RoadMate 5265T-LMB Don't bother with Magellan

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 I used it for a month and noticed a number of problems with map and traffic information being out-of-date.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

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.
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.
