DO NOT BUY FROM MAYLONG PRODUCTS!

Customer review by An anonymous customer

When I received this product, the screen would turn on but nothing would happen. I am currently in a war with their customer service because they refuse to acknowledge the products warranty. The woman actually had the audacity to tell me that the warranty was only valid from the time the product was made, not from when it was purchased. She told me that Walmart had no business selling such an old product (even though Amazon carries this exact same model as well) and that Maylong will not honor any warranty on a product more than a few years old. I am being forced to use my product replacement plan through Walmart to get a refund because Maylong will not take any responsibility for the faultiness of its products. Every time I have called back I have been either hung up on or sent to voicemail. Please be aware that if you buy from Maylong products they will be as honest as a politician in doing everything they can to keep from fulfilling their legal agreements.

At 34.98 I did not expect much. Since I hardly ever go anywhere that I need a GPS it has not been something I considered a priority unless I could find one dirt cheap. Definitely not a high end unit but it does seem to lock onto the satellite pretty quick. I am still getting use to how to use it and since I'm not electronics literate I figured one made for dummies was appropriate. I have only set a couple destination routes thus far. Seems to get hung up sometimes when running through the menu. This very well is due to my error and lack of knowledge. The only way I have been able to reset it is shut it down and start over. Once I finally get it on my route it works great. The speed limit warning is not accurate with posted speed limits and is just a nuisance. Just leave it off. All in all it's worth the $35.00 bucks I paid for it.

For 35$ this is a great little GPS. The screen is smaller than most GPS, but it is clear and bright and works just fine. One of my concerns was if it had turn by turn text, and it does..which I love so you can read and check where it wants to send you. Just go to manage route It also has an 'avoid' button if you do not want to go on a certain road/street. I think it does everything I need it to do. The maps are from 2009, so I know it may not always have the newest roads, but for the basic needs I have it will work just fine. I bought my sister one also and she has enjoyed it. It did have a glich it told us to turn left on EAST when it should of said left on WEST once, but we figured it out and went on our way just fine. We also have to laugh how it pronounces some names, for example Des Moines, Iowa is pronounced with the S's which is not the correct way to say them, but does not effect the directions..just made us laugh. It is a great basic GPS, and comes with the cords, and the brackets to mount it to your window, or dash. Also you can not pick your voice, I know the Tom Tom we had we could go online and pick all kinds of fun voices..this just comes with one..so, it is does not have many bells and whistles, but it will get you where you are going.

This was purchased for my birthday and we were so excited to use it on an upcoming road trip. Well the chargers that came with it didn't charge it, after having it plugged in for a week it wouldn't even turn on when it came time to use it! I had to use my camera charger in the van to get it to turn on. Then we had so much trouble inputting addresses because the thing interrupted you as you put in the address and began searching before you could finish. Of course it always came back with address not found because it wouldn't let you finish! Next it wouldn't stay on the dash and tipped out of any type of holder you used because it was top heavy. It was a total mess. 4 adults and we could not use it for our road trip and had to resort back to using our phone gps. It says it's for dummies, maybe we weren't dumb enough, I don't know, or maybe too dumb, but a GPS should not be this user unfriendly. It was a great gift idea but unfortunately the wrong GPS to buy.

I wanted a GPS to find places. I always seem to get lost on my own or from AAA directions. It was on sale for $34.95. You can't beat that. I was surprised how easy it was to learn to use. In a short time it was operating and sending me on my way to my destination. It talked to me move by move making it very easy. It even showed me a short cut I didn't know about. I am very happy with this product. It came with all the accessories I needed for mounting and operating. I found a couple things annoying, but nothing to complain about. I also recommend buying the extended warranty against droppage & breakage etc for only $4.00 more. Once again, I'm a happy Walmart customer!

With shipping to my house I paid about $37 which is amazing considering that it works just as well as my $ 400, Magellan of 6 years ago. There are limitations, it has a small screen which gets tough to see at an angle, and the menu is a bit awkward to work with. The trick is not to take this out, plug it in and go for a cross country ride, because you'll be disappointed. Instead, go to the car, plug it in, let it charge the battery, and then plod through the menu and set your features up. The non-changeable Lithium Battery is so-so, don't bet your life on it. but plugged in it works great. While it is very potable, it's so cheap I've gotten another one for a second car. How anybody made money on this is beyond me, twice the price would still be a deal.

I like the way the GPS works and sounds. Everything was great until I checked the date of the map. I purchased in July 2012 and the map installed is 2009. I called the toll free number and left a message--NO RESPONSE. I made contact online-- NO RESPONSE! Don't waste your time. Buy a GPS with free lifetime maps. The new GPS for Dummies is a good price but useless with old maps.
