Summary: It works pretty good for the first year, but after that i am having problems getting it to power on. When i chose fastest route it gives me a rd that goes off the main route then back on again and turns out to be longer route.

Summary: I bought this 4 yrs ago and am a fan of magellan I will say it many times Garmon are great for bells and whistles but Magellan get you there with the best beeps etc to your exit,,,,,,,yes there rae glitchs on this GPS every GPS has, neg is the battery went dead within 1-2 yrs so now it only works...
Summary: I have a small sedan and many of today's huge GPS units would severely obstruct my view outside. But this Magellan is very compact and it sits neatly in the corner of my windshield. I have updated it to latest software via Magellan's web site.
Summary: I like Megallan most of the time esp it has detour directions ready when there is a road condition. However, it gave directions to turn right and let me drive in circles while the destination is on the left hand side a couple of times lately. Now I don't trust it to give directions any more.
Summary: I picked up one of these as a refurbished model for $45 and brought it home and updated the latest maps for free from the Magellan website. Very easy but it took about 3 hours to download the new maps and 4 hours all together.
