You can't get there from here
on October 22, 2013
I was given this product as a gift, now being grateful I was thankful the this present, however, I have recently learned that the maps haven't been updated since 2010, and there are many roads that I travel on that don't exist according to this little device. I have tried everything to update this device as I was really looking forward to not having to use my phone for directions while I was on the road. It takes a long time for this device to adjust to where you are now at this given moment so many of the turns I needed to make were passed by, especially when getting into the downtown metropolitan areas. I must admit that I am thankful for the thoughtfulness of the gift, but this is a re-gift item or donate item, as my phone works twice as fast and does a much better job than this device. Although printing maps from mapquest or googlemaps isn't always an option, they will at least get you to your destination, where this devise leaves you, "updating". Save your money, use the money you would have spent to upgrade your phone. I wouldn't rely on this device to get you where you wanted to go unless you knew already where you were going. I know Magellan has many new products out and I would imagine they are updated and well worth the money, but buying this one is outdated, spend the extra and get a current one.
