Summary: I just bought a 4350 Megllan Meastro GPS this is the best one out of 4 different ones i've bought. It has blue tooth, picture view, you can watch video's and listen to MP3's on it. The really great thing about it is that it has FM transmition to listen though your car radio speakers. This GPS is far better than any i've used, it has millions of P.O.I, AND it's very acurate with directions.
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. (2) Trip routing is ok, but you need to review them ahead of time to make sure you know the route. This is because the unit regularly instructs me to exit the highway, inappropriately.
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. Acquires signal and calculates (and recalculates) routes very fast.
Navigation & Speaking Street Names is questionable....

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. By the way, I did upgrade to the latest firmware incase you're wondering if that is the fix - it's not.
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. I downloaded the software updates and the unit hung up, said "please wait" for over 18 hours.
