Magellan Maestro 4700 GPS Review

 

Magellan One Touch interface is handy ; Excellent POI handling with built-in AAA tour book ; Big, 4.7-inch screen

Voice-recognition feature is poorly implemented

This premium GPS device packs plenty of features, but you can find many of them on lower-cost products, too.

Magellan Maestro 4700

 

Responsive touch screen. Detailed voice prompts. Fast route recalculations. Handy "Find Your Car" feature helps you locate your vehicle in a crowded parking lot

Inconsistent voice recognition. Takes a long time to lock location. A little buggy

A slim and flexible navigation device, the Magellan Maestro 4700 features a big 4.7-inch screen and serves up clear and accurate turn-by-turn directions; forget about talking to it, though.

Review: Magellan Maestro 4700 GPS

 

This premium GPS device packs plenty of features, but you can find many of them on lower-cost products, too.

The Maestro 4700 has an impressive list of features. You get a larger-than-normal, 4.7-inch screen; maps for the United States (all 50 states), Canada, and Puerto Rico; a database of 6 million points of interest; highway-lane-assist signs;...

Magellan Maestro 4700

 

The Magellan Maestro 4700 has a 4.7 inch touchscreen, voice commands, Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use, lane guidance, 3D landmarks and AAA TourBook. In other words, it's loaded.

Stepping down to the Magelan Maestro 4370 you’ll drop to a 4.3″ screen and lose voice commands, but you'll gain the live traffic feature.

Magellan 4700 - Stop Giving Me the Runaround! ”

 

I bought the Magellan 4700 because the company was no longer updating maps for my beloved Maestro 4040. Gees.. You'd think the units would IMPROVE rather than take steps backwards.

Hi! I'm A Magellan GPS. I Seem To Be Lost

 

Magellan is no longer updating maps for my older model 4040 which is a real shame because it's a terrific GPS and far superior to this newer model I bought. Since I wanted up-to-date maps I needed a new GPS. I chose this new Magellan Maestro 4700...
