Does anyone have a Magellan Pioneer unit?? I have had this for about 3 years and I am wondering if there are accuracy problems with this unit??? Anyone else here of this problem??

One of my employees has this model, and he let me borrow it to play with. Using his Pioneer is what made me decide not to buy one, despite low prices on eBay. Its a sequential model, rather than a parallel receiver. What this means is that it can only talk to one satellite at a time, having to rotate between them. Parallel models have 12 receivers, so they can listen to 12 satellites at a time.

 

Sequential models are SLOW to lock in and prone to tracking errors. Buy a modern model with parallel recievers.
