Not the best maps

Bill, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Nice user interface but the maps are not as good as a Garmin. I tried to map to several rural locations and the Magellan's address book could not find them. I borrowed my sons Garmin and it had no problem mapping to the same addresses.

We'll see after pending repair

Amazon Customer "Red Morning", Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: I've been a Magellan fan, starting with the original Hertz Never Lost, and then the personal units, and now this. But there is a bit of a reliability issue, with all of them, they have all needed repair. This one is not even a month and a half old, and has to go back. But the design, and functionality is so much superior to the Tom Tom and Garmin units, even current models.

Died after 1 week

txtxun, Amazon

  • Summary: This was my first GPS. It lasted a whopping one week after very light usage and no abuse. I can only guess it was the cold weather of 33F outside that may have caused its demise. The traffic notes and points of interest are handy - it is like having the yellow pages, a traffic radio, road map all in one unit.

Almost perfect

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 January 2011
  • Summary: This is my 3rd Magellan...and while there are a few quirks with it...I still love it. To me Magellan has the best features. I have tried other GPS units and always come back to the Magellan. A few things I like: from the front screen I can click on the arrow and it will give me a turn by turn list of how it plans to take me. If I don't want to take a specific road, I can click on that road and tell it to find another option.

AAA, QWERTY, Intuitive ... but this units lacks in compatibility and build quality

Diana De Avila "MS Gkygrl", Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: The Magellan Roadmate 3065 is a great GPS unit that sports a QUERTY optional keyboard as well as a sensitive and bright touch screen. There are some pro's and con's that I thought were worth mentioning. Pro's: * The unit is gorgeous and boasts a large, colorful screen * The touch screen is sensitive and responsive to finger pressure * A QWERTY keyboard option (this is the default) * AAA Membership extras * Very intuitive controls and menus that allow you to classify...

"Poor quality control, buyer use caution"

bobd1021, CNET

  • Pros: Bells and whistles are good. I like the idea of bluetooth capability, the multi-destination routing w/route optimization, and traffic alerts.
  • Cons: The bluetooth sound quality was poor, stopped working. Traffic alerts are inaccurate.

  • Pros: screen Size, rich features ease of use
  • Cons: 1. ADS - they have to be kidding! 2. Long time to initialize locate itself (longer than other Magellans I've owned 3. Slow acting chip- it takes a long time for the unit to announce upcoming distances (again slower than previous Magellans)
