Summary: I purchased the 4370 from Circuit City on sale. The unit consistently overheats and shut downs during long trips. I would suspect from opening unit up that adequate heat dissipation was not designed into the unit. DO NOT BUY.
Summary: I was given this GPS as a gift by my husband. He bought a refurbished model here on Amazon. I was skeptical about using a GPS but was a believer after a trip to New York City. Unfortunately, several months later the unit just locked up while I was driving. Luckily I had paper directions as back up.
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.
Summary: I was happy with the physical product, but it is worthless now because the most current map is from 2009 and Magellan is not providing anything newer. I won't buy another Magellan product. Please note that "lifetime maps" means Magellan's idea of a 3 year lifetime for the device.
Summary: I will not sugarcoat my experience with Magellan, it has been awful. The units (I bought two), freeze unexpectedly, overheat routinely, and I've been trying to return them to Magellan. Tech support is in the Phillipines and is absolutely the worst I've ever experienced.
Summary: I gave my old TomTom to my son and actually went to Best Buy to purchase another one. However, the salesman showed me a Magellan Maestro 4370 that was on a really good sale. I was hesitant because I didn't know alot about Magellan and knew that TomTom made a good GPS.
Summary: the magellan maestro 4370 it was used, never it do not works battery didn't charge. I understand I bough a new product but the really it was different. When i tried to use it's has a pre address.
Summary: Not much to say great idea,just locks up like your computer does when your DSL is not working. I have an older Magellan but the voice died had great luck up until then this one i,m hoping to go on line to see if they have any updates for the problem.
Summary: I cannot rate it with 0 star; otherwise, it should be 0 star. I bought this GPS at Best Buy for $150 before my trip to CA a month ago. I updated it with the newest software and tested it for a whole month. It worked very well and I like it very much'during my testing.
Summary: This model sucks. The interface is slow, and my unit had problem after problem. I called tech support and they told me it was normal to have problems from time to time and that I should turn it off and back on again. What a nusance.
