Summary: Garbage. My first gps and it has been a nightmare. Along with the issues others have listed here, min had such a delay between touching the screen and it actually registering, that I'd get so frustrated I'd just use my phone. I contacted them via email, but never a reply. My Tom Tom will be delivered Friday!
Summary: I purchased this before traveling to a state I was unfamiliar with. It was incredibly easy to set up, and very accurate in the turn by turn directions. You just plug it into the cigarette lighter, select the address and press go.
Summary: I included the part number for the $25 mounting bracket they are easy to find on sale as they always break. You get a mediocre GPS with a $25 time bomb. I just retired my Garmin after 5 years, the mounting bracket is still like new. If that is not enough you get plenty of advice to make a U turn when the U turn is only needed about 1% of the time.
Summary: This was absolutely the worst GPS I have ever used. When my old Garmin was stolen I thought I would just use my phone GPS when needed and it served me well. However, when we went to explore in a neighboring country, a standalone GPS was a must. Against my better judgement this Magellan was suggested by a staff member at my local electronics store. I had some concerns about moving away from Garmin but was assured Magellan uses the same map technology.
A REASONABLE PRICE RECEIVER WITH FREE TRAFFIC/MAP UPDATE !
