Excerpt: As a male member of the species, I am a little insulted by global positioning systems. I know my way around. I don’t need to ask for directions because I can’t get lost. Actually, that’s not true. I’m not too proud to rely on a GPS. This particular unit is great too. For one thing, it’s huge (for a GPS device anyway). In fact, it’s probably a little too big for use in my Honda Accord, but I do love the 7 inch screen.
Summary: In conclusion the Magellan RoadMate 9055 is a very nice product with a large easy to ready display and additional features like “Lifetime Traffic” which prompts you for all reported accidents. The only feature that set the Magellan RoadMate 9055 apart from its sister Magellan RoadMate 9050 is the Bluetooth speakerphone which we were not impressed with. So if we were to decide between the 9055 and the 9050, it would be for the 9050 for a lesser cost.
Excerpt: The Magellan RoadMate 9055 is one of several models offered by Magellan with a gigantic 7” screen, making it a good option for truckers and RVs. It comes with preloaded maps of the US and Canada, Bluetooth for hands free calling and lifetime traffic.
