Just hope you never have to use the warranty!

R. Ivey, Amazon

  • Summary: I will start off by saying I did not purchase my unit through Amazon, rather a common discount-mart's .com storefront. My initial review posted to that site does not allow updates (now I know why). My refurb unit went south a week before the 90 day warranty ran out.

  • Summary: I have had 2 of these Magellan RoadMate GPS units in 18 months (exchanged the 1st one after 6 months).....the GPS works great 3-8 months if your lucky, then the problems begin.....non stop screen freezes, satellite disruption, and random black screens and shut downs...

Waste of Money.

Tim Clark, Amazon

  • Summary: Tried to do a map update and that rendered the unit unbootable. Magellan replaced with a refurbished unit - Gee thanks! Poor directions - was driving across NY and a 2 hour trip was listed as 3 hours and went hopelessly out of the way to get to my destination.

Lost

LL, Amazon

  • Summary: Do not buy Magellan. Software updates are impossible. It sends you on bizarre, circuitous routes, often in the opposite direction of where you need to go. You are better off with a paper map and directions from a stoned gas station clerk.

Ok for Freeways. Lost on backroads.

B. Armstrong, Amazon

  • Summary: Well, on the off chance that the GPS industry will consider my needs in the future, I offer this review. I bought this unit at Costco because I wanted something that would work where my Android phone does not have data signal.

  • Summary: I purchased a new unit from Fry's Electronics (in new original Magellan box). The unit died within 7 months. I called TS and discovered the unit was refurbished (Fry's does not sell refurb units). Evidently, Magellan had sold to Fry's a refurb unit as a new unit.

  • Summary: just threw a magellan explorist 110 in the trash, used it 3 times now it malfunctions in every way. Don't even try to call Magellan customer service, you sit on hold till you give up and hang up.

Works great! I like it much better than a Garmin ...

Tony Grant, Amazon

  • Summary: Works great! I like it much better than a Garmin GPS. If you somehow miss a turnoff the Magellan (Mags for short) will simply give you the next upcoming street to turn on, whereas the Garmin keeps saying "Recalculating, Recalculating, Recalculating" over and over and over again. Enough already.

Unit Ok, but directions are awful

Kindle Customer, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: If you want to get to anywhere, allow at least 20 extra minutes for the trip, because this Magellan GPS will not get you there on first try. House numbers are everytime on a wrong side of the street, and you will get also tired of "make a legal U-turn" phrase. Today, I exchanged it for Garmin.

G. H. Meraklis, Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: This is an outstanding product. The 2036 is a cut above Any comparable Garmin When you first get your unit you must follow the instruction. and might explain some of these terrible commits (This unit dose crazy things with low batteries) It freeze, it keeps looking for the satellite , It keeps...
