Summary: I purchased this GPS approximately two years ago and have had to replace the 12V electrical cord and the back plane mount device already. I use the device while on vacation. Total times used while on maybe three dozen times. The external electrical connections are not very rugged.
Summary: This is an old unit. It's big. The operating system is slow. It will freeze every once in a while. Magellan is TERRIBLE about their map updating. Magellan has TERRIBLE offshore customer support.
