Summary: I drive for a living, and needed a new GPS. I got this one on a great sale, and HATED it at first. Within an hour I realized that it was far superior to my TomTom. The ONLY downside is the inability to change voice. Everything else, from user interface to design is intuitive and well done. Give it a chance, you'll be hooked quickly...
Summary: Bought a rrefurb for $80. Registration is a hassle. A few more minutes spent designing the mount would have helped in that whether mounting on windshild or dash, unit faces into the the sun or street lights. Unit is very intuitive & user friendly. Download is the opposite...help is non-existant & still can't figure out how to get updated maps.
Summary: This is the 3rd Magellan I've owned and I still like it. This one has a larger screen which is nice. The way the plug fits into the frame was a bit odd to figure out at first and not so nice for me since I frequently take it on the road for use in a rental car. Other than that, it's a nice unit and a good deal for the money.
Summary: Upgrade from an older unit (they stop working when you drop them into a bucket of water). Been using it for about a month. Works great out of the box, no-brainer to set up and use. Quite accurate - shows a lot of minor and private roads. It also shows at least one road in my area that doesn't exist. I gave it a 4 for performance because I'm unable to get the Magellan Content Manager software to recognize it.
Summary: THE ONLY REASON I GIVE IT 4 STARS IN PERFORMANCE IS THAT IT CAN NOT SEE ONE-WAY STREETS BUT BESIDE THAT I THINK IT IS AMAZING I HAVE HAD IT FOR 2 MONTHS I HAVE NOT LOADED THE UP DATED BUT THAT IS AT LEAST 2YEARS AWAY THIS IS MY 2 SECOND MAGELLAN AND THAT LASTED 5 YEARS BEFORE I DROPPED DOWN THE BASEMENT STEPS
Summary: This was an excellent product. The precision in which it gives direction and specifically identifies street signs, made it easy to follow while driving. Moreover it is virtually impossible to make a wrong turn. With that said, I bought this product second hand. A home address was already programed in it and I have not as yet determined how to delete it or over-ride it to input my address and the originating designation.
Summary: this is a great unit for it's age.. works as advertised. i have not been able to updated the maps yet still trying to link the unit with the magellan web site. the unit size is just right for my truck highly recommand as a alt.
The magellan gps has set us free and saves us lots of time and frustration.

Summary: We received our first gps years ago as a present. We travel a lot and could not believe how this simple device changed our life. We could now navigate any city with easy. We have been using our gps a lot since then both locally and out of town. It was a Magellan and although we are not techogeeks were able to use the device. recently we dropped it and thought it was dead. So we ordered a new magellan it was an easy transition and looked and worked very well.
