As noted in my signature I own... actually 3... Garmin units. Love them all. I took advantage of the Amazon $179 deal yesterday for a new 4350. Like anything else... the reviews are mostly good but wanted to solicit some feedback from you guys and gals that actually have one and use it.
Can you long time Magellan fans give me some input... or maybe some of you folks who have switch from Garmin to Magellan... any regrets? I came real close to buying the 4350 when I bought my 255W a couple of months ago but they were out of stock... I have no regrets with the 255W. In fact... I love it. My plans are to give my wife my 255W and give my daughter her 200W.
Looking forward to some input.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
Installing poi's into a 4350-70 Magellan..
Magellan files must be in .kml format for the 4350
Step 1. Plug in your 4350 to your computer (USB) wait tell the computer sees it.
Step 2. If the Magellan folder doesn't pop up automatic, then go to My Computer and look for a folder called (TFAT)
Step 3. Double click on TFAT folder, then double click on Map Folder, then finally Poi Folder, that's where all your .kml files will go.
If you are you familiar with converting files to .kml? It's actually pretty easy. There's a program called poi edit and you can download it at www.poiedit.com. I have a better time downloading files in Tom Tom format and then changing them to .kml, less errors.
When you start poi edit, click on the X to get rid of the small start up screen, then go to Tools and Batch covert. In source directory click to locate where you download all your poi files. At the bottom of that window click for Tom Tom .ov2 in second window it shows where its going to go. At the bottom of that click for Google .kml, click covert and your done, file will be in C: Programs/Denote. Hope this helps.

Thanks Randall... I appreciate the instructions on adding custom POI's... and will use them!!!
Also need some input and advice on the Magellan 4350 as this is the first Magellan I have owned.
Can't think of any right now, there is an update out for the 4350, so I would get that right away, fixes a few problems.
Thanks!! I guess the best way to find out is just to play around with it like I have with my Nuvi's. It is like anything else... we have our favorites and are sometimes hesitate to change...
I received my 4350 on Wednesday and I have to say this is a pretty cool unit. Considering I own (3) Garmins and have been a pretty staunch Garmin user I wasn't sure how much I would like it. Also considering I owned a Navigon for one day and returned it for a Garmin. Don't think I am going to let my 4350 go.
Very user friendly... very accurate. In fact, while traveling, it seems a little more accurate than my Garmins. Will give it a couple of more weeks and give a complete review and my thoughts.
Everyone have a great and safe Memorial Day weekend!!
