Magellan Maestro review: Magellan Maestro


The Magellan Maestro 3100 has a simple and compact design, and it offers the navigation basics at an affordable price.

This Magellan GPS system froze on a couple of occasions, and route recalculations can sometimes be slow. It's also difficult to remove the device from the vehicle mount.

The Magellan Maestro 3100 is an affordable, simple, and basic portable navigation system for first-time buyers, but you can get better performance from other similar systems.

Overall, the Magellan Maestro 3100/3140 product is a bit of a disappointment; admittedly I had high hopes for this major re-design. The 3140 unit has the features; Text to speech, AAA information, broad map coverage, and some features like QuickSpell...

Magellan Maestro 3100 review

Magellan Maestro 3100 Review


Last month Magellan released the highly anticipated Maestro 4040 to mixed reviews. This month, Magellan has released the smaller, less expensive Maestro 3100. This 3.5" display, no-frills unit is aimed squarely at the budget-conscious consumer, and is...

Cheap. Basic. Better than Nothing.

The Maestro 3100 is the cheapest standalone satnav here, and it is reasonably impressive for the price.

Magellan - Maestro 3100


Magellan has chosen a very cautious specification for its entry-level Maestro 3100. The 3.5-inch touch screen has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, GPS lock is handled by the ubiquitous SiRF Star III chip and ...

It's a horrible expression but Magellan ticks all the boxes with its Maestro 3100 and at first glance it supplies every feature you could possible need at an incredibly low price. Take a second look and you'll see that you actually get a fairly basic...
