'The new "50" series models also include TomTom's "IQ Routes," which calculates fastest routes and travel times based on historical data for road travel speeds rather than posted speed limits, and one of my favorites, Advanced Lane Guidance, which speaks and clearly displays the correct lane for your next turn on a multi-lane highway.'
'The touch screen is very responsive, and the large LCD makes data input a delight.'
'Points of Interest and Traffic Searching the 6 million–POI database is easy, but it can be time-consuming depending on how you do it.'
'Magellan Maestro 5310 interface

'new case design'
'Bluetooth compatibility was poor'
'The $400 Magellan Maestro 4250 and the $300 V7 Nav740 have much in common: slim, compact cases; bright, 4.3-inch color touch screens; detailed road maps for the United States; listings and locations for millions of services such as gas, lodgings, and (most crucial of all) coffee fill-up stations; and user interfaces that were fast and generally easy to use.'
