Summary: Bought this unit for a backup. Got the item in good shape. I updated the firmware as the firmware was rather old. After updating this unit worked better than my unit that I was using, so it is my primary unit now and my old one is now the backup. Putting this unit into good use.
It's worth over $200 with the Magellan Customer Loyalty Program

Summary: This older GPS will be very familiar to current GPS owners. The layout of the keys, screens were familiar and this allowed me to use it right away. I had to get the driver (on the Streets and Destinations CD) and updated the maps.
Summary: This was my first GPS - worked great an then was stolen. Picked up a Meridian Gold, but didn't like the larger size - not as "pocketable", so I got another 330 and upgraded the basemap and firmware - now I'm back in business.
An oldy but goody - works as good as any other for less

Summary: Does not have color, street maps are line drawings, sometimes maps are inaccurate -- but can't beat if for the money and altogether is good enough for it's purpose -- to help navigate from one place to another.
Summary: The Map 330 was my 1st GPS unit, and I loved the simplicity and layout of the buttons. Crazy accurate even out in the pine barrens of NJ, shows dirt roads, streams, old rail lines, what a blast. I was so devasted when it finally died (6 years not bad - had a hard life) I had to have another.
