    I received a Magellan Car Kit Review Unit today and I will upload pictures later today and a proper review within the next week

    Photos Here

    Looks 9.5/10
    The mount looks great and packs a lot of features into a small package
    Functions 9/10
    Gps booster/Gps for iPod touch, charger, handsfree calling, speaker, mounting kit, supports cases on your device
    Ease or use 9/10
    The mount sometimes shows a message saying that this device is not compatible with iPhone but Bluetooth is really easy to setup
    Value 8.5/10
    $130 for a mount without GPS software is a lot to pay when there are standalone gps units for that much, the tomtom mount is $10 less but the incompatibility with cases gets very annoying after a while

    Overall 9/10
    The mount makes you iPhone GPS on par with standalone units but some might not like the $130 price tag
