NEEDED A GPS UNIT, GOT AN MP3 PLAYER WITH THE UNIT
11 June 2013
Summary: I HAVE USED OTHER GPS PRODUCTS AND I STILL COME BACK TO THE MAGELLAN PRODUCT. I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND ALL THE EXTRA FEATURES ON THIS UNIT. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE MP3 FEATURE ON THE UNIT. FOR THE PRICE I PAID FOR THE UNIT, I WOULD CONSIDER IT A STEAL.
Listening to podcasts and the GPS shortcut key make this a must have unit.

Summary: Perhaps not the best GPS strictly for navigation but the MP3/FM feature and Shortcut feature are very useful and seamless. I do not use my GPS for navigation that often so I ask my device to double as a media player. Listening to podcasts and easy menu selection with the GPS shortcut key make this a must have unit. This is my second unit for my second car.
Summary: The Magellan Maestro 4370 may a good product for some. Mine on the other hand has turned out to be a lemon. As in my overall rating shows, The display is great, Features are exceptional, But the performance lacks a lot. Without warning the unit freezes up until it automatically does a hard re-boot,(Wiping out all saved data) Or the complete depletion of battery power and a hard re-boot.
Summary: The Magellan Maestro 4370 I purchased on eBay from seller ZKARLO (164967) has some serious problems. The unit will only operate when plugged into the car charger and no matter how long it's left on charge the battery will not accept a charge (Shows only two bars on the battery meter). The supplied USB cable, GPS to PC, did not fit the 4370. It seemed to be the wrong size at the 4370 end. It was a Mini-A and should have been a Micro-B.
Summary: Is easier to operate in my case is (BRUTO PROOF)Im not a idiot but I like it simple and trouble free, The Magellan Maestro 4370 provides easy access to favorite destinations via the new OneTouch interface. The GPS also offers a sharp display; text-to-speech directions; advanced lane guidance; integrated Bluetooth; and accurate directions.
Never again for this model! Don't purchase a 1430.

Summary: I purchased this unit to because I already had 1440 model but wanted an additional unit for another car. This unit also offered Blue Tooth, which I wanted. As it turned out the 4370 was a very unsatisfactory purchase and appeared to be a refurbished unit. Intially it would take a long time to find the satilite and once on the road it would freeze for a mininute or so and then go to the demo route and I would have to return it to the main menu screen and re-select my...
Summary: I returned the previous unit because it crashed over 15 times in 2 days. I have since bought a new (used) unit and it is 95% more reliable. Many of my previous comments apply about the bluetooth (not usable) but as a solid GPS that gets the job done this unit deserves a good rating. One thing I noticed on both used units was battery longevity. It was a short 1.5 hours. My 4 year old 2500T lasted over 8 hours. Not sure why Magellan would shorten usable battery life.
"Unit "had" promise but never recieved map updates."

Pros: The GPS unit itself is incredible. Snappy response, good screen and graphics. Has more functionality than most users may notice. Movie capability is a great bonus.
Cons: Most important thing about guidance software and Magellan doesn't have it. ... probably the worst mainstream GPS company for map updates. Never released one for the 4370. That in itself makes me regret my purchase completely.
