Summary: The GPS came with the original features and software when it was designed in 2011. However, after following direction and downloading the updated version of the software and map, the GPS works fine as I expected. It is very responsive and easy to use. I like its one touch feature and POI. Only minor drawback is when you exceed speed limit, its announcement just as "warning" is difficult to hear and to understand what it really warns you about.
Summary: Received and downloaded the latest Map update. The unit freezes up/locks up and has a lot of errors/anomalies while in operation. Elevation data is not even close to being reasonable. My unit displayed below seal level one time. I was not in a tunnel or below sea level. This unit has made me a lifetime NON Customer of Magellan GPS products.
Summary: Works great and can be updated; unlike my Cobra GPSM2100M that never seemed to work right. It would tell you to turn left when you could see the destination to the right. I have not had that problem with the Magellan and it's easy to use. I would recommend this GPS to a first time user for sure.
Summary: I wanted a very basic GPS at a reasonable price. This unit works well, is very user-friendly, has good audible directions, and has some good features. However, the traffic alerts aren't particularly helpful. Even in major metropolitan areas, it will often show no delays where the traffic is at a standstill; or it shows delays where none exist. I had also read bad things about the downloadable updates--that they wiped out the memory, etc.
Summary: I bought 2 of these. The first one froze up after 3 weeks in my car. The second one I gave to my wife for Christmas 2013 and it did the same thing about 3/20/2014. Trying to get a response from Magellan on either chat or by telephone was a non-starter. Chat had me on hold for over an hour before I attempted the telephone. The telephone had me on hold over an hour as well before I had to give up.
Summary: This is a good, overall GPS. I would recommend it. The screen is easy to use, read, and the voice is clear. It is not fancy, just basic for around town. Sometime I myself know a faster route, but listen to how the voice directs me. It always will get me there, sometimes the longer route. This is my second Magellan GPS and I find is more user friendly than the competetors.
Summary: This is my second roadmate. The first one I had for a few years and wore it out but even though it wouldn't plan out the trip anymore it still gave me the global coordinates, my car speed, the present time, the location of where I was at the time. I couldn't get it upgraded so I bought this one which is much better and at a much better price. Years ago GPS's were more expensive.
