The worse one!!!!

Vo Hai, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: All complains were rights! I almost got accidents because of it! Not worth it :( This is my second units. I didn't know when I asked them to replace with the same one, but they offered me with a different one! I have not tried to accept any. Still worried!

"WORTHLESS TO ME - WON'T PROGRAM TO GO TO NATIONAL PARKS"

WMJBUTLER, CNET
17 September 2013
  • Pros: LOOKS NICE
  • Cons: NOT ONLY CAN I NOT PROGRAM THIS TO GO TO THE NATIONAL PARKS LISTED BELOW, NEITHER CAN MAGELLAN CUSTOMER HELP - THEY JUST GAVE UP ON ME AND TOLD ME TO REPORT IT ON THEIR SITE. THEY SAID THAT MAYBE THEIR MAP SUPPLIER WILL UPDATE IT ON THE NEXT REVISION

Last Magellan

M. A. Rivadeneira "Birds", Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: This is the 3rd Magellan I purchase. They've been all lemons for one reason or other. This one also has its issues. Too bad because when it works, I like it.

Big Screen, lots of features, fun to use

arebelheart16, Ebay
6 May 2013
  • Summary: The only thing i dont like about my gps is that it takes a minute out in the boonies to get on a road… youre out in the middle of nowhere for a couple minutes before it zeros you into a road. and sometimes the nighttime driving feature doesnt turn on. but other then that its lovely!

The Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM is My Favorite Traveling Buddy!

J. B. Hoyos, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: The first thing I did upon receiving my Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM GPS Navigator was charge it using its own micro USB charging cord. Instead of connecting it to my PC, I connected it to my Philips SPS6038A/17 Home Charging Station ( Philips SPS6038A/17 Home Charging Station ). It takes approximately four hours for initial charging. Next, I easily downloaded the free Content Manager and registered my Magellan GPS.

Great Product Misunderstood

Colorado Bob, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: I read every review on just about every site about this product before I bought it. This is a great unit. WIFI is simple to set up not hard! The touch screen is just fine. The screen is awesome 100% VGA not 1/4. It's fast accurate and love the live traffic and how it works to re route you. It shows how much time you would save if you used the alt route. The browser display is not Hi Res but you can search the internet for a location and tap to go there.

Junk

dave Colonna, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: This was my third Magellan. By far I felt ripped off by a subpar product. Not only cant it find my house it can't find its way accross the street. I was so angry over a bad purchase I made. I put it in the garbage.

A worthless piece of crap!!!

KEVIN HENDERSON, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: This item was a complete waste of money!! It takes to long to power up, acquire a signal (even with a direct line of sight!) and the touchscreen has some latency issues. I normally get tired of waiting and use the mapquest app I have on my Iphone. (It comes up in a matter of seconds) I have yet to figure out how to get the lifetime map updates. I'm pretty tech saavy and this one has me stumped. If you need a GPS at a comparable price go with the tomtom brand.

Useless, hard to set, battery life awful

MADbookshelf "dodgema", Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift (ordered from Amazon) and have yet to get the hang of it. It's not the first GPS I've owned, but definitely the worst. 1. The battery life is virtually non-existent. And once charged it decharges within days when not used. 2. It didn't come with a AC adapter charger and there was no info with the unit or on line as to the specs, so had to guess. 3. The touch screen is not sensitive.

Magellan RoadMate GPS

taelow, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: This GPS unit does its job for the most part, and it seems to be user friendly. My only complaints are that sometimes it can be unresponsive (i.e. not show that your turn is coming up until you've already passed it) and the information in it's TourGuide feature is somewhat outdated- I've tried to find multiple restaraunts/attractions with it, only to find out the establishment has been closed.
