  • When you are saying a price of $250 we are expecting that to be new. We are still selling tons of the 3790 LMT for $399 but yours does not include life time map updates. So what? Even with my lifetime map subscription, I'm still WELL under $399. …
  • Update: Finally got a Garmin 3790t for $278 (factory refurb w/ 1 year warranty). Didn't quite hit my $250 price threshold, but close enough. I'll skip lunch out for a couple of days to make up. :lol: LOL, they are being sold for $220 refurbished…
  • Hi, I just bought a used Magellan CrossOverGPS. On Ebay, I also bought a windshield mount that claims it fits the CrossoverGPS. I has dual T-slot brackets. My GPS unit does not have this. Are there CrossOverGPS units WITH dual T-slot bracket mounts…
  • I have 0 power to our Road mate 760, have owned it since new, it worked on our first day of vacation than stopped and will not power up. I tried the cig adaptor and the usb power both threw the rental car cig lighter. I know the cig light was good a…
  • LOL, I paid $4,800 for a 486 computer and the ram memory was $50 per MB, I will sell that to you for $5 today. Problem with waiting is you are not utilizing the latest technology and you have to pay and pay for this privillage. The problem with thi…

  • Still waiting for that $225 3790t. Got the price watcher bot all set. :lol: I will by 10,000 at that price, how many are you buying? Um, just one for now. Prices are still just north of $300 last time I looked, though. 10K units? Really? Kno…

  • Here is the problem, as prices goes down, our jobs and smaller retailers goes away. No support cheap units that are disposable. Is that what we all really want. I guess we can take the money we save on our TV and GPS and help our unemployed kids out…
  • Then you'll have to hit the power button to shut it down. Your 1695 is correctly reading as powered, so there's nothing to indicate it should turn off. No accessories that use your aux power can tell whether the car is running or not AFAIK, just tha…
  • Hey there, Thanks for the link, but I already have that update. Is there anything available to bring my 760 up to 2010 maps? Sorry to say Magellan nolonger support these EOL products, they wish you to buy their new products but these older product…

  • Because I DO like to be helpful in providing information about Nuvis, I offer the following update to my originating post, regarding which Voice Commands are actually in the new 3790. The bad news is that I did NOT find this information in the onli…
  • They make map updates available for most of their devices, but I don't know why they didn't do it for all devices. Because they are not compile the same way, they have different methods and while Garmin can use the same updates on many of their devi…
  • You can almost buy a new unit with new maps for the price of any repairs so why bother with it? PND is getting cheaper and cheaper, so everyone got what they wanted a disposible GPS device under $100. How sad is that?
  • Magellan had a habit of setting up their updates so that they erased the old files first before updating instead of just over-writing. I don't know if they have changed that but it sounds like that is exactly what happened here. Agree! Have to recov…
  • I am really astonished as to how many early Maestro users have bricked their units and have been unable to get help from Magellan. Why isn't maggie.nav monitoring these posts and offering assistance? Ask Maggie, recovering is not easy and most of th…
  • Mexico Maps, I think Correct! :D
  • For those who wish to use a nuvi 3790, they have been available at Auto Nav 2000 for a week or more already!
  • Can you say tether Now you can share the fast 3G connection on your iPhone with your Mac or PC and connect to the Internet from just about anywhere — no Wi-Fi required. Tethering is not currently offered in the U.S. and some other countries. See y…
  • Thanks Warren, hope you had a good one too.
  • He should be checking in here fairly soon. :) Ok thanks. I have much experience with GPS--I guess reading is in order I would love to help if I could, but I can't in this case. I would recommend for you to possibly bid on this eBay ad http://cgi.e…

  • Hmmm, Magellan has some new stuff out but still no Maestro 4700 software update... it seems previous owners are stuck, even Pnd4me no longer talks about that release going to happen. Maybe it's accurate to assume they have now dropped that support e…
  • PND4ME, Sorry for no reply for a while, been busy. My replacement 1470 arrived yesterday with v2.20 software installed. AS for my updating the first 1470 from v1.12 to 2.22 software I did it as indicated in the instructions that came with the u…
  • Maybe you could give me a tip on saving a GPS coordinate location. When I tried to save one it always asked me to put in address information, but the only addresses that it would accept was those already in the address database. So that screws you f…
  • Yes, I will try that. Just got an email from them. What software did your replacement have on it, v 2.22? Do you get the shutting off to increase performance message on your unit? Cubby, I'm a beta tester for Magellan and would like to help you out…
  • You have a wonderful weekend also Maggie! Looking foreward to Magellan releasing th 3xxx and 5xxx PNDs!
  • Yeah I sent it to Megellan. Sucks that I had to pay to mail it. The damn thing is brand new and never been used. They will send me a refurbished unit. What a rip off. :x If it is brand new why didn't you take it back to the store you purchased i…
  • Great price and value, but it is not getting any traction for whatever reason, hard to find in the app store. Magellan needs more marketing dollars so people can find what they are looking for with Magellan products.
  • My 1700 uses between eight and eleven satellites any time I check and if it wouldn't lag, is very accurate in its position. My Navigon 5100 Max uses around eight satellites most of the time yet is right on the button in position, and lacks the lag …
  • I guess it just shows that they are supposedly working on it. Perhaps version 2.21 or later. My guess is V 2.21 is not fixing the issue either, maybe the one after that, or the one after that one...... :lol:
  • You are being sarcastic there? That would be unethical. LOL, I'm calling a spade a spade and that is how you can get around not paying for updates. Is it ethical? NO, but what do you call buying a product and returning it all the time because it is…
  • The strange thing is that my unit worked for a couple of weeks after going to 2.20 and then one day I turned it on and got the "circle of death". As I said before, I believe there is some kind of bug that is intrinsic in the operating system that o…
  • PND4ME can you comment ? I sent an e-mail to Magellan that tech knew nothing They will release when they fix the bugs everyone is so concern about. If we test and find bugs, do you guys wish them to release it with the bugs or have it fix? Hurry up …
  • I also have a MRM 1470. It bricked on me going from 1.05 to 2.05. I received a new unit. I have had no problem going from 2.05 to 2.12 and 2.12 to 2.2. Though I do not see any difference from 2.12 to 2.2. My wife wanted a Tom Tom from Costco. …
  • Release 6 is the latest on the maps. They have not been updated for several years. Even when they were new, they were old. I eventually went to a different unit in order to get new maps. I would not recommend paying $80 for maps that are several…
  • That is your opinion, and frankly I don't accept it. I believe if they reduced the number of models they produce every year and concentrated on improving their quality they would be better off. Obviously this is not the path they have chosen, and th…
  • The point is you should design a system that can recover after a hiccup in the download- it is not that hard to have a minimal system in ROM to do this. Magellan obviously doesn't think this is necessary. I do. I don't think they can afford it, tha…
  • Thre problem is not that bugs slip through, but that basically when they occur they put your unit in such a state that you have no ability to recover. I know that in almost all cases with Garmins, this does not happen. Yes there was the one time fo…
  • I really like Magellan units, but until they design a GPS that allows us to recover from these problems, which occur more and more frequently because of lack of sufficient beta testing, I will stay away. I lost two unit this way. Fortunately I just …
  • I recently went from 1.05 to 2.20. This morning I loaded an address into the unit. When I connected it in my car I got the tools screen up but couldn't select any icons. Turned it off and back on and I get the rotating circle of death. I'm disap…
  • Well, I'm one of those guys that pay for ComCast TV, ComCast internet service because is fast, AT&T full blown service for my iPhones, AT&T at home with 3 lines and I don't wish to pay for my iPad service if I get it because I think I'm payi…
  • I guess we will have to disagree. It makes no sense to me why someone who had "limited funds" and ditched DSL (typically only $19-$29/month) would have enough money for an iPhone, iPhone service, and an iPad. That seems like an odd and unlikely choi…
  • Tim I know people that is cancelling their DSL service at home and using their iPhone to get online with their laptops! It is not a bad idea if they have limited funds and paying for the service already. Not for everyone but will be sooner or lat…
  • AT&T has said they hope to offer iPhone tethering in the future, but you can expect it will come at an additional cost as it does with other tethering solutions they offer. The iPhone can already tether in other countries/carriers. But since AT&…
  • You guys don't think Apple may offer this tether feature so people with iPhone will not jail break their iPhones? I think this feature maybe added on this year update and it will be a nice addition when used with your iPad. It works well with a MAC…
  • You can't tether the iPhone to the iPad nor vice versa. WHY? I know that iPhone do not offer that feature now but I also know of people who jail break their iPhone and tether their iPhone with their MAC with no problem so my question is why can't it…
  • I think you can tether your iphone to your iPad and that would be a nice solution so you don't have to pay twice.
