Anyone have a Magellian? I'm thinking of buying one in the early a.m.
Walmart has one advertised for $99. I't a 4.5" hand held.
Good buy?? Good choice? Is tom-tom better?
We have a garmin Nuvi. We purchased it about 6 months ago. It is wonderful. I don't know antything about Magellian. My Dad has a TomTom and isn't real impressed with it.
my sister has a magellian and likes it. We have a garmin and it works for us we've had ours since last Christmas and it seems to be pretty accurate.
We have the bigger screen and i think that makes it much easier to use.
I do have gps on my phone and i like the garmin better, but i always have the phone with me. So tend to use that more.
We (3 of us) have tomtoms and are all on our second model (upgrades) and we all love them, haven't tried the others though.
We have had a Magellian for 2 1/2 years now and have had one firmware upgrade on it. My daughter also has a Magellian, it is her second as the first one was stolen from her vehicle.
To date we have been happy with it but have nothing to compare it to. My friend has borrowed it a couple of times and she likes it as well.
For $99 you really can't go wrong. Good luck!
Thanks all for your quick replies. I appreciate the input. Keep the info coming
Fil has a Garmin and we have used it a few times, his says what speed he is going and most of the time speed limit in that area, as well, it shows how heavy traffic is and you can get lists of resturants, gas stations, and hotels. he has never had any issues with it that I know of, like he did with the first one he had (it was something covered under they warrenty so he traded for the one he has now) I would would stick to a Garmin if dh and I get one.
$99 sounds like a great price but I would stick to an electronics store, they have better warrenty policies.
I taught gps to some local Sierra club memebrs for hiking and boating and I found the Garmin much easier to use.
I'd suggest going on line and reading the instruction manuals for the models you are reviewing.
Thank you ALL for the help.
The place that advertised the Malglin didn't have any
2 days later I found a Garmin for the same price and got it.
Haven't played w/it yet but will soon.
