WoW now I know why so many 1* reviews..

Vance E. Dietz, Amazon

  • Summary: There should be a minus 5 star rating, a standard sine wave.. I played with this thing in the house a few days, and it seemed to be working OK.. We left on a 2week trip thru 9 states..

Hated it

Jenn C, Amazon

  • Summary: I will NEVER buy another magellan. We switched to Tom Tom within a month or 2 of buying this one. The directions were always late and delayed, and usually incorrect. The maps (even when updated) we rarely accurate.

Beware of this GPS

T. Hogan, Amazon
27 August 2009
  • Summary: Don't waste your money with this unit. There are no updated maps available nor will there be in the future. I bought this unit for over $600.00 in 2006. One map update was released in 2007 and that's the end, according to Magellan support.

Steer Away from Magellan

L. Alfieri, Amazon
13 September 2008
  • Summary: Had to give a rating so gave it 1 star - would have preferred to leave it at 0. The only thing worse than their product is their customer service. You won't be able to talk with anyone in the US. The 800 number is direct to India.

*NO* Customer Support

Bopien, Amazon
20 September 2007
  • Summary: Magellan customer service is nonexistent. The documentation packed with my unit says updates will be made available roughly every six months. I have had my Magellan 800 for nearly two years and not only has the company failed to make ANY updates available during that time, they gave me no response...

You get what you pay for....

Marcy Weiss, Amazon
11 January 2007
  • Summary: Something is very wrong with my system. Is it online and cheap because it's a reject? It gives me wrong directions, says that addresses don't exist, gives me altogether wrong addresses for the "Points of Interests", the battery doesn't seem to charge properly. I'm disappointed.

do not buy

smm "SMM", Amazon
16 December 2006
  • Summary: horrible unit. The processor is very slow, and always seems to be processing data when you need to make a turn. The maps are oudated and Mageelan will not do anything to help. New maps are going on sale in APril 05 2007, and will cost current owners at least $100.
