  • Summary: I bought this GPS because I hear good thing about it. I like that I has a lifetime map updates and it tell live traffic events. It's a great sizes and very friendly user. I just don't know what it's wrong with it, because it wants to power down every time even when it's plugging to the car charger. It maybe the charger or the GPS . Other than that this is a great GPS for the price and is up there with the most expensive gps's.

great value without all the bells and whistles, would buy again!

  • Summary: I read some reviews on line and this unit was touted as great bang for the buck. My wife uses it for business. We like the screen which was larger than our old unit. We like the volume as it is easily heard over the car noise. The warning to exit and turns start at about 2 miles out. The trip planning could be a little more clear but since we did not get a set of instructions I can't really complain.

Device is better than support

  • Summary: Since Magellan seems to be the only company that has partnered with AAA to provide their Tour Book information (which can updated for free by AAA members) it gives them a definite advantage.
  • Pros: The device works fine, although it tells me I have arrived home when passing a neighbors house about four houses away. Fortunately I come home sober and don't go into the wrong driveway. ;-), Rerouting is very fast. AAA Tour Book info is also great!
  • Cons: Magellan leaves older customers in the dust by no providing the same perks as they now do on almost all of their popular models: free map and traffic updates.

Why Pay More? Its everything you want from a GPS and then sum!

  • Summary: One of the easiest to use, bright screen,chime sounds to confirm the turn or exit(comes in handy when there are multiple streets at night)just try to get it lost it will always keep you on course and the traffic alerts is a plus This is my second Magellan and I've never lost a signal I would not buy anything else...You can also check the accuracy of your speedometer when not programmed to a destination.

OLD MAP ON BRAND NEW UNIT!!!!!

Avid Shopper, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Unit was purchased brand new in December 2011. Will not even find my neighborhood which has been built for over 5 years!!!!! Now I'm stuck either fooling around with the hassle of returning the GPS or paying the outlandish $100 fee for updating the maps. Why do good Christmas ideas always turn out to be not so good of a deal to begin with?!

I CAN FIND STARBUCKS!!!!!!!

Patricia Brouillette, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: I CAN HAVE IT FIND THE CLOSEST STARBUCKS!!!!!! ISN'T THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING??? It is a nice and small navigator. I like the fact that it has a chargeable battery so you can use it while you are in the house and preview the route before you actually leave. You do have the option of shortest time, shortest distance, on freeways or avoid freeways if possible. You can have it locate places such as the closest Starbucks, or whatever your addition is.

Love this GPS!

cjblack1304, Ebay
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Simple to use straight from the package. Love the AAA points of interest. Screen size and clarity are amazing. Enough customization of the features to make it your own. My least favorite thing is that I can not just enter a city and street, you have to have a full address, but I can learn to live with that.

GREAT DEAL on a GREAT Easy to Use Auto GPS

thephball, Ebay
17 February 2011
  • Summary: Remanufactured by Magellan with a full as new on year warranty at less than half the retail price; plus, so easy to use you’ll do fine even if you just throw out the manual and just start using it. This is an extremely user-friendly unit with a multitude of easy to find touch screen switchable options and settings.
