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: 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.
Summary: My husband got a sales job that requires him to drive all over the state of Florida. We aren't from here, so that's a challenge. He was wasting so much gas trying to get around the old fashioned way, a map! We broke down and purchased this device. In a fairly short period of time we have saved hundreds of dollars in gas and tons of time. It works great!
Pros: Used it from Ohio to Florida, i loved the way i could easily find points of interest along my route and the ability to just pick the center of a city or town as a destination. Locks on to sats the middle of my living room. Shortcut screen is awsome.
Cons: The female voice is horrible. the 3D perspective view could use some tweaking, The biggest con is the zoom in and out, if you touched the wrong part of the bar it would zoom out and show the planet earth...
Summary: I bought this GPS about three weeks back and used it in my recent trip to Grand Canyon and Los Angles and found it very helpful. I had almost settled on Tom-Tom 730 before looking at the Magellan 4370 at a local store. After playing with it a little bit, I was amazed by the features and speed provided by Magellan. Just did a search and routing to Grand Canyon on Garmin Nuvi 885T, Tom Tom 730 and the Magellan Maestro from CT.
Summary: I needed a GPS for an upcoming trip and looked into the Magellan Maestro because I already have another Magellan handheld GPS. HITS - I was very impressed with the touch screen and ease of use. I would advise getting a screen protector right off the bat. It has one from the factory, but it's not meant for long term use. The choice of 3d or 2d maps was a great feature also. Depending on how you like to view the screen, the tilt and panning is also very cool.
