This review is from: MAGELLAN eXplorist 600 2.25" North America GPS
Was a great unit while it lasted.
Once I updated the firmware, it started getting extremely buggy.
Colors were off, lines in the screen, functions did not work.
Called tech support and had a hard time understanding them due to a thick accent. Sent the unit in and got another one back.
This one still didn't charge my battery.
When all was said and done, I sent the unit back about 4 times, and the darn thing still wouldn't charge the battery.
I went ahead and bought a new charger and new battery to be on the safe side.
It still doesn't work.
Oh, and it took 3 months for the charger to come in.
My biggest complaint is customer service. I called them 5 times and it was always the same. Communication was difficult due to outsourcing to regions who's primary language is not English. Be prepared to enunciate and ask "what did you say?" a lot.
I bought one from their leading competitor (Gar), updated the firmware and haven't look back.
