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: 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: 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.
Summary: Easy to use, but outdated maps (map version was two years old upon receipt in 10/10), but there are roads OVER THREE YEARS OLD that are not in the map library!!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: I took my hubby on vacation to california and it was so nice to have the GPS!! I love how it give turn by turn directions and it works amazingly great! I decided to buy it because I can not read a map to save my life!!
