Find your way home with the Magellan Maestro 4210

GPS units used to be pricey and hard to use. If you had a high-end BMW or Mercedes, they sometimes came with the car.  But now, GPS technology has come down in price and become super-easy to use.  And the Magellan Maestro 4210 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator is a great example.  This unit used to retail for $449.99.  But now, you can pick one up on Amazon for just $99.99!  They’ll even throw in free SuperSaver shipping.  For under a hundred bucks, you can drive around, safe in the knowledge that you will never get lost again.  And if you’re a guy, you don’t have to pull over at a gas station and ask for directions either.

The Magellan Maestro 4210 has all the features you want in a portable GPS unit. It features a large 4.3-inch color, touch-sensitive screen.  This, combined with an intuitive interface, allows you to navigate through the unit’s menus simply and easily.  You can punch in your destination by city, state, or zip code, browse through a list of points of interest that includes parks, banks, and restaurants, and even select nearby POIs based on your location.  The Magellan Maestro 4210 features AAA travel information, including trip planning, searchable TripBook information, Show Your Card and Save merchants, even AAA-approved vendors.  And finding a route is a snap.  You can even re-route to avoid traffic or plan your path to maximize freeways or surface streets.

The Magellan Maestro 4210 comes pre-loaded with maps of the US and Canada and over 6 million points of interest.  Using the supplied USB cord, you can hook your Magellan Maestro 4210 up to your computer and download more maps or customize the points of interest displayed.  It also features an address book, where you can store frequently used locations, including your home address.

The Magellan Maestro 4210 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator also comes with a car charger, a wall charger, a mount and adhesive for sticking to your dash, a suction-cup mount for sticking to your windshield, software CD, and quick-start guide.

At just .7-inches thick, the Magellan Maestro 4210 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator is one of the thinnest GPS units on the market.  Once it’s charged, you can easily slip it in a pocket and take it along on a bike ride or hike, making it more useful than larger units that are really only helpful in a vehicle.

Our Overall Rating — 9/10.  The Magellan Maestro 4210 is slim, small, easy to use, and best of all, cheap.  Our Recommendation — Buy one.  For $99.99 (and free shipping) you will have the peace of mind of knowing you’ll never get lost again.
