Summary: I've been using my unit for about 2 years. It doesn't display the bad behavior that other people complain about, like freezing up or not turning on. But it has a couple of problems, one of which I would characterize as fatal: 1. It sometimes chooses silly routes.
Summary: I have a Magellan RoadMate GPS. Two stars because the functionally of the unit is good. Only two because of the rest of this review. When I bought my RoadMate it came with lifetime map updates. Recently I have have been trying to update them.
Summary: I bought this thru Amazon from the Price Pros. First unit was defective. I've got to hand it to Magellan, they spent days with me trying to get it working. It just wouldn't take an update. And Price Pros were wonderful about replacing it.
Summary: I bought a 3055 about a year ago. Only map update I got from Magellan was dated 12/2010 using map data that was at least 6 months old from that. I got Magellan to replace my unit as they have not created a map update since then (have created them for other of their units).
Summary: I tested this unit against Google Maps and the Tomtom XL340TM on ten locations for fastest time. The worst performance was from an Atlanta, GA suburb to Tallahassee, FL. The Roadmate had the distance at 399 miles, while the other two had it at 295 & 300 miles.
