Summary: I have a Garmen Nuvi and used it often. My wife said she needed it so I bought the Magellian. It doesn't seem better than the Garmen, just different, some ways better, some ways worse. I like the bell that sounds when you are to turn. It is much better than the Garmen's "Turn right" -- - yeah, where???? The Magellian says the street name which is also good. But the Magellian is a awful lot chattier than the Garmen, sometiems good, sometimes not.
Summary: very bright display and easy to us. extremely handy on trips where you are not sure where you are going. have used other units but this one is far superior. the only negative that i can see is any update that is required to have the most up to date features is quite expensive.
Summary: A very simple basic GPS, very easy and friendly use...if you are looking for a GPS which is going to show you the way and you do not want to spend a lot of money on features you are not going to use, this is it!
