Summary: If you ever need help from the customer service department or the tech support department then don't bother. Not only do they have a very thick Indian accent but it took me over 40 minutes on my cell phone with a customer rep to get my point across. This rep asked me bunch of questions, some even the same questions, it was like they were taking a servey, which took me over 40 minutes! All I wanted was for them to answer a simple one question!
WILL NOT PROGRAM FOR NATIONAL PARKS AND STATE AND FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADDRESSES

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 this is a legitimate address, they can't program the device to get there. The same thing happened with, Zion Park Lodge, 1 Zion Lodge, Springdale, UT 84767.
Summary: Believe me, I've done everything possible to love it but it have failed me so many times, but this time takes the top prize for the disappointment, IT JUST DIED. I bought it on November 8, 2012, since then, a total of almost 10 months of pain.. AND NOW IS DEAD! Every time I needED to go somewhere new, because it's DEAD, this GPS directs me at least 2 blocks apart from the destination and to my home it used to Figure, because IT IS DEAD NOW, 200 meters farther and on the...
Summary: Was real happy by the size and that was as for as it goes the one star is for as the size,no stars for the operation of the GPS ,I charge up the unit for hours and decided to try it out,well it wouldn't stay on it kelp cutting off saying low battery and I had it plug into the car as a backup keeping it charge,so there was no reason for it to have a low battery but it wouldn't stay on to even try and get a try out.I'll buy another another brand and never agian will I...
Summary: I have owned to Garmin units in the past one is still working the other is not. My fault I dropped it. I purchased this on a daily deal. So far It will not update to the Computer. It also takes vary long routes to get to destination. I tried switching the route preference but it still take a longer route than necessary. I am going to try to return this, and get a Garmin or Tom Tom. I hope this was not a $100 mistake.
Summary: I'm sorry for the lengthy review. I don't believe in rambling but it's kind of a long story. First, the unit itself works.... alright. Not great but reasonably well. My google maps on my smart phone actually is more accurate. But I would NEVER again purchase a Magellan product. It is the most clueless company I may have ever dealt with. I purchased a Magellan GPS product specifically because it was capable of downloading European maps.
Summary: Wanted it for the bigger screen. But the things I want to know all at once are not displayed on the screen. The navigation is horrible and it could not find Oatman Arizona although I was in Oatman. My little old Tomtom is so superior.
I bought this GPS because it was referred to me but it does not work right . last time i needed it it would not come on. it was

Summary: I bought this Megelan new as it was recommended to me. I have only had to use it a few times. It would not hold the battery. I had it plugged in the car the whole time I was driving and the last time it would not come on. It was important as I was taking a client out of town. It is past the time to return. I had a hard time getting it delivered. I do hope that I was not sent a used one.
