Great value for price. Ready to use out of the box with no complicated downloading for initial set up.

There are a lot of options for GPS these days. I decided my best bet for a quality unit would be to buy from one of the big 3 GPS names: Garmin, TomTom, or Magellan. I went with the Maestro 3250 because of the features, price, and above average reviews (gpsmagazine.com reviewed the 4250, which is the same but widescreen). Ratings (out of 5): Looks and size-5... take anywhere portability. Screen is just right for me. Navigation-4.5... routes so dest. is on right. Split screen for turns is very helpful. Voice guidance performs great. Can detour you around accidents and find gas/food at the next several exits. POI database-4.0... very comprehensive, but doesn't know everything(compared to google maps). Missed nearest bowling alley and fedex (these are not nearly as important as gas & food). AAA is neat feature, but requires you to access seperately from POI database. You'd think they would be together. Performance-4.0... Software is easy to use and responds fairly quickly. Occasionally will not turn on on first try is only problem. I have never had to reset as others have said. Features-4.5... loaded for price! Voice recognition is cool (not as good at highway speeds due to noise). Bluetooth works well. Traffic updates are handy, 3 month free subscription. Nightview really helps. I was a little nervous at first, because I've heard such great things about the Garmins, but this one does everything well for a fraction of the price. I am very happy with the 3250 so far.
