You get what you pay for?

goodstuff4ucathy, Ebay

  • Summary: Well the concept was good and I was excited to purchase this item. BUT! How many times have you said this? This is a dinosaur item and I knew I was taking a chance purchasing it. I have know reason to complain. I could have bought a new one for $20 more, but Im one of those people that holds on to the idea that the old stuff was better. And sometimes I think this is true. But not always.

Great gadget for being lost and found but cannot update

drap504, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought 2 for my wife and I to use. The more I used it the more features I found it had. If it was too bright and sunny, I would change the color and contrast of the screen. If I wanted to preprogram my route I would use the A/C adapter to use at home. The unit was simple to use and it also gave tutuorial instructions and diagnostics in the unit itself. The only drawback is we don't take enough trips to use 2 of them so I had to get rid of 1. So I put it in eBay.

Don't buy it!!

  • Summary: Let me share with you my experiences with the Magellan 700. I have used the Magellan 700 to get from point A to point B. When it works (actually powers on), it will do the job. However, so will just about every other NAV unit on the market. The problem is, when your unit fails (and ours did three times withing the first year), you will deal with the worst customer service on the planet! Our unit broke within 30 days of purchase.

OUTDATED map and EXPENSIVE map update. DISCONTINUED product. Costomer service sucks.

Liu, Amazon
27 March 2006
  • Summary: I got this unit about 20 days ago and I found the map was pretty outdated with many mistakes. The new magellan update is out and it will charge for 100 bucks. It really sucks to pay another 100 bucks for an update just after using the unit for 20 days. Besides this, this unit some times give wrong directions which does not make sense. YOU SHOULD NEVERN TRUST THIS UNIT 100%. Update 3/31: Customer service sucks.

  • Pros: Works very well -- when working
  • Cons: Loses GPS signal after shutoff and restart - takes a long time to find satellite connection -- if it even finds one at all.
