Magellan RoadMate 2200T review: Magellan RoadMate 2200T

 

Although it may seem that Garmin and TomTom get much of the GPS spotlight, Magellan is no slouch and has steadfastly produced its own line of solid in-car GPS devices. Today, the company announced its latest system, the Magellan RoadMate 2200T (along...

The Magellan RoadMate 2200T features a new, compact design and includes two handy tools, called SmartDetour and QuickSpell, for easier navigation. It also has an accurate receiver, text-to-speech functionality, music playback, and an image viewer.

The Magellan RoadMate 2200T was a little sluggish when switching between application screens.

The Magellan RoadMate 2200T packs some of the latest navigation features into a nice, sleek, and affordable package.

Magellan RoadMate 2200T Review

 

What a year it's been for Magellan! Several months ago they released the RoadMate 3000T, 3050T, and 6000T, only to discontinue the 3000T a few months later, and replace it with the RoadMate 2000 and 2200T. Oh, and along the way Magellan was acquired by...

Magellan Roademate 2200T

 

Does much of what much more expensive mobile GPS systems do

It works fine and for the money it is hard to beat ; It quickly re routes you if you make a wrong turn or choose a different route

A bit of distortion on the pronunciation of some street names

Astonishing bargain

 

Just gave this unit a workout around our suburban Atlanta area, purposely throwing it curveballs by deviating from suggested routes. It recalculated quickly and accurately, and did a good job on estimated times and distances. This is with firmware...

Text to voice ; Fast satellite acquisition ; Reasonable accuracy ; Price

Interface could be a little easier (but not bad) ; Included points of interest out of date

Very good GPS for the price

 

The text to speech functionality for this price is rare. The GPS interface is easy to use, and the directions it gives are very good. It's a solid piece: it has good battery life, decent display, and reads the names of the roads out to you, so that you...

It can sometimes take a a few minutes to figure out where you are, if you shut it down and restart it somewhere else
