Not the best maps
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.
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.
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.
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

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...

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)
