Summary: Aside from the bundled accessories, the 3050T and 3000T are the same unit. This GPS works as advertised, but it's disappointing for the number of ways Magellan could so easily have made it better but chose not to.
Summary: I bought the Magellan 3000t about 8 months ago and use it a fair amount with good results. When I saw new maps being released I ordered them via the Magellan Web Site. I received the DVD in 2 days and I expected to be wowed. I was but not the way you expect.
Summary: I have ZERO sense of direction so this has served it's purpose. It does have a bit of a delay when missing a turn and needed to recalculate. If your car is parked in a parking garage and then you pull out and want to use it right away...it has worked for me..
Summary: The screen and layout is great, only problem i have with the roadmate as if i use it when going somewhere over 100 miles it will lock up and i have to turn unit off and restart which can be a pain at times.
Summary: I waited and waited until the new one came out.. i got it on a monday and returned it the follwoing day. It was larger than the 800 series and locked up a couple time in one day. I will wait until the next design comes out.. Dont know when. Or I will take a closer look at the Garmin Nuvi.
