Summary: I bought one of these new about 8 years ago and loved it . So when it failed a few years ago I went to Ebay to find a replacement , with mixed results . these units are now old and having problems and most of them on here are broken in some way . some freeze , some go off when you hit a bump , some have no sound . I have around 9 now with only 2 working .
Summary: This GPS is simply fantastic. Advantage: 1. Reasonable prise. 2. Easy to use. 3. 99% accurate positioning. 4. Easy re routing in few seconds, if you miss the correct route. 5. No special map upload necessary for US. Disadvantage: 1. Sometimes displaying street name is different than actual street name ( I faced this problem in Scaramento, CA).
Summary: I haven't tried the Garmin yet so this is a stand alone review of the Magellan Roadmate 360. This is the first portable I have used. I am familiar with the Toyota NAV system in my truck. I was able to start using it with the basic manual provided in the package. I didn't have to read the full manual on the CD ROM. I found it to be slightly slower to respond. One big drawback when entering addresses is that you have to enter the street first as opposed to the city.
Summary: i like it... but it gets confusing in big cities.... and it doesnt always take "oneway" streets into consideration.. you may miss the mark by a little at first but it'll get you there one way or an other. perfect for suburbia, but not down town boston.
