GPS - Magellan or Garmin

I have had both and ready to buy a new one, I liked the navigation of the Magellan but the Speed of the Garmin, i bought a magellan roadmate in 2005 and used it until 2008 then bought a Garmin, so im sure Magellan has faster start up and redirecting by now.

Any input from you guys on this, im thinking about the Magellan Roadmate 1700 or Maestro 4700, not sure on the Garmin though, the reviews i have been reading are saying the Garmins are freezing up alot.
