Summary: I've had this GPS for quite a while now and I hesitated in writing a review, hoping that maybe I missed something, or needed to download a patch or needed to do something! I really wanted to like this GPS, it looked so good on paper and I have a lot of respect for the Magellan brand.
Summary: Awhile back I wrote a review for a sister product and although I gave it a four star review it wasn't without its faults. On this later reiteration of the same line of products you would imagine that they would work on improving the the negatives to create a superior product.
Summary: I bought this item due to reviews in a hunting magazine and for the seeming good price of the vendor. When I received it, it would not work properly at all. There was not a single function that operated properly.
Was really excited but it quickly turned to frustration

Summary: I loved the idea of an ultra-rugged GPS that could take some abuse and still offer top of the line features. However, the problems began as soon as I got it out of the box. I'm a pretty tech-savvy guy, but the interface is not intuitive at all.
Summary: Magellan, you need to get your act together. First you taunt us with the long and repeatedly delayed release of this "ultra" handheld GPS . Then you insult our intelligence with your useless, uninformed "Tech Support Staff".
