It worked right out of the box, finding the satellite signal within a minute. I immediately liked the large screen yet a reasonably thin design. I took it to the car, and found mounting it to the windshield was a snap. So far so good.
I used immediately used it on a trip to go from Washington DC to Winston-Salem NC. It worked perfectly in terms of directions heading both up and back. Here are the things I really liked:
- The lane directions were very helpful when navigating highway interchanges. The lane directions popped up well in advance to find the right lane
- The spelling fill in function is also helpful.
- I really liked the "closest gas" button on the map screen when you are driving. I used this to locate gas (and restrooms) and it worked flawlessly. I also liked using the one-touch menu to find rest stops, resturants, etc. The nice thing is that after arriving at the interim destination, the gps then asks you if you want to continue to your final destination. I also like that you can set up your own custom one touch destinations.
- AAA points of interest are seemingly limitless.
- I found the distances and directions to be very accurate. This is a big step up from the Roadmate 1412, which often put destinations on the wrong side of the road, or would deliver weird ways to get there.
-The maps are very well laid out and easy to read. Very simple to zoom in and out on a map, and switch to 3D or 2D maps.
- Volume seemed about right to me, even with road noise at 65+ miles per hour
- The Bluetooth synced with my iPhone relatively easily.Read more ›
Last week my old reliable 860 was unfortunately stolen from my car. So since I have had good luck with Magellan I started to look for a new GPS. First I purchased a RoadMate 1340 which looked good in the box but had a display that was unreadable in daylight; any daylight. Returned the 1340 and then purchased a Maestro 4700... then the fun began.
Positives: Nice display... AAA Tour Book... Clear and loud voice... mostly (not always accurate)... Ability to do multi-location routing... Basic voice commands... Bluetooth & Traffic neither of which I have used.
NEGATIVES: Constant RESTARTS: When certain locations are requested. The display reads "YOUR DEVICE NEEDS TO BE RESTARTED TO INCREASE PERFORMANCE, PLEASE WAIT WHILE YOUR DATA IS SAVED. And then the unit turns off and restarts. I have spoken with Magellan support several times in the past week and, at first, they claimed that they have had no problems before. Today they said that I should return the unit for repair. For example: I live in Connecticut and often drive to Florida, when I put in ANY address in Florida the unit restarts. This is also true for many cities in Georgia and South Carolina. If you need to go to Mobile, Alabama however no problem.
The in-putting of locations is done by Town or City not by State; so if you want to go to San Francisco and type that in you get to choose from every town in Mexico that has San Francisco in the name.Read more ›
We then took the same test trip with the Magellan that we took with the Garmin to Myrtle Beach. The Magellan had perfect routing on every trip we took whether it was for hundreds of miles or just ten miles. The route was consistent and took us the fastest way each time. The Magellan routing was so consistent that I would be willing to throw my map away if it could only overcome its two main problems (you can't hear it or see it). The Magellan wins hands down over the Garmin on routing.
There are not a lot of voice choices (2), and they are very hard to understand. I am pretty sure the woman must be stuffing her face with a giant sandwich as she's talking because she sounds like she's talking with her mouth completely full making it almost impossible to understand. She's loud, just not clear. To make matters worse, she puts in a lot of info that you don't really need and in the wrong order so its hard to pick out what you do need. For example - Instead of saying exit at exit 252 at I-40 W, she says exit at Rocky Point, West I-40 West, Ashton, 252. This may sound picky, but when you already can't understand her because she's apparently eating a giant sub, and you have no idea where Rocky point or Ashton are, it makes it harder to understand. If they want to put the town names in, fine, group it together, so you don't have to try to extract the info from the middle of her garbled sentence. The Garmin 755t had no problem with the voice or arrangement of the information.
