Did not work from day one. Doesn't really deserve a single star.

Tim Gannon, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit was sold as "refurbished to factory specifications," but after giving it a full charge, it still never worked as the directions indicated it would. I'd like to send it back and see if the specialist see things any different. I paid just under $50.00 for it, saving only a few dollars on a "used" product. This is the first time I have ever bought a product under these circumstances, and it will probably be the last.

  • 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.

There's a reason they discontinued this one

DJ, Amazon
13 July 2010
  • Summary: Bought it as a refurbished unit from Tiger Direct. Very glad I bought the service contract for it too, since it was a refurb unit. Bought it as a Christmas gift for my wife and tried it out on a 500 mile trip and it worked great. Then I ordered the 2010 map update from Magellan that came free (within 30 days of new unit) and installed the memory chip. Followed all the instructions. The unit locked up once, then started working after reset.

not worth the money!

Sunshine "movie buff", Amazon

  • 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.

OUTDATED MAPS

David Lenorman, Amazon
17 December 2009
  • 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Maestro should have a warning and all store that sell it should warn that the maps that come with the 5310 are old, outdated and do not include Alaska.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...

5310 Customer Service is Crap on a Cracker

J. Holt, Amazon
17 December 2009
  • 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.

Not worth the effort

J. Santee, Amazon
19 October 2009
  • 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.

2009 map/firmware updates make it useless

Fran Rich, Amazon
15 August 2009
  • 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.

Magellan Maestro 5310 GPS

A. Lewis, Amazon
8 May 2009
  • 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.

Didn't acquire any satellites

Bill, Amazon
1 October 2008
  • Summary: I received the 5310 in good condition, powered it up and it never acquired any satellites, even though my eTrex was able to acquire them. I read the manual, set the location to where it was and nothing helped. I called Magellin support and their supppost line didn't give a number to push for this product series, so I tried some of the others. After waiting for a while the connection was terminated by Magellin.
