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.
"Returned twice, called tech support so many times!"

Pros: Great clarity, simple zooming option allow view of exits, great clear voice, easy idiot proof touch screen, easy mounting options, best map graphics, quick re-routing during detours, perfect size for viewing and ending dash clutter. Has trucker chip!
Cons: The entire problem can be pin-pointed to one or two places. The battery and the cables that attach it to the power. I've called so many times trying to find out why the device just stops running it's ridiculous. Refuses to charge or charges too slow!
Summary: The unit seemed to work well (one day on the back porch) until I tried to update/upgrade the software (not the maps). The unit was purchased with software two versions old. Unfortunately the software update broke the unit -- it went into an endless loop. Magellan tech support said it wasn't something a user could fix and since it was still under warranty (only a few days old) it could be returned for repairs/replacement.
