Summary: I was very disappointed with the GPS, bought it for a trip to Calif. and could not get it to hold a charge, after checking the battery realized it was bad, and have ordered a new battery hoping that it will turn on so I can try to see if the unit is any good. never will buy a remanufactured item again.
Summary: I bought a Maestro 5310 March of last year from Amazon. I recently decided to upgrade the map which was two years old when I bought the GPS. I also decided to renew the traffic link. The map upgrade is $50.00 which is a discount from the regular price of $80.00. The traffic link is $40.00 for one year subscription. I only paid $200.00 for this unit and Magellan wants to charge me half of that to bring this unit up to date.
Summary: When I opened the box for the first 5310 I received last year I found the power connection broken. After some arguing with Magellan tech support they replaced it. A few weeks ago the power connection broke on the replacement unit - which seems to be easy to do. I called Magellan and was on "terminal hold" for quite sometime.
Summary: I've had this unit for a year now and up until last month I loved it. I've used it primarily in my home town for routing to estate and garage sales on weekends. My main complaints were that the map database was old (2007) and you don't have the ability to download updates. And if you take a trip out of town and want to go through little towns and use scenic routes, you can't - it only recognizes actual addresses.
Summary: This product is the second magellan maestro I have purchased from Amazon. The first one stopped working after 6 wks. The second never worked at all. I have owned a magellan gps which worked well until I squashed the screen and broke it. I do not know whether my problems come from buying thru Amazon, or bying Magellan.
Summary: The packing on the Magellan Maestro should have a warning and all store that sell it should warn that the maps that come with the 5310 are old, outdated and do not include Alaska. I just bought this for my father in-law and the first thing he did was try to get a route from my house (in Anchorage, AK) to his. And why should I pay for a 79.00 DVD if Magellan won't even tell me if any Alaska streets on on it. GO figure...
Summary: Sirs, I recently purchased a 5310 GPS on 10/30/2008 at Costco for my HVAC business and I was shocked to learn the 5310 GPS unit with a production date of 10/01/2008 has a map that is from 2006/2007 and the update due in the first quarter of 2009 will cost $[...] more, and would not be provided for me at no cost, I learned this after speaking to your resolution specialists. This is my second unit I also own a 4040, I did buy the upgrade for this unit 6 months ago.
