Summary: My Roadmate was a refurb model at a very good price. BUT ... although the original unit worked fine, the maps set was outdated, and so I quickly decided to take advantage of the free lifetime maps upgrades, and that is where the trouble started. During the upgrade process, the Magellan software refused to recognize the GPS unit, and told me to connect it to a USB port.
Summary: Purchased this refurbished unit to repace another magellan roadmate that is about 10 years old. My old unit works perfectly but I didn't want to pay $37.00 to up date the maps. So far the this one works as expected, great. Love the audible ding when to turn, great for eyes free driving along with the verbal directions & turns. The only negative was the case has alot of scratches which is not a big deal.
