Don't waste your time!

Benelux2000, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this a few days ago and I had to get a wall charger, I plugged it in for 24 hours and I tried to play with it! Seriously, it wouldn't let me do ANYTHING! It was hard to push the buttons. I finally got to the main menu and then it blacked out. Not even used once! What a crap machine!

Good, BUT...

  • Summary: I like Magellan devices. I have a couple different models, and they balance good features with ease of use. They can be a little slow to acquire a signal initially, but that is typical of every brand I've used.

  • Summary: When it was new it took a long time to get any signal or its location. Then the battery stopped working. Now it will not find ANY signal or a location ever. Never been dropped or abused.

It gets the job done.

  • Summary: received it as a Christmas gift a few years back and has lived in my car and served it's life very diligently. I to am annoyed at just how much they charge for map updates for it as the basemap is getting very old. one could easily get a new gps for the cost of a map update.

  • Summary: i purchased this gps unit, after doing quite a bit of research. to be honest, initially i was leaning towards the garmin 255. after taking a look at the magellan roadmate 1212, my mind was then made up. first, the features i found to be desireable...maps of the u.s., canada and puerto rico..

Great GPS

Benjamin Marks, Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: The magellan works great. It is easy to use. The best feature is that it finds the directions quickly, very little waiting around. I have a Garmin and Magellan, this Magellan is faster in finding the route. However, I like how the Garmin attaches to the windshield better.

good gps

Richard Steven Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: really good gps system for a great price. operates just as described. vocal turn by turn directions are great! only problem i have is that it only works when plugged in to lighter socket which is fine with me but probably is a battery problem. I would buy this gps again.

As Good As, or Better than the Rest

Ray-of-Sunshine, Amazon

  • Summary: I have enjoyed using 'GPS" as a hobby for about ten years. With all the old handhelds, Garmin was head and shoulders above the others. However, the market is so competitive today that it is hard to boil it down to a single manufacturer.

easy to use and long-lasting

Some guy on the web, Amazon

  • Summary: We received our Garmin 1212 GPS a few years ago as a gift, and I thought I'd make a review to say we have been happy with it the entire time. It is very easy to use compared to every other GPS I've seen since.
