Summary: This GPS unit was advertised as being pre-loaded with European maps, and both the box and manual said the same thing. However, it had only the North American maps loaded - no European maps. We leave for Europe in 5 days and the unit is useless to us without the European maps.
Summary: This arrived WITHOUT the pre-loaded maps the description boasts about. I'm sure it was just a factory error but we won't take the chance again. Customer Service for Magellan, (the wait on hold was 30 minutes) finally concluded that it was a faulty product and we returned it for a full refund.
Summary: Magellan failed to download the European maps that come with so the quality control is extremely disappointing I have a bulky object of NO use I am dragging around Europe. I have to cut my travels short due to this error.
Summary: This was a gift purchase, but the friend whom I bought it for loves it. She works as a delivery person so going into strange area's to deliver products requires help. She says it gets her there, tells her if there is traffic or road closings... also large easy to read screen. Lifetime map updates.
