Under-Powered Hardware, Bad Support Software, and a Stubborn Touchscreen
12 June 2009
Summary: Map scrolls choppy. You may not notice if this is your first GPS and you have nothing else to compare it to. Touchscreen isn't sensitive enough. If you have dry hands then you'll be tapping the same button 4 or 5 times to get the Magellan to realize you tapped the button.
I was being conservative but I've had enough of this junk!

Summary: I've been using this GPS for 4 months now. I've tried Garmin and Tomtom. I switched from a Tomtom One to this Magellan because I wanted an affordable wide-screen. The screen is nice, bright, and big. But there're some problems that bother me.. 1. It has no QWERTY keyboard. 2.
Summary: This is my first gps. I tested many units in store before buying this one at best buy. It was a toss up between this and a similar garmin. This one seemed to have much better reception and faster address recognition.
