Summary: I've had it one week and its already let me down twice. Earlier this week even though I'm programmed in at 13'8 it put on a road with a 12'8 bridge. Thankfully I was able to stop before wrecking. Today pulling doubles it directed me into a turn only trailer could make. Took me over an hour to unhook, maneuver the trailers, and rehook in a major intersection.
Summary: first off the product is a pain to update. not very user friendly with downloading the program and getting things set up with Magellan. then after finally updating the maps the first time I used the gps it routed me under a 11 foot bridge. I tried to get information from Magellan about the issue and got a single email back of basically' oops sorry we will make sure that bridge is added to the programming' even after three weeks they still hadn't contacted me with a fix...
and DOES NOT "recalculate" the route if you know better, and take your own shorter trusted route

Summary: I thought this would be a welcomed tool for Nav. as I truck around the country. NOT ! This thing puts you into restricted residential streets, takes the LONG way around more times than not, and DOES NOT "recalculate" the route if you know better, and take your own shorter trusted route. Rather, it will just keep telling you to make a "Legal U Turn" for the next half hour while you are 30 miles from where it wanted you to turn. Crap. Can't be trusted.
Summary: I pull a trailer and have a navigation built into my pickup. Many times this navigation tries to put me on parkways and gets me lost. We have used the Magellan RoadMate for two weeks now and we love it. Perfect navigation, easy to use and syncs with my iphone for hands free calling. Thankyou!!!
Summary: My Hubby has another brand that's supposed to be the best but it that messes up all the time. You never know if you'll get to the right place or not. THIS ONE though has never missed the mark. Gets us to everywhere we need to go without fail. Love it! Would recommend this one to everyone.
