First Impression: It's a keeper

Thomas Pierno, Amazon
6 January 2010
  • Summary: After a few weeks of researching a GPS unit for my wife, it was a toss-up between the Garmin 855 and the Magellan 4700. Voice Recognition (VR) was a must for my wife to use it. I wanted her hands on the wheel.

  • Summary: Followup Comments - 12/10/2009 - I used my unit for the first time for Thanksgiving travel. A family member did the driving while I did navigation and I had much hands-on time with the unit. We always had a good signal.

Great unit with nice features

  • Summary: Overall Rating: 4.5 stars I love this unit! I had a Magellan Maestro 3100 for 3 years and I really loved it. When I broke it last week I almost cried. I could have bought a new one for $70 on Amazon, but I saw this one and thought it looked nice and seemed to have great features.

4700 as good as 4000

Jake, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Last weekend was my first opportunity to use this product. I have a Magellan Maestro 4000 and it's a very good product with excellent voice announcements/directions. The 4700 uses the same voice but some of the directions/street names were not quite as crystal clear but still recognizable.

Great GPS for the Price

xeno, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: I'll preface my review by saying that I read many of the negative reviews on this GPS before purchasing it, as well as the positives. It seems that many of the problems that were software related have now been corrected by the most recent updates, since I haven't experienced these problems myself.

  • Summary: This is my first GPS of any sort, so I don't have much to compare it to. Most of time it's superior to going home and copying down some directions from Google Maps, in part because I don't have to go back home. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and am still figuring it out somewhat.

Decent bang for buck

Your Average American Guy, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: I have had this unit just over 2 weeks now, got it the first day it was released. I replaced my old Magellan 1412. Over all, I have been pleased with the functionality for price ratio. It worked right out of the box, finding the satellite signal within a minute.

Magellan GPS

Pogee, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Overall very good. Excellent speaking voice. Large, clear screen. Multiple advance notifications of turns. On a few occasions, a little bit quirky or wrong; for example, "Make third turn off rotary" instead of second turn; "You've reached your destination" when we hadn't.

Great, Inexpensive GPS

Hannah E. Myers, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: The Magellan Maestro 4700 is a great GPS. It's easy to use, although once in a while I need to push a button more than once. It's user friendly, and intuitive, the bluetooth is extremely helpful, and while the sound quality isn't perfect, it's much better than the speakerphone feature on any of my...
