Only GPS device with Voice Recognition
This is the only GPS that has hands free capability. The Bluetooth connects to your phone so you can answer calls from your Magellan. It takes voice commands for adding a routes and finding POI's. It solves some of the contrast issues of previous models by having a night mode with different background and contrast colors. It has traffic alerts by default unlike the 4040 where it costs extra to enable the traffic service. The absolute coolest feature is that you can find your way back home from any location by saying 'Magellan, Go Home'. Of all the widesreen (4.3 inch) GPS units this has the best combination of value and features. For its price range it has the best set of features. Only drawbacks are price and mp3 playback. The Maestro does not play mp3 music files which is not what a GPS meant to be bought for and the cost of the device is higher than a good TomTom model.
