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: These products look nice and seem to have a lot of features and they make you all kinds of promises about how accurate they are and how the maps are updated every two years. Don't believe a word of it. These things are junk and Magellan will leave you high and dry. The routing is a joke. I've wasted so much time following these directions only to find out there was a much easier, quicker way. It's taken me in a complete circle for no apparent reason.
Summary: Wanted a cheap Sat Nav to use in the US for a hol -- and even sourced from ISA this was cheaper than an upgrade on my UK/Europe Sat Nav. Also having used Magellans in the US before - this was known territory - and this was excellent.
Summary: Purchased new January of 2008--used maybe twice a month. It was a dream come true--my first gps unit--loved it. We've babied it--never left it on the dash when not in use and took it inside when done using it. Now it's freezing up;routing us the wrong way--if gps units got dementia--this one has gotten it prematurely. Spent $250 new--just bought a new Garmin 265T for $88.00--NOT going to spend the big bucks again.
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: it's a great product and very accurate,it's the best birthday present i've ever given anyone...lol.now instead of me going with my best friend everywhere all she has to do is put in the address of her destination and go..she loves it...
Summary: The unit works very good although when new maps for the unit get released it cost $90 for the map upgrade. Firmware upgrades are free but the map upgrade cost almost as much as a new Unit. I actually broke the unit while upgrading the firmware but upon contacting Magellan they were very quick to fix the issue. I would buy a Magellan GPS again but personally I would never pay to upgrade the maps.
