The Magellan is so much easy to see because of its much larger size. The menu is simple to navigate and it includes the AAA travel guide, which we have used in book form for years. Street names are presented in easy-to-read-at-a-glance fonts, for those of us who actually look at the GPS while driving. The screen is bright enough to be easily read, even through dark sunglasses. Also, I like the auto turn-to-night feature, which changes the screen colors to suit nighttime driving. And I love the big screen! I plan to buy a portable DVD player for my wife for Christmas and the Magellan will accept composite video from the player and give us two screens if we choose (but not while driving).
This is the same mount that was originally supplied with the unit, so it works (amazingly enough) just like the original. Portions of the rubber coating on the ball part of the original mount had come off, making the ball-and-socket of the mount loose and wobbly. The new mount fixed this. (I would have been very upset if it hadn't.) If you need a new mount and this one will fit your model, it will work fine.
