Summary: Works as it should, Unsure if it works any better than cheaper or more expensive units. I find programing much easier with typewriter keyboard lay out, as opposed to ABCDEFGHI... keyboard on the unit this one replaced..
Summary: I've been a Magellan user for several years - I have owned two of their GPS systems, and always appreciate how they have improved their products. This unit is my 3th, and replaces a old Magellan. After using it for a while I've confident in saying this is the best one yet!
Summary: I haven't had very good luck with Garmin's, I've had 2 break on me already. The one I currently have I can't update the maps even though I have Lifetime maps so .... I'm going back to a Magellan. I bought a Magellan Maestro 8 years ago, it's been dropped and pretty much gone through pretty much everything and it's still working. The 3030LM pretty much has all the features for my needs, hasn't gotten me lost yet.
Summary: The Magellan RoadMate is simple to use and easy to set. I love the fact that the voice t rerassures you that you are still on the right road when you are on the same road for a long time "Remain on the current road" It got us to Hunter Mountain in areas where there were no road signs. We would still be looking if "Mr Magellan" had not guiuided us t the right address..
Summary: The Magellan 3030 GPS Navigator seems to operate well. The mapset in the device seems to be reasonably current, and it recognizes even rather minor roads. The spoken turn orders are quite easy to understand, and the device is pleasantly easy to remove from my car and bring inside. The internal battery permits easy programming of destinations at home before I start somewhere.
