Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM GPS Review

Gear Diary
12 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Smartphones and tablets are “category killers” that have decimated numerous standalone products. As I have written previously, from one perspective the iPhone and the iPad are like “Rorschach devices”.
  • Pros: Nice big screen; Great windshield mount; Always there and ready to go when you start the car; Nice Bluetooth speakerphone integration; Lifetime maps; Doesn’t take over your phone when navigating
  • Cons: Mushy screen with mediocre touch sensitivity; Audio quality good but not great; Phone-based solution much cheaper overall

  • Conclusion: Not only does the Magellan RoadMate 9055 portable GPS device pack a huge 7-inch screen, it's a solid performer on the road, and it's exceptionally easy to use.
  • Pros: Extra-large, 7-inch LCD. Very fast UI and POI search. Unusually flexible mount works in a wide variety of vehicles. Free lifetime traffic with no ads. Useful AAA TourBook. A/V input.
  • Cons: Chosen routes aren't always the quickest. No speed limit signs. Map updates cost extra. Its sheer size could be an issue in smaller vehicles.
