... Magellan Maestro 4200 4.3" Portable GPS. The Maestro was always my favorite recurring character on Seinfeld, so this one sounds like a great idea, doesn't it? But then again. The reviews you'll find say otherwise. Plus, I saw this same thing listed on Shopzilla for not much more than the woot price. PLUS, most people don't like Magellan's these days. It's all about Garmins.
