Jimta1, Amazon

  • Summary: This GPS has features we didn't have before, but it is so slow that we have passed the intersection before the display gets there. Also, it keeps telling us that there are red light cameras ahead after we have turned off the road. Sometimes letters take so long to enter that we press the letter again, then we finally get 2 or 3 letters and have to delete.

Kindle Customer, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: Disappointed in the maps one street near where I live isn't showing up at all and I have lived here 9 years and that street has been here longer than that. You would think if it shows up on google it would show up on this. Plus ran into an area that the speed limnit was wrong and it kept beeping at me that I was going to fast it showed 25 and the speed was 55.

Ok for price.

gEExr, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: We bought this to compare with a more expensive Garmin 2595LMT. Magellan detects the signal much slower than Garmin, and also gives worse lane guidance and advanced warning. It does have suggested speed limit (Garmin does not), which is quite useful.

  • Summary: This unit works well in normal conditions. Sometime will have problem re-routing-slow response. Does not detect red lights camera until you almost cross the lights..in this case it does not help.

SLOW RESPONSE

R. Henderson "fixers212", Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: This unit is OK but the response time is slow. It drives you crazy. I may have to return it or go to Magellan for help or warranty replacement. I've had Magellan before and it worked well. This time I'm not sure I will keep this. I replaced Garmin with this and I don't remember having problems like this...

Just ok

Robert G. Oconnor, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: Very slow when recalculating route. Has sent me the long way several times while my old unit a Magellan, was always right on target. When you put in a zip code it gives you several options that make little sense.

Not Exceptional

ADS, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: It more or less gets the job done but maps are horribly incomplete. It doesn't even allow for my home address although this subdivision has been around more than a decade. Routings seem accurate enough for what it creates however, what it creates may not be the best routings and the system doesn't seem ready to recalculate if there is a change to what the unit calls for. It eventually gets there after insistance that the original route needs to be used.
