Summary: I really like this GPS. The screen is large. The volume is plenty loud enough. I keep the volume set at medium. At dusk it switches from a bright to a dark screen. The voice is pleasant and easy to understand. It is easy to enter street data. The directions are accurate. I give the device a mediocre review for two reasons. I purchased two (not from amazon). Both were new and the battery would not hold a charge. However, it is easily replaced for about $19.
Summary: We've own this Magellan 5310 now for about a year now and are very happy with it. And we're pretty pleased with it because it has taken us from point A to point B very reliably. We live in the Snohomish County in the State of Washington and whenever we drive in to Seattle it is like hell on wheels. After our more than 50 trips into Seattle we are now sort of comfortable with the city's layout but not really.
Summary: I bought this product to replace a Garmin I had broken. I was happy with the Garmin, but the Magellan is better and bigger with advanced technology that makes it a great value. It is user friendly, the big screen is a nice feature, and it does have more points-of-interests preloaded with some limited helpful restaurant reviews. On start-up every morning, it does retrieve the sattelite information and locate your position much faster than the Garmin.
Summary: The 5 inch screen is a very big improvement over the 4" screen. I went from an installed GPS unit in my car to this unit. It is easy to see and very easy to program. Maps are up to date and the AAA tour book is very useful.
Summary: I got this unit as a Christmas gift, I think it came from Costco. I have never owned a GPS unit before, so I didn't really know what to look/ask for in a GPS. The first thing I noticed out of the box on this unit is the size of the screen, it is big! Most GPS's I've seen are the ones with small screens, so I was surprised at how big the screen is.
Summary: I purchased this item and have been using it regularly, it tends to try to send me on some strange routes some times with many turns but when I had absolutely no idea where I was going it was usually fairly good. Had a couple of addresses that were not located correctly and it sometimes does not know specific towns if they are too small. Graphics are good, traffic alerts seem generally pointless to me and not usefull.
Summary: I purchased this unit after evaluating several different vendors and models. It was exactly what I wanted however - PLEASE NOTE THE UNIT DOES NOT HAVE BLUETOOTH NOR VOICE COMMANDS. Amazon has yet to change the descriptions as someone else noted this months ago. The unit works well and I have done the free OS upgrade .
