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.
Summary: I like this unit, It is very accurate for the most part. The volume needs to be a little louder though. I had a Garmin 885 which was spectacular but had to return it because of the very low volume. I would reccommend the Magellan for its easy to use menus and accuracy.
Summary: It is a very good unit and performs as expected. Only drawback is the pairing with cellular phones being very limited in reference to the newer phones. I have a Motorola 755 and can not pair up. Still appreciate the other features.
Summary: My main reason for buying this unit is it stated that it notified you when you exceed the posted speed limit. Most of the time the speed limit is never indicated and when you do exceed the limit the GPS states one (!) time "You are over the speed limit". It would be better to give the operator a choice of how many times you are alarmed/warned. The basic GPS capabilities are the same as any other GPS I've owned. Certainly nothing special.
