Excerpt: The Magellan Maestro 4000 Navigation System is a useful navigating tool that is ideal for anyone who likes traveling. If you want to get to your desired destination via the most direct route than this is the GPS system for you. The Magellan provides alternate routes so multiple directions can be calculated. The system receives monthly updates so that you stay in touch with ongoing construction and newly created roads, highways, and interstates.
Perfect for my application, and a great value for the money here on ebay!

Summary: I just recently bought an older motorcycle, and my wife and I plan on touring with it. This unit has an earphone jack that I could connect to the intercom on my motorcycle. It is large enough to see the screen clearly, and still small enough to be mounted on the handlebars without looking like a monstrosity. Has a great line of features, and will stand up well to abuse.
Summary: Magellan offers good guidance to drive to a place and tell you exactly when to turn and where to turn, a feature that Garmin does not offer. The down side is not having free map upgrades. I keep using this brand for its precision.
Summary: I bought this for my folks last Christmas, and they love it. All in all, I think my Garmin is a little more user friendly, but this is a good little unit (and will actually do a few things mine won't). My parents are in their late 60s, and not the most tech-savy people in the world, and they got the hang of using it right away.
Summary: We ordered this Magellan maestro 4000 GPS for our Christmas travel. Delivery was fast. However the "NEW" unit we received turned out to be a demo unit, which goes into demonstration mode (playing commercial type of introduction video) automatically even during driving, our Christmas trips almost ruined by this. Thinking maybe we missed some important instruction, called Magellan CS and they confirmed it's a store demo unit. Contacted Amazon, and exchanged.
Summary: The unit itself is ok, other than the battery was completely dead on arrival. The real problem is I ordered a new unit, on sale directly from Amazon and I was sent a refurbished unit, with the previous users home address and destination addresses still in the memory of the GPS. I finally found the phone number for Amazon, which isn't easy. They should have sent me a new unit and picked up my refurbished unit.
Cons: The map that came with it was way out of date. When the update finally came out it was still way out of date. The first update in firmware caused the device to be inoperable. I guess it will make a nice door stop since there is no support.
Summary: i really sat,isfied with my GPS,everyting looks perfect.. the size,simple menu,and i like it,cause everything we got Magellan,its good brand and good price..also we got case & cover for that...
Summary: I just purchased the Magellan Maestro 4000 GPS, which I found refurbished, with everything included that a new one would have, for one third of the price. I found it very easy to operate, and very helpful on a recent trip from Portland to Eureka and back. I also use it for my work assignments, as I am sent to various different locations every week. I am now using less paper and ink for printing google maps.
