Great...when it worked
17 May 2014
Summary: I have had the roadmate 3065 for a year and half. Loved it - touch screen was responsive, liked the voice directions & maps. It was all good until I tried to a couple weeks ago. It is pretty much bricked now. I get to the loading screen and it freezes. From what I have found online it is probably the fault of the content manager which Magellan requires for firmware or map updates, I can't find any way to downgrade or redo the upgrade, since content manager says it is up...
Summary: The devise is just the opposite of user friendly! Also, it has blown several fuses in our cars. Magellan didn't completely circumnavigate the globe, he died in the process -- so did this Magellan!
Summary: This is not exactly a review of the 3065T-LM, more a review of the Content Manager software, which makes "Lifetime Maps" mean "waiting a lifetime for maps." So far, whenever I try to log onto the Magellan servers using this software, in order to update the maps and unit software, I get a message that says "Server busy. Please try again.".
Summary: I'm a former Magellan user who switched to Navigon but was tempted back by this Unit due to the lifetime Traffic and traffic wakeup. This Unit has been an unnecessary headache. It didn't start out that way though. When I first received it I would have given it 4 stars. But after a firmware update a month ago the quality has gone down rapidly. And an email to Magellan's customer support has yet to be replied to although it's been several days.
Summary: I purchased this device several days ago. Key features that interested me were the spoken road name style directions, blue tooth, and the ability to make multi-stop trips. The gps works fine as a gps from one location to the next and is easy enough to use. However, the blue tooth function is only compatible with so many phones (by so many I mean mostly the Apple). I am able to pair my phone send and recieve calls and hear the person on the other line...
