Summary: This item is okay I guess. There are some things that I certainly don't like about it, but I was trying to keep the cost down when I decided to purchase a GPS. So, I can't really complain since I purposely went with the Magellan 3000T because it was less expensive than other brands.
Summary: Alot of the reviews I read here are misleading. Most of these complaints are related to not knowing how to use the GPS correctly. However certain problems do exist with the RoadMate 3000T / 3050T units. Here are some pros and cons I have observed. First, the Pros...
Summary: I bought this Magellan 3000T and took it still in the box on a vacation to Melbourne Fl. I read the directions on the plane and it seened very easy to set up. So I go and set it up in my rental car. I take out the power cord and it doesn't look right.
Summary: I purchased this several weeks ago and it works great but...I wanted to buy the external antenna. Tried to contact customer service but after many phone menu selections, I was informed by the system that no one was available to take the call. This happened several times over several days.

Summary: My wife and I have had the Magellan 3000T for over a year now. At first, we loved this device and it saved us a lot of trouble with poor directions. Since "upgrading" to the latest version of software, the device has been much less consistent.
Summary: We use this unit at work, and I take it around the country. When it works, it's right on. However, it takes some getting used to. The menus are not intuitive. The power on/off/powersave function is awkward. Sometimes system locks and you have to restart the system.
Summary: The best thing about the Magellean 3000T is the large screen. Sometimes this gadget works like a charm--other times it just seems to pay no attention. Actually, the touch screen function decides not to work. You can sit there and touch, rub, hammer; to no avail.
