Summary: One of my favorite GPS brands and I dont have to hear recalulating. This is GPS works faster than what I was using. so far I have no complaints about it as it has gotten me all over with out having to go through tolls or waisting my time.
Summary: Just got this and have had Garmins in the past but for the value this is a great little unit. Only complaint i might have would be that the screen lighting is a little hard to see in bright light, but that is par for most gps units.
Summary: I have liked this product and it is great to have on the road. I enjoy the audio indicators to alert you of a turn before and once you are there (Great especially if you miss first notice of upcoming turn). It is easy to use & enter information. My only issue is it is hard to find nearby beaches wihtout exact address. However, everything else is great. Maps are clear and size is great to easily see all street names.
Updated w/ new maps (had it for a week, no regrets so far)

Summary: This is my first GPS but some of my friends are up to their 4th. I'm directionally challenged and always wanted one but the complaints of friends with GPS and the huge price tag made me wait it out. With all the upgraded features and prices dropping so much, I could not resist buying one. I've only been testing it in my neighborhood and to work but it's been accurate; 1 error in a street name but the SD map was from 2008.
Summary: All these things screw up once in a while, but this is as good as any out there,and for 120 bucks and a year of free traffic update service (or was it 6 months ?) you cannot get a better GPS. It is popular with thieves, also; I have had to buy 4 of them due to Atlanta democrats stealing 3 from my vehicles.
Summary: On a trip last fall to the lower southeastern coast of SC a friend who was traveling with us had a personal GPS. It was extremely helpful in finding our way around the resort area we were visiting. Recalling the experience I thought a GPS would be a nice Christmas gift for my wife. Being a regular Ebay shopper I went to the site to look for one. Among the Tom Toms, Garmins and others I felt the Magellan models offered the same capabilities at reasonable prices.
Summary: The only thing this product is missing is a SD slot. Since this review requires 100 characters I can only name a few: Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, John Wayne, Bert Reynolds, Santa Claus, ok, that guess that's close.
Summary: First the Pro's of this GPS unit : The wide screen is great compared to a few other GPS units I have owned in the past and easy to see the roads and points of interest. It was very easy to install on the windsheild with the suction adaptor included plus its easy to remove the unit by just a lift of the lock. It came with a 90 day free trial of road hazard warning and traffic back up to give you an option of detour to avoid the area before you came to it.
