I ordered a Magellan GPS 4250 at a price of $259.00 from their web site. I received a call 10 minutes later from a "sales rep" explaining that I had to purchase a 2gb SD card for $199 in order for the GPS to be updated, otherwise I would have to send the unit in to Magellan and it would take 4 months for them to update information on a yearly basis. I refused to purchase the SD card. The sales rep abruptly hung up. A couple of days later, I received an e-mail stating that they cancelled my order because there was a 6-8 week backorder. I then went to their web site and saw that the GPS was in-stock and available for shipment. I then called to place an order for the GPS and they verified that the had the GPS in stock "ready for shipment". However they pressed the issue to purchase the SD card at a discount rate of $119. I refused and am alerting everyone that this company is a scam. I finally ordered from Crutchfield.
