Weird unpredictable,unreliable routing

KKN, Amazon
27 July 2010
  • Summary: I have been using Magellan maestro 3100 for few years and am very happy with it, but recently battery started losing charge quickly. Instead of spending money on new battery & also on newer map updates, I thought it will be much better to buy a new unit.
