Two Bought, Both Quit after about 1 week.

skyhawk144, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I have bought two of these, the first one I didn't use immediately and when I finally did it quit after about a week. Was too late for warranty. Just accepted it was just my bad luck. Three weeks ago bought another one and it did the same thing. I liked the size and ease of use while it did work.

DO NOT BUY 9055LM!!!

Camille Key "camstuf", Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Out the of box maps database was outdated. Unit failed on 2013 maps database update and then would not turn on or communicate with computer. Car mount is big and bulky and fell off twice. (Customer support rep) CSR will waste a day of troubleshooting and then tell YOU to ship it to them for repair.

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.

Adequate unit - Terrible 'Customer Service'

L. Brown, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: The unit never functioned even after being charged and loading the Content Manager software to my computer. OK, so once in awhile a tech product fails. Calling their toll-free number for technical support / customer service was useless.

  • 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...

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.

works,BUT?

tlkflat, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this item even after reading about the reliability problems. I needed a large screen to use in my truck due to the distance to the windshield ( i also might be getting older)The screen is great , maps are good and the traffic alerts salved me several hours on the last trip thru Houston.
