Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS


I picked up the new Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS at Best Buy the other day since i had about $175 in gift cards from graduation and they had it on sale for $250.  Kevin had come over the night before and was showing me the TomTom that he got, and I was pretty impressed by it.  After reading some reviews about it on Sunday, I decided to go with the Magellan.  I have used their GPS products before, and always had good experiences with them.  I was considering getting the TomTom but it was $50 more, and I found out the only extra features you are paying for are bluetooth traffic updates using your phones internet connection, and that it says the street names out loud.   That bluetooth service costs about $50 a year too, and I wasn’t interested in any of those extra things as long as it could get me from A-B so I went with the Magellan.  Turned out to be a great purchase.  I found a extremely in depth review over at GPS Magazine and they were pretty accurate.  I have already mapped out my entire trip to San Francisco next week, so I will put it through its paces and write more about it then.  Oh, and by the way, I’m going to San Francisco next week.  I’m attending a NetSuite training workshop for three days, it should be fun!  See ya.
