Summary: I started with handheld units many years ago, migrated to Streets and Trips and finally decided to get a unit suitable for driving without a co-pilot. My first unit was the garmin nuvi 350 but since it didn't support routes or waypoints I switched to the 6000T. I've been disappointed.
Summary: It started out great. Everything worked as advertised. I purchased the unit new in November of 2006. About a month ago I noticed the touch screen would not always work. Next, the True view no longer worked when set on manual. Finally the unit does not work on the battery, only when plugged in.
Summary: As a gps the unit functions ok and acquires satellites reasonably quick, the level of street accuracy is ok too. However there are some annoyances, firstly you have to obtain an ac charger to get the firmware update which is highly recommended.
Summary: Good for the price I paid, but lacks sophistication. Has many flaws including an awkward power button and two top-mounted zoom buttons. They get pressed inadvertently any time you pick up the device. I like the bluetooth, but don't like the fact I have to pay [dearly] for map updates.
Summary: The Magellan 6000T is incredibly easy to learn and easy to use. It gives me confidence to go places that I otherwise would be uncomfortable trying to navigate, since I'm not great with a map. The downside: it locks up constantly, and sometimes re-setting it just doesn't happen.
Summary: So after reading every review on every GPS out there, I finally bought my Magellan 6000T and I was so excited when it came in the mail that I drove around my town late that night because I had to try it out. I totally admit that it is very intelligent and user friendly.
