  • Summary: Great product for the price. The graphics are not that pretty. I love the directions in highways which gives you a lane indication.
  • Pros: Traffic updates, camera locations, speed indication.
  • Cons: Database is not thorough and some items are not up to date.

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.

  • 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.

Poor support + bad software = Big waste of time

Billy Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit from COSTCO at Christmas. I used it for a month and noticed a number of problems with map and traffic information being out-of-date. In February, I tried to go online and update the software and maps using the Magellan Content Manager. I spent about a week and was never able to get it to download the updated info. The Magellan Tech Support was useless and just increased the amount of time I wasted.
