Summary: I love my Magellan this is my second one of this particular model and it's the only brand I would buy I've tried others and sent them back always easy to see directions are always precise and it's just a great product highly recommend it
Summary: The old one we use at work is a trouper! I love it and it is easy to use so when I decided to buy one for myself I got the Magellan. I was excited because it was big, the window mount worked great and it was clear to look at. What I didn't like was you needed to register and download and do all this hoop jumping to set it up and also be able to update it. I decided not to do that right away since everything was working fine.
Summary: Aside from some other comments from reviews I've read about the dim screen, small fonts, I was very disappointed with the performance of the speed features. There is a 5mph or more variability in speed measurement while cruising at a steady speed, even when mounted in the windshield with a clear view of the sky. This means that the speed limit alarm will go off intermittently if you are driving at the speed limit, even with a 5mph grace setting.
Summary: I bought this GPS as a backup where my phone signal does not work. The price is even less than Map Update itself. This is what you pay for. I can't believe some reputed company like Magellan can make something like this. You need to have lots of patience to use it. You click on something and wait for ever to get response. Want to enter address click on something and then wait starts, all of sudden multiple letters pop up. Extremely slow.
