Summary: I have be using my Magellan 9250T-LMB Navigation for about a week now. This was a replacement for my TomTom 720Go. After a lot of research, I decided to buy this model. I have been using a Navigation device in my car for about eight years. So far, I like the 9250T. It has a 7" display and a unique suction cup mount. More on the mount later. The device is easy to set up and easy to use. It has all the features I was looking for.
So big and clunky you probably will laugh when you first see it. Or cry if you paid for it.

Summary: There's a reason so many GPS units are well over $250 or even $300... Because they aren't this one... One would hope it's a nice big screen. And it is big. But it is not nice. The unit is bulky, like some kind of sight gag about early early early cell phones. Really what this thing resembles is a big bulky GPS for toddlers. Or maybe those tablet computers made for kids. Big round edges...way too thick. Comically thick.
Summary: I am so happy, with my navigator, its the best I ever had. I will finally will never get lost again my fustrations with my old navigator are over, I have a new mini plasma tv lol. It is wonderfull to be able to se the letters on the screen and most of all to have the chime sounds that alerts me that I am close to my turn.
Summary: My 8 year old Garmin Nuvi is becoming a bit flaky, so I decided it was time to upgrade. I'm a field technician and rely on my GPS at least 5 times a day, everyday of the week. I noticed this model at a popular box store and the sale price seemed very good for all the features. I have to admit the huge size put me off and I decided to go home, read the reviews and think it over. Overall the reviews seemed ok so I went back later that day and bought one.
Summary: The Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB 7-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator, is really easy for these old eyes to see. The large screen just takes a glance to understand the road ahead. The overhead signs are displayed with the lanes you need to be in highlighted. As you get close to your turn, it switches to street view exactly what the road looks like. The landmark navigation is great, as it's easy to see the school, car wash, or whatever to turn at.
Summary: I had to send my first one back due to a faulty battery. Magellan replaced it on a two-way trade and the one I received has been working flawlessly. I recently went on a long road trip and it never burped. I love the Bluetooth integration but sometimes the phone does not connect automatically. I just tell to phone to connect and it does right away. I was able to download my contacts but text messaging through the device is still a work in progress.
Summary: When ordering it, I expected a 5" screen and was surprised then delighted with the 7" screen... just took some manipulation of the arm to get the right location. Found the functions much easier to "navigate" than my 3-year old unit, and better capabilities. Still discovering functions & capabilities that continue to add value.
Summary: Could have better directions for a first time user. Hard to find certain destinations if not sure what category. Once you learn how to get past the initial menu for a search, it puts up the address and gets you directly to your destination.
Pros: Tones when time to turn, screen splits and give clear view of turns.
