Summary: I've been using my unit for about 2 years. It doesn't display the bad behavior that other people complain about, like freezing up or not turning on. But it has a couple of problems, one of which I would characterize as fatal: 1. It sometimes chooses silly routes. Last week, it directed me to get off a highway at exit 59, re-enter the highway at exit 60, and get back off for good at exit 61. The extra loop was not needed. It did this twice. 2.
Summary: The only functions that work are the address and the previous places. POIs cause the unit to restart. It also has horrible lag time, I'll drive by the road and it will forever to catch up. Get ANYTHING else.
Excellent product, as good if not better than new!

Summary: I purchased 2 of these for my daughters and they both just love them. They have taken several trips with them and not had even the first issue. I am a firm believer in buying factory renewed products and this just adds to my belief. Both units are refurbished and work as good if not better than brand new.
Summary: I have a Magellan RoadMate GPS. Two stars because the functionally of the unit is good. Only two because of the rest of this review. When I bought my RoadMate it came with lifetime map updates. Recently I have have been trying to update them. We use iMacs and MacBooks at our house and for work, I can run Windows, but only in a virtual machines. We do not have a "Windows native machine".
Summary: i love this gps.. i bought it for me and put it in my vehicle and my husband drove my vehicle on a trip one day and he was impressed with all the functions.. the showing of the road signs even before you get to the signs.. i am in the process of buying him one now...
