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 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.
Summary: This GPS system is not as intuitive to use as the Garmin, but the Garmin was infuriating in so many ways. This one has easily adjustable zoom for the maps, and the volume. The picture is very clear. The voice is totally non-offensive (unlike the Garmin). The only real flaw I've found so far is that its initial estimates of length of travel seem to be way longer than the trip actually is. But at least you get there before you expected to.
Summary: Pros: I like the hands free bluetooth with caller ID and the SD card slot to view photos and play music through the radio tuner. When driving alone no need to focus so hard on the route - it's like having a great friend by your side to call out the upcoming turns without forgetting and being distracted.
Summary: We have used a TomTom 300 since 2006. We are not sure if the Magellan 4350 is "good", or "excellent", because it has a steep learning curve, which we are far from mastering. The screen is big, but, like the TomTom, hard to see in daylight. The instructions are clear and generally easy to follow, but voice quality can be a problem--the TomTom was clearer. I think it is slower than my TomTom to find sattelites, but am not sure.
Summary: I don't see the playful features like the garmin, (voices, pointers etc), but this works great. I would like to see updates like shopping store names and places on this but I can add that. The business end of this is just what I would expect. But I don't like having an electronic device tell me the address does not exsist. Maybe updates will take care of that.
Summary: My first unit would not work with Magellan's Content Manager and Magellan's support is terrible. Fortunately I got my unit from Amazon and they replaced in next day and it worked fine with Content Manager; which is need for all updates - software, maps, POIs, etc It works great as a GPS and has enhances lane assistances. Adding POIs is not easy and you only get a name and location - no phone number or anything else.
Summary: I upgraded to the 4350 from the 4250 Magellan Maestro.....although I like it very much, I do have a few complaints. Why can't Magellan make these capable of using maps from other countries? I'm borrowing my son's NAV740 with an auxiliary map of Europe for an upcoming trip to Great Britain. My second issue is the garbled street names.
