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.

Poor support + bad software = Big waste of time

Billy Smith, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • 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 I used it for a month and noticed a number of problems with map and traffic information being out-of-date.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.

GPS failure with backup camera

Nicholas Harpenau, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Purchased new GPS specifically to work with backup camera. Camera did NOT transmit up to 45 feet as advertised. It cut in and out of video when camera/transmitter got 6 feet or greater away from the monitor. I was totally disappointed. I purchased a new GPS to work with this camera and had to return both for hopefully a full refund.

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.

magellan gps

HB/OT "love to read", Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this because is had a high rating from a source I trust. After loading the data onto the GPS via my computer I did a test drive in a familiar area. It was inaccurate with respect to street names, and other features such as the voice prompts were slow in coming at at times unclear. I logged on to Magellan's help desk. The contact people were not helpful. One was hard to understand, and the tech person said he needed access to my computer to help. UGH.

Do Not Buy This Unit. Pay attention to the poor reviews so you don't have to write one yourself.

JMA, Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: I got the first unit in a closed, sealed box for my wife for Christmas. We were surprised to open it and find there was no power cord included. Magellan eventually sent us a power cord. The wrong one, naturally. In the meantime, I was able to power it by using the power from the Magellan Wireless Backup camera I got at the same time once I got the camera installed. Once I finally got it powered, the unit would not find satellites.
