Eager to make travelling cross-country easier, my wife and I picked up a Magellan Maestro 4700 for our car. Upon receiving the device, I was excited to try it out. After making sure it was activated and up to date, I was immediately disappointed to learn that the Magellan Maestro 4700 lacked a number of points of interest in its database for my home town. Some of these points of interest had been in the town longer than my nearly 8 years of residency. To add insult to injury, after one of the initial firmware updates, the Magellan Maestro 4700 suffered from a chronic screen flicker on any screen other than the default map. This would have been an acceptable flaw, had it be limited to one uncommonly used sub-menu, but as it happened every time I went to enter an address or adjust a setting, it quickly became very bothersome. On trying to remediate the issue with Magellan, I was told to reset the device and reinstall the software. On doing so, the issue re-appeared consistently. Suffice it to say, we've moved on to another brand of GPS and have had no complaints since.
