BeatonNo1 Posted April 15, 2004 Share Posted April 15, 2004 I bought my Sportrack Map back in 2002 and my GPS has yet to fall apart, disintegrate, explode, or vaporize. Since then It has been dropped on rocks, dropped in creeks, thrown, sat in my car through the searing hot Texas summers, been in -9 degree weather up in Colorado. And yet through all this, the cracks have not spread much further than the depth of the screws. After first reading about this problem, I opened mine up so that I could see how deep the cracks penetrated into the plastic. The cracks on my GPS Do not even go as deep as the screw holes. I have also tried to pry my GPS apart to see if the plastic will fail and it did not. At this point I am not concerned with the cracks in my GPS. The only damage I see is aesthetical. The only reason I think that Magellan has not corrected this problem, is that they did not see it as a problem. I still think Magellan is an excellent company and the SporTrak line is a reliable GPS. To this day, I still recommend SporTrek GPSrs to friends. Quote Link to comment
