"Ok for short routes. Unit resets when the route is long"1.0 starson by ey_7355
Pros: I have 2 garmins Nuvi's and decided to try the RoadMate. It's a very nice unit. Good features and display. I very easy to enter addresses and find POI. I like the turn now bell.
Cons: Unit is useless on long routes because it reset's whenever you try to enter one. Not talking 1500 miles either. Sometimes just 35 miles resets the unit. Mfg is aware and was supposed to have a S/W fix by May. I updated my S/W mid Aug, still resets.
Summary: If they can fix the glitch it will be a decent unit. It does some things (not all) better than the garmin. I'd stay away from this unit until they get it working though. Check their website. http://www.magellangps.com/support/faqdetail.asp?faqid=654&prodid=2177
