The service was absolutely horrible

  • Summary: I purchased a refurbished Magellan RoadMate gps which worked great for about a week. One night the unit just froze so I returned it to replace it with another Magellan - same model. The second one was defected right out of the box. It never worked. You would think they would take extra care to make sure the product works, especially if it is the second time. They never returned any of my phone calls. I would never buy anything else from this company again.

  • Summary: This is the worst product ever...purchased it Feb. and within weeks it stopped working, we put in the destination and we would get a message saying route error, even on routes that were previously installed in the GPS and used before...we returned it and got another one and within weeks the same thing happened again. Now we can only get a partial refund for this jacked up product..

Magellan RoadMate 2035 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic

  • Summary: I bought this one brand new over a year ago (14 months ago), but last week the unit could not receive any satellite signal. I still can enter the address, but the gps won't provide any driving directions or updating the map screen. I expected it can last for a few years, but it didn't.

  • Summary: This device worked for the first week I had it, but broke shortly thereafter. Everytime I would press the touchscreen it makes this obnoxious hissing sound. Live and learn to not buy certain products on ebay.

Worst imaginable GPS unit

J. Bridges, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this unit mostly because of the name, thinking that Magellan was a reputable company. This unit is horrible; every time I've used it, it has taken me extremely out of the way, wasting my time, gas, and money. It is very hard to navigate, and to see the route the unit wants you to follow.

Not Helpful!

  • Summary: Got it home tried to use it around my town (ging to local store ect) Darn thing wanted to take in in the craziest ways. Would not even recaulate and get it right when I was sitting in the store's parking lot. It was dead set on me going all the way back to the orginal way it wanted me to go. When we used it for city location Down Town Houston it took us right along the out skits of a very rough part of town.

Disappointed

Donde, Amazon

  • Summary: The poor quality was evident in the cheap appearance right out of the box, ie light weight and very plastic feel. The unit locked up the first time I tried to use it and I couldn't get it unlocked. I was so happy that I purchased from Amazon as a phone call to them and a return authorization was emailed to me! I have a 5 yr. old Garmin that has always performed, but for new updated software they want almost the cost of a new unit.

My old Magellan was much better

  • Summary: Not sure why this GPS device is getting so much love in its reviews. My experience with this device has been far from spectacular. NAVIGATION For its core functionality, the device gets you from point A to point B and does a decent job estimating/recalculating the expected arrival time. However, in my area, it has tried to force me into highway express lanes when local lanes are a better option.
