RoadMate 5265T-LMB Don't bother with Magellan

Phil Lyon "Enthusiast, geek, generalist", Amazon
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Roadmate 5265T-LMB I bought a refurbished model (not from Amazon) and it showed me everything I need to know about Magellan and it's GPS unit support. First, I wanted to register it to take advantage of the lifetime maps and traffic. On their website the registration attempt was that serial number could not be registered as it may have been registered previously.

  • Summary: Works great has a lot of information I like the speed warning. I have mine set 5 mile over and it make me adjust quickly to the change in the posted speed limits and I like the traffic warnings and being able to reroute with it.

  • Summary: Nice for the it being a factory refurbish ,it comes with a warranty . The only con is the unit take a bit to acquire the satelite after flying to NY it show my last location and it was a while before locking in. The view for the back up camera is not clear day or night. .so had to get a 7" monitor....The red light warning goes on where their are no red lights.

A few features I wish it would have, but really not bad when compared to the market.

  • Summary: Compared to other GPS's I've had, this one is actually not bad. Same complaints with this one as with many others, though. The screen is very difficult to see in the daytime. That's a big problem. Some sort of a cowl would be fantastic. I may try and make one myself. Screen is also very slow to react. Sometimes I don't know whether my click registered. As far as ETA, Google Maps beats it every time, down to the minute.

Test it in an area you're familiar with. Make sure it's updated.

  • Summary: My first GPS (a Magellan 3250) turned out to not be able to download updates. Nobody told me that. So, after contacting Magellan about it, their only suggestion was to "upgrade" to a newer one that could update. They told me about their "buy back program", that essentially requires me to send in my old GPS and get a rebate off a new one. After looking at the list, I thought the RoadMate 5265-T would be the best and least expensive model. Best of all, it could be updated.

  • Summary: I did a lot of research prior to purchasing the Roadmate 5265. The bluetooth feature is nice, but I haven't quite mastered it yet. Lifetime updates are definitely worth a little extra in the purchase price.

Software is good. Hardware is very bad.

J. Kan, Amazon

  • Summary: Software is good. Hardware is very bad. The GPS could freeze up anytime and could not be reset until the battery is drained. Very dangerous when you need to fumble your way on the freeway.
