Summary: Overall a good purchase. Pros: Auto-complete suggestions to fill in suggestions for towns, street names, and addresses saves time with entering the full name and helps ensure accuracy. Hasn't gotten me lost, told me "re-routing", lost signal, or told me to "turn right now!" without advance notice.
Summary: The GPS maps work well. The voice recognition is almost worthless and the bluetooth for the phone does not work. The basic GPS unit is strong and the picture clear. I would not purchase a unit with the additional features again.
Summary: It takes a long time to load.The blue tooth receives well but the transmission is sub par. It reroutes quickly when you make a wrong turn. I like this better than the maestro 4040 that I have. The maps are up to date. I do wish Magellan would give map updates for less cost or free.
Summary: i like tat you can avoid part of route great feature when traffic etc. but actual movement is not as sharp as garmin so if someone does not need this feature go with garmin but as a rule it's a very important feature for example the gps sends you to g.w.
Summary: The Magellan 4700 GPS has been working very well the only thing I don't like about it is that it takes a while for it to load after it is turned on. Also the speaker isn't very loud while using it to talk with Bluetooth and your cell phone.
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.
Summary: The GPS is great and very user friendly! Magellan needs to understand that people have high speed internet and can download 2GB files instead of making you pay for an SD card version. Also, they only release new maps once a year and make you pay through the nose for those.
Summary: All in all I like the unit quite a bit: - Easy to program - Route changes made easily - Nice Display - Lots of POI's / Broken out nicely - Bluetooth works well - Very good notification before turns This is the second gps that I have owned.
