How exactly do they function in real time? I have only played around with one at work is why I ask. Did you get one with maps included?

Heres what I found with my 4350. The pros and cons :

1- Setup was pretty easy.

2- Windsheild mounting bracket holds well but could have been designed
to be a bit more flexible for more different mounting positions.

3- Re-routeing so far has been excellent.

4- Bluetooth was a bitch to set up and took forever. While search out my
Motorola Rizer Z3 to connect it froze up the GPS a dozen times.
After all was said and done I finally got it to work.

5- FM modulator through my stero in 2 vehicles makes the voice
commands sound tinny. Your best off using the 4350's speakers.

6- The 3D and 2D function works well. The 3D buildings have not
appeared as of yet. This may be due to the buildings not being tall
enough. I'm really not sure.

7- The traffic alert function still hasn't recieved any messages. This may
only work in bigger metro areas.

8- The display is bright and crisp.

9- The touch-screen is very sensitive to the touch. Tap buttons softly!

10- The SD card back-up works well, I use a 2 GHz chip.

11- Typing in info on the keyboard takes alittle getting use to, but once
you do it works well.

12- Search function whether on the Magellan hard drive or the AAA book
works well.

13- This unit does not come with a soft cover manual. Magellan supplies
you with a CD manual. THIS SUCKS! But! if you send them an e-mail
supposedly they will send you a soft cover manual..We shall see!

14- CD manual does not show you how to load music or videos. I'm still
trying to figure this out.

15- Navigation with the 4350 is easy and doesn't overload you with info
while driving.

16- The 4350 enables you to add or delete landmarks, historic, and other
info very well.

17- Accuracy of your location and movement is excellent.

18- The 4350 is very well built and a solid unit. The 4.3 inch screen is a
perfect size for navigation.

19- On full speaker volume the voice commands are a bit choppy.

20- Unit should display other interstate exits other than the one you turn off.
