Summary: Lifetime maps updates? On what planet? Not on earth, and not even in the North American Continent. And don't bother writing an "email" asking for support. All you get is moronic computer replies. The website is as easy to navigate as downtown Honk Kong with a map in Chinese only.
Summary: Piece of junk. Works well until you download your first map update. Then it stops working!! No wonder Magellan offers "Lifetime Maps" because you only get to use it once. Doing what I should have done initially and getting a Garmin.
Summary: Apparently update is messed up. Unit has become sluggish and unresponsive. Takes over 2 minutes to return POI. Waiting to hear back from them. Seems this is not their best unit. lots of complaints.
Summary: This was our first GPS unit, and we owned it for just over a year. At first we were quite pleased. I did notice, as other reviewers complained that occasionally the Speed Limit data was incorrect, and occasionally it was not the most efficient directions, but by and large it got the job done so I...
Summary: Magellan 2120 T LM I just brought it back, there are so many things wrong with. it doesn't find Addresses in the Neighborhood. Planing a Trip, It send me 30 Miles farther and then send me back to Exit I intended. addresses witch are not in there Data base can not be reached.
Summary: The MAPS on ALL (yes, I tested ALL the latest units) are NOT up to date. Garmin uses NAVTEQ and TomTom uses TeleAtlas mapping software--I do not know who Magellan uses. But, I have taken this on roads over a year old and they simply do NOT appear. (And I have the LATEST update (2012)).
Summary: I bought this unit (as a second unit for my wife's car) based on a very good experience with an older model and all the advertised bells and whistles ... Pros: - Good bells and Whistles Cons: 1.
Summary: I received the Roadmate 2120T-LM as a gift this holiday season, and am concerned I may have received a defective unit. The first time I used it I encountered a myriad of problems. The unit that I have does not announce turns. It merely states street names, and not what the driver is supposed to do.
Summary: I got this from a local warehouse store on sale for $100, and am returning it one day later. I don't think I have ever hated a piece of technology as much as this thing. I went from an older Garmin GPS to this Magellan unit.
