I think most Magellan users would be happy to PAY for a map update.....they just could GET one.
Well Garmin updates have come a long way and to keep their product competitive it's about time ( looks dream right now but may be a reality soon) Magellan has to comeup with more after-sale service to get to number one in GPS world.
If I get my reply and free Map update from Machellan I'll definatelly share the news with ya all, meanwhile any suggestions, questions, feedbacks !!!!! The problem you describe is not unique to Magellan.
There are only 2 "map companies" out there and neither is known for being anywhere close to up to date with new/changed secondary roads and city streets.
But the 5310 lacks certain features found on other models in its price range, and it suffers from some performance issues.
We’ve spent some quality time on the road with the Maestro 400, and here is what we think.
Along the left side of the Maestro is the power button, MMC/SD card slot, USB connector, and a hard reset switch. Along the right side is the headphone jack and the power connector.
We have adjusted the score to reflect our new findings.
Roomy 5-inch screens (up from the typical 3.5- and 4.3-inch LCDs) are coming to GPS navigation devices, and the Magellan Maestro 5310 is one of the first models to boast one.
