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.

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
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 I used it for a month and noticed a number of problems with map and traffic information being out-of-date.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.

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.

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

JMA, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • 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.

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.
