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.
Pre-loaded European Maps not included with this unit as advertised.

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. What are you going to do to remedy this situation?
Summary: I bought this supposedly refurbished Magellan the navigator worked sufficiently but the audio was distorted and made a terrible screeching sound when the unit would attempt to give vocal directions so I returned it to my local Walmart for a full refund. I then proceeded to buy a brand new unit I am waiting for it to be delivered ? I was not happy at all with the refurbished unit and will not ever buy anything that has been refurbished again.

Summary: Seen the ad for this GPS and even thou we had always had TOMTOM's before, I thought it was a good price and would try it. Purchased this item and tried to update the maps. First thing that pops up is," can't update maps, not enough memory." What the heck!! What good is it if you can't update the maps?! Started reading the fine print and find where it says that you have to buy an extra memory card.
Summary: I purchased the Magellan GPS because of the lifetime updates. I purchased another one before this but I couldn't update it. I travel often and it was a great reassurance that I had a GPS that would always be up to date as I go from state to state. It was easy to setup and very easy to use even without reading the manual. I like the features, it has a large screen, and I just think it's a great product at a great price.
