Great route optimization, lifetime maps, good traffic alerts (if your city bothers to broadcast it), failed after warranty.
5 May 2015
Summary: I loved this GPS, but the power adapter quit working a few months in. They said I would have to return the whole unit for 2 weeks, so I just used my old power adapter because I need a GPS everyday. It worked for a few more months - until it was out of warranty - then quit altogether.
Summary: works great when it works. I can't make it stay on more than an hour. after that it shuts itself down. I have tried all the different settings. I have replaced chargers....made sure the battery is charged when I start....i just can't rely on it for a long trip.
Summary: I am New York cab driver. I bought this unit for big & more visible.7 inch mean big font too,can't control the font size.font is like 3.5 in gps. Lot of big space on lcd is for nothing. Map accuracy is 80% correct.
Needed lots of work. The windshield mount is missing ...

Summary: Needed lots of work. The windshield mount is missing parts, they reship me an incorrect part, I tried to contact them but no reply. Map was old, battery died. I ordered new battery but it has not got to me as yet so i still do not know if it will work.
9055 is better than a book of maps and not as hard to use read the manual
9 November 2014
Summary: This is my second 9055 the worst first the save and load just will not work I use win7 the update has problems and the load for map updates is not good some times it gets lost and I must reset the stop adding a new stop to a many stop route / or removing a old one is not so good.
Second time around with Magellan GPS, and I'll do it again !!!!!!

Summary: My car is a later model vehicle, but the Magellan Roadmate 9055 brought me up to date: Now I have great GPS which I can see better now because it's larger, the good news, the Bluetooth is out of this world, it work better then my smart phone itself, and loud and clear, and Text, and has Traffic...
Summary: I bought this for the big display. It is big. I have always been a Garmin guy but decided to give Magellan a try. Here is a list of likes and dislikes Like 1. Size of display 2. Ease of Menu use 3. Range of devices to attach to the dash/window Dislikes 1. Not like Garmin 2.
