  • Summary: Every time I plugged my charging chord into my cigarette lighter it blew the fuse. I charge other devices into the same lighter with no problem. I have made 3 calls to product support and was on hold an average of 23 minutes, the longest period being 37 minutes, and never had a call answered. The website doesn't address this issue so it was also of no help. I am completely unsatisfied.

  • Summary: Needed GPS for upcoming roadtrip..price was good...only problem IT STOPPED WORKING AFTER ONE HOUR OF USE. Spent almost 2 hours while on my road trip with Magellan CSR and could not get it to work. Returned item (AT MY EXPENSE) to Magellan (only after more than 2 hours on line with a CSR to see if it would work.) Magellan replaced it with same model....IT ALSO DIED after using for a little over an hour.

  • Summary: I realize this is a refurbished piece but there is a problem with the speakers. We will be trying to exchange was disappointed. Would have thought it would have been tested prior to sending.

  • Summary: I used this GPS twice. Half way through my second trip it quit working. I used it twice in 3 days and it left us guessing how to get to our destination. The stores do not carry this anymore so I had to buy one for 3 times as much to get home. Wal-Mart did refund the price but it cost more on my trip that took 10 hours instead of 7.

  • Summary: My husband was pretty excited to receive this purchase in the mail, but that was short-lived once we opened the package. First off, the battery was 100% dead--most devices have at least a little bit of juice, but we figured a refurbished item may not. The charger port is very loose and will not acknowledge the charger unless you hold it in and carefully place it on a table so as not to jiggle it the slightest bit.

  • Summary: My Roadmate was a refurb model at a very good price. BUT ... although the original unit worked fine, the maps set was outdated, and so I quickly decided to take advantage of the free lifetime maps upgrades, and that is where the trouble started. During the upgrade process, the Magellan software refused to recognize the GPS unit, and told me to connect it to a USB port.
