Bad Experience

Greg K., Amazon
16 February 2014
  • 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.

Junk

Mike, Amazon

  • 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.

Starting to fail at 9 months

DML "DML", Amazon
15 September 2012
  • 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.

No wonder the price keeps falling it should drop to zero

The Z man "Frank Z.", Amazon
3 June 2012
  • 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.

Look elsewhere

WILLIAM G K, Amazon

  • 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.

Highly Disappointed with Magellan

CJJ, Amazon
9 March 2012
  • 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.

do not buy this unit

bobsled 46, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • 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.
