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: Unit was expensive enough I figured I would not have any problems....WRONG! Audio is messed up will not reset, makes a horrible scurshing noise prior to direction talk back, bluetooth is not worth using int. connects, its a shame. DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT ITS TERRIBLE!!
Summary: Purchesed in February 2011: Immediately called Magellan, maps in my area and several others in USA are messed up by as much as a mile: They promised the bad maps would be fixed in the next update cycle, the next quarter of 2011.
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.
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.
Summary: Purchased this unit to hook up their wireless back up camera, after trying 2 gps units and 2 back up cameras and purchasing a $30 cable from radio shack to troubleshoot the unit with 15 calls to their tech support (INDIA?
Summary: I have lived with this nav unit for 3 months now. First and foremost: CAUTION: Do not buy this unit if you're planning on mounting it on top of the dash or from the windshield glass. This unit is quite large and it will obstruct your view of the road.
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: 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.
