The backup camera has horrible image and its unusable at night

Stuart L., Amazon
4 June 2015
  • Summary: The backup camera has horrible image and its unusable at night. Firmware update disabled the UBS port making map updates impossible. Magellan knew about the issue but released the firmware update anyway. They offered me a replacement downgraded unit no backup camera for $175.00.

A map in the lap would be faster and more accurate than this POS.

  • Summary: This GPS is the slowest update I have ever experienced and I go back to the GPS units that read in degrees, minutes and seconds! The batteries are good for a total of maybe 10 minutes when fully charged. Not a problem as it can stay plugged in, but here is the trouble.

Disappointment

Lalelo, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: First unit died after about 6 mos. Had a difficult conversation with customer service(?) in far-off land, who was very difficult to understand. They sent a "refurbished" unit. (Neither of the units had a battery life even close to 5 hours and even when plugged in to the car, would shut down saying...

WILL NOT PROGRAM FOR NATIONAL PARKS AND STATE AND FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADDRESSES

wmjbutler "Just Me", Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Even with Magellan Customer Support helping, this device will not program destinations for National Parks, and addresses such as State Highway, Interstates, Routes, etc. For example, I tried to program it for RED FEATHER LODGE, 300 State Route 64, Tusayan, AZ 86023, and while Magellan concedes that...

Worst GPS I've ever owned

cybodhi "cybodhi", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I've owned several and this is the worst. Long existing roadways mislabeled, missing areas, and near impossible coordination with a Mac. I have owned this unit for 16 months, yet my lifetime map update has not produced a single update. The software and support is a joke.

Do not buy from Magellan

Mark J. Heulitt, MD, Amazon
19 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit about 7 months ago. My first unit did not function and the end seller quickly replaced it. But recently my unit has been powering down. It was obvious an issue with the charger. I have both this unit and the backup camera and it was installed by Best Buy professionally.

drh, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: The new one I received would not update maps so after THREE HOURS on the telephone they decided the new one was defective and I should return it and it would be replaced. I had to pay the shipping charges to get it back to them even though it was not my fault a new product was defective.

DON'T BUY MAGELLAN

Bob, Amazon
31 January 2012
  • Summary: I have 2 Magellan units, this model being one of them. I actually like the GPS unit and it actually works fine. The reason for the rating and the title of the review is Magellan. If you are lucky enough to buy one of their GPS units and never need anything else, including map updates, or ANYTHING...
