Summary: Difficulty programing with too many frozen screens. The unit has poor memory and not as user friendly as the RoadMate 1700 which worked perfectly well for three plus years without a problem. The roadMate began showing signs of difficulty booting up approximately six months ago and subsequently failed completely approximately six weeks prior to my purchasing the RoadMate 9250T - LMB unit.
Summary: Edited to add: We ended up returning this. Some of its directions were very inaccurate. Aloo it turned out to lack some of the features we thought were standard. Hard to record an address manually entred. Cannot permently assign a manually eneterd speed limit. Lacks speed limit info for many of the highways around here. Hard to zoom in on an area to see the less major highways. --------------------------- First impression was 5 stars, now changing it to 2 stars.
Summary: I bought this unit to replace my older unit of the same i20em, this new unit will only load 2 multiple route, while the older will load as many as I want, plus it wait too long toTell you to make a left or right turn on secondary road(.20mile) that's my biggest problem, on major roads your caught in the wrong lane..
Massive screen fitted with probably a rusted 80286 processor

Summary: 80286 processor?! If you got that, then you are a nerd just like me. But enough about me... Let's look at the GPS. In this day and age, we are all spoiled and we all want instantaneous results. I don't think it's too unreasonable to ask that out of a brand new GPS unit. On Magellan's website, this one in particular was being described as a brand new model. "Awesome!" I thought. Surely it will be fast and loaded with the latest maps!! Wrong.
Summary: I have a Magellan RoadMate GPS. Two stars because the functionally of the unit is good. Only two because of the rest of this review. When I bought my RoadMate it came with lifetime map updates. Recently I have have been trying to update them. We use iMacs and MacBooks at our house and for work, I can run Windows, but only in a virtual machines. We do not have a "Windows native machine".
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: Im so frustrated by this GPS. I was so excited, the big screen, all these "features". Well lets get it straight half the features it touts you have to pay extra for every year, the map updates and map update I love except it cant find destinations that my garmin easily could find. That in itself is infuriating! And im not talking some random middle of nowhere place im talking HUGE massive resorts etc big tourist destinations, national and state parks etc.
