Summary: I loved how compact this GPS is and that it can be easily mounted on my windshield. I don't like that it has to be connected to the charging device and doesn't have the ability to charge but it is not a huge detriment.
Summary: It's a GPS and a darn good one at that. Some reviewers seem to think that because it does not have bells and whistle features that it won't get to from one point to another. It does. My unit was a factory refurbished item that came from Amazon BUT it was not a refurb. It was brand new. Maybe I lucked out but nevertheless the 1210 was used the first day and it worked flawlessly.
Summary: I recently just bought the Magellan Roadmate 1210 GPS. I have to say I was a little e nervous it was going to be too small with the 3.5'' screen, but I have to say I don't mind it at all. In fact I love this little unit. Most GPS's take you the longest way possible and a lot of my friends complain about theirs, But i have yet to have a problem with it yet. I do a lot of traveling and even though this is considered an entry level unit, it was well worth the money!
Summary: I purchased this as a refurbished unit (not from amazon) for about $53. Upon receiving it, I tested it out, and it was horrendous. The main reason why I would not recommend this product is the fact that it took somewhere around 20 minutes to get a signal and route my destination. 20 minutes? Really? And I tried it multiple times. When I compared this to my 4 year old Garmin Streetpilot C340, the Garmin is a star. Finds the route, easy to use, no problems.
Summary: Easy to use, but outdated maps (map version was two years old upon receipt in 10/10), but there are roads OVER THREE YEARS OLD that are not in the map library!! It's expensive to update maps (costs $80 on line), so you are far ahead spending more for a newer unit, which should come with newer maps - be sure to check what version comes with the unit you are considering.
Summary: For the money you can't really beat this machine. It has everything that the average commuter needs to get around. I live in Portland Oregon; sometimes when traffic gets heavy I exit off the freeway and it routes me to my destination via. back roads. Simple and easy to use.
