Summary: I have used Magellan GPS units in the past and had been very pleased with them. I bought this to replace a TomTom GPS that had quit working. Initially it was great. Sometimes the cities were different than the postal address which made things complicated, but overall not too bad.
Summary: This item is a piece of junk. Don't waste your money! The 1st 9055 lasted about 2 weeks. The replacement lasted about 3 months, now it has a short where the cord plugs into the unit. It has no way to change the GPS format. There is no way to enter GPS coordinates.
Summary: The unit will no longer communicate with ANY computer to get map updates. Started to have problem with it four months ago, had to reinstall Magellan software to get it to detect the unit. Now, it will not communicate with any of three PC's, two Windows 7 and one MAC OS X. Has to be the unit itself.
Summary: I really liked the premise of this unit.But there are alot of bugs that need working on. This unit doesn't work very well around here (N Georgia). It incorrectly numbers routes, has you turn in circles, and has absolutely no clue as to which is the fastest, or shortest route.I can look at a real...
Don't buy it without a LONG warranty from the selling (not manufacturing) company

Summary: Magellan 9055-LM GPS review: What's great about it: Love the size, and it is pretty easy to use What's not so great: Have not had one last more than about 6 weeks I can't believe there are not more reviews of this product. WARNING: Do NOT buy this without a warranty.
No wonder the price keeps falling it should drop to zero

Summary: I have had this item for 2 weeks now. The 3 stars are for the fact that the back up camera so far meets all expectations. The GPS still works but it is far short of what I had expected. I was spoiled by the Garmin Nuvi products I had used before.
Summary: I am waiting for my second replacement unit as the "bugs" seem to have won the war. This is my fourth Magellan product and my last. The tech support has been very good but the results have not.
Summary: First, let me say that Amazon did their best to take care of me. When the 1st Magellan 9055 LM would not work, Amazon replaced it almost immediately. When the Bluetooth Function on the 2nd Magellan did not work, I contacted Magellan directly and ask for help.
Summary: Purchase the latest GPS that Magellan offered with the big screen and optional Wireless Rear Camera (have not purchased yet and will not do now). Returning Magellan Road Mate 9055-LM GPS navigator back to Amazon for couple of reasons.
Summary: If I could have given this no stars or negative stars I would be happier. This unit is substandard in every way. They advertise it as having the ability to hook up a backup camera. They don't tell you that you must use their overpriced, underachieving backup camera ONLY.
