It is nice to know what these are when you are out ...

Summary: I had the Black & White version but it stopped working so I bought this one for my snowmobile as it tells me lakes & rivers on the snowmobile trails. It is nice to know what these are when you are out in the middle of nowhere on the trails.
Summary: Lost my Color Merridian overboard and had to replace the GPS. When I recieved the new GPS I called Magellan to get a new unlock code so I could load the charts on my replacement GPS. I was informed I would have to purchase a new bluenav CD since they only issue one unlock code with no exceptions.
Summary: I am new to the GPS world. As a novice I give Magellan Meridien Color one star for its nice display basic location functions. My main purpose of aquiring this unit was to navigate in Europe as well as in US.
Summary: I am very impressed with the performance and reliability of this product. There is a learning curve with which one must deal, however, easily overcome by using the included CD Rom Users Manual.
Summary: If you can still find one of these it should be pretty cheap and a good base unit. This was one of the first GPS units that I ever learned how to use. Magellan offers a great line of products and once you are ready to upgrade you will already know the fundamentals of the Magellan interface.
