Magellan NAV 6500

I'm looking for an operable Magellan NAV 6500. Anyone out there have one that they retired and wish to part with? Al Frakes, Port Kent NY

Re: Magellan NAV 6500

My first Magellan GPS quit in the first hour, so I took it back to West Marne and got a new one, which quit in matter of months . I sent it back under warrantee, and got it fixed. It quit again, just after the warrantee ran out. An electronis repairman told me long ago never to buy a Magellan anything. Wish I had listened to him. l'll never buy another.

Brent: Given the infant mortality rate on electronic components I'm not surprised. The 1997 Magellan on my 73' E-27 has functioned flawlessly until this year. Just trying to replace what I have before I sell the boat. Al Frakes, Port Kent, NY
