    Magellan has the WORST customer service – Received a roadmate 1200 as a gift and it is useless in a car in the daylight as one can not see the screen. Magellan’s lack of customer service including their supervisory staff claim the unit is working as designed. i never had a garmin or tom-tom fail to work in sumlight – my advice – don’t buy a magellan even as a gift for anyone
