Defective at the worst time...no wonder lots of refurbs out there
1 July 2012
Summary: This GPS served me fairly well (although my first update seemed to mess up its routing) for three years. It routed in basic fashion, and did not surprise me too much. The selection to favor back roads was especially good, and the POIs were quite extensive. Then I was recently ready to go on a long trip through the southern US and up the east coast. I was packed, turned it on and then NOTHING but the Magellan intro screen hanging there.
Summary: I use to laugh at people who used GPS systems. But when we decided to take an off the beaten path road trip across the states I thought it was a good idea to get one. NOW I won't leave home without it! It can give road directions find hotels (that take dogs) and just about anywhere to eat. WE LOVE OUR MAGELLAN!
Summary: Never the less items were AS IS , So I dod not expected ain good condotion. Total output for working was just near to zero . and a sit was meaant for year 2003, so the maps and POI and other things wre very very old. So just the item was garbage , nothing more.
Summary: Ive been using this navy for about 4 years and love it. Easy to navigate and use. loud and clear and says the name of the streets. Very accurate. Hasnt failed me once. I also have factory navy in my GMC and Id still rather use the Roadmate 1412. I do need to update to a new map, but it still works great. Display would be nice if it were 5".
