E222575 - Magellan RM2055T-LM 4.3" GPS with Lifetime Mapsand Traffic
It gets me where I need go!
I bought this product awhile back and had it for awhile now. I love it. It takes me where I need to go and love the additional features. Its definitley an upgrade from my last one. My tom-tom was stole from my car, that I loved so much, although it was probably time for an upgrade I came on here to look for a new one. I dont use it much, but when I do its great to have something to depend on when traveling with lots of cool features. I would say Tom-tom's and Magellan's are the best products.
The payments options were great!
I moved to Texas from California and this GPS has been a lifesaver! The maps seem a slight bit outdated and I'm trying to figure out the free lifetime maps but overall it's great!
this is my second one and like it. but seems to be a little slow when you first start it up. i figure it justs needs to boot up like a computor. but it does what it suppose to do.
Never Get Lost Again
This product is very easy to use, even for computer challenged. Plan on getting one for my daughter who is an on the road sales rep.
I RECIEVED THIS MAGELLAN GPS AT FIRST IT WAS GREAT BUT AFTER A COUPLES OF DAYS I COULD NOT KEEP A CONNECTION W/BLUE TOOTH THIS GPS WOULD FREEZE CONSTANTLY AND THE RE-ROUTING IS HORRIBLE
WORST PUCHASE I EVER MADE. I WILL BE RETURNING THIS ITEM
I should have read the reviews before I purchased!
The directions are fine, but the hands free bluetooth phone connection..NOT GOOD. I can hear others fine BUT they cannot hear me very well. I bought this for this feature and it was a let down. I am considering returning but I do need GPS for this vehicle.
A big help when on the open road....
After reading the reviews on this unit I'm really surprised.
I bought mine just before taking a 5 weeks 13 state trip this past summer. Not only did I not have any problems with it…. I had put my great niece and nephew (13 & 10) in charge of navigation. Both were able to master the unit without any problems at all. They used all the functions and had a ball “being in charge”.
I do have to say that it does take you the long way around at times, but when you’re in an unfamiliar place, it’s still a big help. I didn’t find it to be too out of the way, mostly just taking you straight through towns when there was a shortcut or bypass available. But then, if you see the shortcut, you can always go that way and the unit will re-calc with no problem.
I’m really glad I made the purchase and look forward to my next outing.
Thought it was a good deal on the t.v. with the free mapupdates, 3 yr warranty (as my garmin Nuvi 1300 decided to die on me on a trip to the east coast and 1.5 months out of waranty). It took me all around the mulberry bush when their was a shorter distance and quicker way to the freeway from my house. It took me the complete opposite direction only to bring me back where I could have gone in the 1st place.Then if you want a written direction, you need to go back to menu and hit the turn by turn then hit the arrow to (hopefully) get on the screen to where you want to go. There were times I was wondering why I was going up and down roads/freeways because at times the directions were not clear. I used the pedestrian part to go to a street a few blocks from my house and I went back and forth 4x because it kept looking like it was telling me to go in the opposite direction! I miss my Navigon! Garmin (I bought when my Navigon got stolen) has too many times where I was driving to a "coordinate" but it was easier to operate.
Sorry to return
Yes, I do have to return this because it would have been a gift for my daughter however I didn't know she had just purchased a newer type with voice commands. After reading other reviews, I've decided not to keep it for myself and get one like she has.
Save your money
I have had Megellan GPS in the past and they were the best. This one is the worst. It lasted about 20 minutes when I first used, it quit working. I was traveling alone and thankful that I had brand X still in the vehicle. What happened to the quality product the used to offer from Megellan? From the presentation I expected much and got nothing - save your money.
Really good unit for the price
"I have had this unit about three weeks now. I use it in my car and on my motorcycle. It's not waterproof so I keep it in a waterproof case while on my motorcycle. So far, I have not had the first negative issue with this unit. I registered and updated the maps right after I got it. It took about 45 minutes to update. The unit is easy to use and I really enjoy the traffic alert on this unit.
As long as you understand it's not the top of the line unit, this will serve you just fine. I would think it to be perfect for your kids going off to college or moving out for the first time. They can always press the "take me home" button to get back to Mom and Dad's house.
Overall, very good unit for the price. Lot of these features are not available on some of the higher price units."
This product was touted as "great" when it was sold on the air. One of the worst products I have ever purchased . We were about 400 miles from home the other day and really needed a good road map - this thing just froze up and it has stayed that way since.
What happened to the "Quality" standards here? There is no "Value" as we will have to purchases another GPS - and as for "Convenience" - this thing froze when we really needed it.
A lot of money wasted.
