Summary: Not a difficult interface, though the screen could've been more sensitive. I live at the top of a hilly street and this GPS thinks that my house number is closer to the bottom of it. Not a problem since I know where I live but it's quite off. It often misses obvious routes. For example, in the "fastest" route, going one block further to get onto a highway is faster than going 4 miles through a 25mph zone.
Summary: I just recieved my Magellan in the mail about a month and a half ago and I have been using it in the city that i go to school in. I haven't had any trouble with it yet, works great as far as I can tell. I have noticed that sometimes the voice cuts out mid sentence when it is re-calculating. Not really a big deal to me but it might be to someone else?
Summary: The operational instructions for the Magellan are somewhat vague. The only way to learn how to operate it is to actually use it and start pushing all the buttons, the written instructions are kind of useless. When a destination is actually set the unit is quite specific and useful. Magellan is not very up to the minute on areas that are new, say within the last three years, we had to get to somewhere close by that had been around for more than five years.
Summary: I got this cause I liked that it had highway lane guidance. I like that it has several route options that I can choose from and the graphics are very good. This unit although Amazon says it has highway lane guidance which displays the overhead road sign and the actual lane to be in. It doesn't. So if you want a Magellan GPS with highway lane guidance, this won't work. Still you can't beat the price.
Summary: I like the fact that I can use it as an MP3 player wirelessly with my car stereo, thus having the MP3 function and GPS in one tidy unit. I don't like the fact that the wireless antenna is integrated into the charging unit. It makes the overall appearance look gaudy. Other than that, this is my third Magellan Unit and when I upgrade hopefully the MP3 function, anntenna, and power cord issues will be addressed.
