Summary: Have had this item some time now Can't update maps any longer, but that is ok.Power cable plugs in enabling one to place the unit in various positions without the fear of damaging the plug. I place the unit on the seat and listen to it rather than watching the screen. The 4050 continues to serve me well!
Bought the update disk for $80 horrible service if you need call them.

Summary: I loved it until I had to get it "updated" I bought the disk and we never got it to work. Actually had my tech call Magellan to trouble shoot and they gave us nothing but grief. Use the one on your smart phone it works better and you don't have to pay for updates.
Summary: the unit is not currently programmed and did not have the necessary wire adapters to plug into the computer. I am sure that it functions but have discovered that its ability to search for common retailers is lacking as it is straight from the box. It also does not link to my cell phone. DKW..
