Best Product and Deal Ever!
The only problem is that the voice is hard to understand.
Good product for the price
It's my first GPS but seems to be easy to operate and functions fine. The seven inch display is a real plus for easy viewing.
i have owned Magellan GPS units in the past and have used them throughout the states and this one is just as great as my latest 1440. This one is just as great as the others I've owned. The maps are accurate and the size is great. Thanks.
menus are nice. Large screen is nice. Maps and POIs are not accurate at all.
so so at best
I bought this GPS because I have use Magellan unis before and liked how they work, and the large screen didn't hurt. Having said that I have been disappointed with the unit for several reasons. The battery life sucks to put it plainly, I have tried to program the unit while in the house before a trip, only to turn it on and find the battery has drained itself, and it takes a loooong time to charge it. Second there is no free updates with Magellan so be prepared to pay a lot for them, and they are not very good from the start, I have entered several street names of people that I know, and the street name isn't in the unit, when I drive to the locations it has me on a differently named road?! Lastly it zooms in when you are coming up to a turn, which makes it very hard to see when you are supposed to turn. Very frustrating and confusing while you are driving:( On a positive note it allows you to find POI very easily.
