Hi! You can compare the Magellan 300 with the 315 at the sites below, I found a Magellan 315 for $119.00 at an Academy Sporting Goods, it has 9 navigation screens, instead of 3, and has a tripmeter/odometer proximity and target notification alarms, altitude, and many other features like more user memory for very little more money than the new 300. It is a slightly scaled down version of the 315, like the 310 to get the price below 100 bucks at 99 dollars. The 300 has more battery life then the 315, I guess because its has to do less when operating. Be sure to click on the "specifications" page link at the top right for each unit:
I have some info on line about our 315 at: http://www.650motorcycles.com/GPS.html It is very versatile and we use it in the van, fishing, and on our motorcycle too. I am sure there are many other units with lots of great features but I am familiar with this one and it has worked perfectly for us, and it is our first. Bob Bertaut Sr.
