  1. Purchased this unit before vacation and was thoroughly pleased with its performance and price [snip, see comment policy]. With the integrated RDS-TMC receiver I added NAVTEQ traffic subscription for $34/yr (w/AAA discount) and found several cases where it routed us around serious tie-ups, although it also recommended rerouting in two cases that were unnecessary. Very worthwhile!
    The Bluetooth works well, but car noise pickup limits intelligibility. The auto-night screen was reliable, but I would prefer a dimmer display.
    The small screen is very readable for its location near the left window post, and with text-to-speech there is less need to view the screen. Route recalculation, criticized by Cons. Rpts, was noticabably speeded with current software update.
    After using a (costly) Garmin 800 in a rental car for a week, I heartily recommend this unit.

  2. I must say that I was extremely disappointed with the Magellan. I spent a good amount of money on it and to find out that it always takes you the LONGEST way of getting to your destination regardless of what settings you have it on. It will take you in a complete circle before your turn. Also, the suction cup that they give you to mount on your windshield is not functional. Your GPS will fall, break, and your screen will crack. After this happened to us I called Magellan and the only solution they had was to return it to them and they would sell me a refurbished one for $150! Really? So they are going to fix mine, sell it to someone else as a refurbished one and make money off me and other consumers because they make a faulty mounting kit. I am very disappointed and have never had such poor service.
