My previous GPS, a Mio c220, offered more features: 3D view, multiple voice choices, one touch muting, plus others. It suffered from typical GPS faults: slow satellite acquisition, occasional map errors and non-optimal routes; anomalies I expect of all brands (yes - even Garmin). But I upgraded to this Magellan for two reasons: my aging eyes need the larger screen, 4.3" vs 3.5", and the text-to-speech is handy. Canadian maps would have been nice, but I assume I would get those in more expensive models (I forgot to check).
Likewise, I did not need Bluetooth, music or video - if you want those, check out the higher end models. This feels like a Garmin, solid, but not a lot for the money. That's ok, if it lasts. My Mio died after a year, while this unit has only been in service for a week. I have my fingers crossed. In Sum: few frills, but it does what I need, for a $100, on sale.
