Excellent navigation system
Pros: Fairly easy to use, functions as expected.
Cons: Out of box experience (no manual). Some features/commands are not intuitive.
This GPS unit does what I expect it to do, which is to make solo navigation easier. Read More at Epinions.com

GPS: Find your way? If there's a fork in the road you may be forked.
Pros: Large screen, Clear Map, the included AAA tourbook info
Cons: Can't always exactly pinpoint where you are. Audio sometimes difficult to understand.
I highly recommend this. Even with the downsides, I believe this is a terrific device. It's been a lifesaver a couple of times in the short time I've had it. Read More at Epinions.com

A great GPS that is worth the cost
Pros: Strong window mount, tons of POIs, no "frills", 2006 maps.
Cons: Poor tech support, some bluetooth phones not compatible
A good GPS, main flaws are with the company and not the actual device, no frills Read More at Epinions.com

A good choice, if probably not the BEST unit for the $$$
Pros: Good size, reliable, great brightness and visibility, simple to operate, usable text-to-speech
Cons: Extraneous Bluetooth features, sometimes reboots, may or may not calculate the "best" route
A reliable and functional GPS, with good visibility and understandable text-to-speech, for less than $280 (check on-line sources.) Mine has worked just fine for over 20 months. Read More at Epinions.com

Expensive, but easy to use
Pros: Easy to use right out of the box, voice navigation makes getting lost difficult.
Cons: Hefty price tag. Somewhat of a lag at times.
Magellan's Maestro 4050 is an all inclusive top of the line GPS receiver. If you demand the latest and greatest and any cost, you'll love the Maestro. Read More at Epinions.com

Compared 2 units side by side, and to Garmin Nuvi 360
Pros: "Exit poi's" ease of use, mounting hardeware, AAA tourbook,
Cons: Will get you "close enough" to your final destination.
Better than a Garmin Nuvi 360 and costs less! Routes you on more major roads less surface streets. Much better screen as it shows all the poi's on the screen. Read More at Epinions.com
