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: I bought this GPS for my mom, who continaully gets lost driving. She is not extremely tech savvy, yet she has really enjoyed this model. It is simple to use and perfect for people who don't want a unit with 50,000 features that are hard to understand. The price was very reasonable and it comes with everything you need--mount, car charger, A/C wall adapter.
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.
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.
