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

Bike Dad, Amazon

  • 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...

Worst GPS I've ever owned

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.

JUNK DO NOT BUY

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...

You get what you pay for. This is a cheap product!

Marcelo Arruda, Amazon
18 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this item because of its 7 inch display and am utterly disappointed in it. From bad to worth here are my impressions: (a) The speaker is of inferior quality, delivering a muffled and unclear sound; (b) The unit does not support changing the voice; (c) The mount is flimsy, which causes the...

Clearly dated address database

Leonard, Amazon
20 December 2010
  • Summary: Age and failing eyesight drove me to buy the largest screen I could find. I found this baby for $149 so couldn't pass it up. First two addresses I wanted to program in weren't in the database, and my home address has been there almost 40 years.......go figure! Next thing..
