Outt'a the box - Troubles with its Content Manager . Adding addresses error issues. Still worth it - once the SW installs.

  • Summary: "T" = TRUCK-SIZE Dashboard MOUNT - May be awkward in YOUR car: This is an upgrade from a tiny 1200 roadmate. First: the "T" in the 9250T means it's sized for a TRUCK. Unboxed, the car mount is like having two long thing TV controllers attached at a hinge. At it's most collapsed position, plan for a space of at least 5 1/2" front to back; and 6 1/2 " high. I tried it in my SUV, I suspect that it's suction holder will keep in in place on the dashboard for a limited time.

Great Graphics but maps outdated.

K. Chambliss, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the unit and options but the maps even with the latest updates are older than my Magellan Maestro. At least the Maestro knew where my address was but not the Roadmate. other than that the unit is nice works faster than others and the options are worth it with much more choices. Bluetooth works Great! my wife has no trouble hearing me when I am traveling. Yes the bracket is bulky but it is a Big unit.

THIS model is NOT compatible with Mac

  • Summary: Packaging says it's compatible with both PC and Mac. Not THIS model. I connect it to my computer and turn GPS on. Display comes up "USB Connected. The USB has been connected to the unit. Please follow instructions from PC application for updating maps or software." Okay, so I go to Magellan website for instructions on how to update. It tells me I have to register my device.

Meh, so far

Keith Winston, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: I just got this, so this is preliminary. I also haven't had a dedicated GPS before, so I this is not really comparative, and so may not really be "fair". First, I'd agree with the "sluggish response" issue others have raised. Often I have to press buttons several times, or wait several seconds, to get it to respond.

User interface is awkward

Philip, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I chose this unit because it had Bluetooth, camera interface, and lifetime maps. All ow those things seem to work fine. I am disappointed in the camera image quality and navigating the user interface. I have use both TomToms and My Ford Factory GPS unit for years and all seem more intuitive to me. I got an unexpected surprise when synching my phone. It appears your phone contacts and GPS locations share the same database.

good features, but kinda unreliable

Tricia Mcreynolds "Meerkat", Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a 6 year old Mio GPS that eventually developed the fatal flaw of crashing once a day or so. I was interested in this GPS because of the lifetime maps, traffic, and bluetooth. I considered Garmin too, since a lot of people love them, but my wife's Garmin's incredibly slow POI search drives me up the wall...sometimes it takes 1 or even 2 minutes to show a nearby fast food place....something my Mio would do instantly.

  • Summary: Switched to this GPS after using a Garmin Nuvi 1490 for the last 5 years. Pros: Large, 7-inch touchscreen feels noticeably larger that standard 4 or 5 inch GPS models Unique wireless backup-camera support (sold separately) Includes lifetime free traffic and map updates Built-in traffic camera alerts Nice route customization flexibility (avoid specific roads, stay off/on highways, etc.
