Summary: Im an over the road driver i bought this because it said it had a truck feature. You can program . in that yoyr in a truck but it does nothing to help try and program a fuel stop and it will list every gas station around it just does not have the the features im looking for
Summary: Nice size unit for rv. Trip router is great. Took a little while to apply poi's. Can't adjust on the run without difficulty. Levels are perfect for voice and lighting. For the first time across the country using the Magellan it was worth every penny.
Summary: Watch out! Ones your warranty is over, the quality of technical support goes down to drain. I own this unit with life time map upgrade for couple of years now. GPS itself started misbehaving recently and after connecting it to my laptop I couldn't do the latest map upgrade. When I called Magellan they informed me that my warranty is over and because of that the only support they can offer is via chat room or email! I will never buy another Magellan product again!!!

Summary: This stupid GPS has put me on so many bad roads and so many bad Addresses is just unbelievable.. I have tried to upgrade the maps and software... well guess what... it just as stupid as it was before... If anyone is thinking of owning one of these... call me and I will give you one heck of a deal... What a POS...I should have thrown it out he window the last time it left me in LaLa Land !! Stupid POS... Good luck to anyone who buys anything from Magellan.
Summary: This thing is a 7 inch GPS for RV's only. It is way to big for a regular car. The windshield attachment is big and for trucks and rv's only. Make sure you notice that this is not for regular cars. As far as the product itself, I didn't have any issues with it. The screen is nice and is easy to read. The maps for me worked well. I found the flow of the software to be harder than a Garmin GPS.
Summary: I've tried at least half a dozen different types of GPS units. I think this is my least favorite. After having it take me on a weird route, and loaning it to a friend and having it take her weird ways, I don't trust it at all. And really when it comes down to it, you need to trust a GPS. The unit just feels like a blown up version of an entry level unit. Thanks but this unit did not temp me to use it over my TomTom for even a second. Notes: - Very odd routes.
