Magellan RodeMate 6000T (purchased used)

mactool63, Ebay
30 November 2010
  • Summary: Applications in this model are straightforward. Easy connect directly cell phone with Bluetooth options. This model uses a "Key" number that needs to match the "Key" number put in the cell phone's Bluetooth option. KISS (I used number ( One ) which did the job. The unit locates itself GPS easily but since my unit tested came from Denver, it boots up thinking it is still in Denver, I am in South Carolina. No big deal! Quality?

last year's technology

  • Summary: Good for the price I paid, but lacks sophistication. Has many flaws including an awkward power button and two top-mounted zoom buttons. They get pressed inadvertently any time you pick up the device. I like the bluetooth, but don't like the fact I have to pay [dearly] for map updates. Directions are close but wrong many times, telling me I have arrived at my destination on the right when it is on my left. I find it difficult to void a route to begin a another.

Magellan Tech Support- Not worth buying GPS

  • Summary: If you get a unit that works you will love it! If yours does not work it's likely you will fall into to the Magellan Technical Support abyss.
  • Pros: Easy to use and read. Mostly accurate.
  • Cons: Tech support is horrible.

Safe and Free

R. Bell "Prizepatrol", Amazon
15 February 2007
  • Summary: ***UPDATE*** This unit became mostly unusable after 3 years of use. The touchpad no longer works and the internal battery loses all memory unless it remains plugged into the car. I now use my Android Incredible phone with Google Maps for navigation and do not expect to ever purchase a GPS unit again. ***END OF UPDATE*** I did a lot of research before I bought this unit from Amazon.

Not good enough for the price

P. Graham, Amazon

  • Summary: I started with handheld units many years ago, migrated to Streets and Trips and finally decided to get a unit suitable for driving without a co-pilot. My first unit was the garmin nuvi 350 but since it didn't support routes or waypoints I switched to the 6000T. I've been disappointed. The size, quality of the graphics, the voice and general ease of use (ergonomics) are inferior to the nuvi (e.g.
