Summary: A Very Good tiny GPS has a big battery power. I am loving it. Pros: Good battery Power, Sturdy Design, Quickly Re-Calculates, Tiny MP3 Player Cons: At times catching up signal takes little longer time when you are badly in need of your GPS to Navigate you
Summary: Easy to setup and use. Features are basic, but all that you need, with out being overpowering. Music and photos are a plus. Screen is not as daylight readable as I would like but better than some. Volume is low, even when jacked into an auxiliary audio port, output is low. A robust unit that stands up well to rain/spray and motorcycle vibration. These units are very outdated, firmware updates are hard to acquire as well as expensive as are maps.
Won't update give directions not ask for. Bad Bad Bad

Summary: Wouldn't be recognized by my computer so I couldn't update goes into directions not ask for. The battery doesn't last as long as my 1424 and the power plug for this is in an inconvenient place. Not thought out when manufactured.
Summary: Exactly as advertised, mint condition. It would benefit from downloadable routes from Google or Tyre, or coordinates in stead of addresses, but it will get you where you need to be. The music feature is great for my motorcycle, the pictures not so much.
Summary: It's not junk and it works -- meaning it pulls down the traffic signal. But there is NO TRAFFIC information being broadcast in the Washington DC metro area. Simply put, the technology relies on FM radio stations to provide traffic information.... and they don't. At least not where I live. Useless. Worse, the unit it works with -- a Magellan Roadmate 2200T series hasn't had a map update in 4 years... and that is a long time.
Summary: can not update maps for this gps magellan 2200t so dont waste your money. Too old and out dated. Buyer beware of some of the gps units out there. If they sound to good to be true they most likely are. I would suggest the TomTom xl335 free map updates.
Summary: I bought this used GPS unit to mount on my motorcycle. It's great! I can use the touch screen with gloves on and it's weatherproof. Even though it was 3 to 4 years old it serves my needs just fine. I paid $29 including shipping, but the download to update the maps was about $80 so I didn't upgrade. For 99% of my road trips it has more than enough correct information to get me where I want to go. I love this and won't leave home without it!
Summary: this unit is a great tool for thoes who love to explore.... the only down side is that you half to exit one map to view another.. not like maps on yahoo, google, national geographic that do a hibrid (city and topo)....
