing Gold Box deal on Amazon. (Previous GPS is a Magellan Maestro 3100, which is almost 3 years old.) PROS: Goes without saying, but display is much nicer and redraws faster, and thus better for complex navigation on local roads.
Summary: I purchased a Maestro 4350 based on superior professional reviews and price value. My limited usage to date shows it has excellent features. Some nice features my daughter's NUVI 760 does not. That's where the good ends!! Magellan provides little or NO service.
Navigation & Speaking Street Names is questionable....
20 December 2008
Summary: I was excited to receive my new Magellan Maestro 4350 GPS. I still own a Garmin StreetPilot c340 which is several years old and the model is discontinued. Magellan did add some nice bells & whistles, but it was with the basics that I felt the Magellan lacked in performance.
Summary: Long review but here is the SUMMARY: If this is your first GPS, you may be excited with all the features it claims, but for Magellan 32xx/42xx series users, this is a 'practical' downgrade. I own a Magellan 3250 GPS for last 2 years and I was looking for an upgrade.
Summary: Difficult to use, difficult to navigate, hard to find the main menu page- would it have really been that difficult to put a tab on each page that takes you back to the main menu page? Voices used are annoying to listen to.
Summary: Before I provide feedback I would like to admit that I'm a picky consumer. I bought this GPS and it's 5 pixels on corner of the screen started wearing out in a 2 weeks of normal use. It's packed with list of features, but not good for basic navigation.
Summary: I purchased this unit approximately 9 months ago and have not been pleased with its performance. More specifically... (1) Unit is prone to locking up, requires frequent resetting. This is particularly problematic in the middle of a trip.
Summary: Had I not called customer service this morning I would have rated the equipment with 5 stars. I have had Gps nav equipment since the closet sized machine came out in 1969.Included in that array are at least 5 Magellans. So, I knew what I was getting into.
Summary: The lack of updates are a big ever-increasing problem! Points of Interests have a good chance sending you to a closed business like a restaurant. New road changes and additions are not updated! Subscribed to the traffic and found it lacked current information.
