Excellent Value


Did as the instructions directed, and charged it up for at least 4 hours before attempting to turn it on for the first time, and no problems..... Opportunity for problems if you do not read the instructions first.....

Right "size", all the "bells and Whistles" you'd expect, good visibility in light or no light, accessories function well, unit looks and functions like new

Still new, was a Christmas present, will update at a later date

Broke just after return period

Unit functions well, however there are some issues with the Blue tooth option. It is a good GPS and very easy to read.

Awesome GPS


This is my fourth Magellan GPS and extremely impressed with the Roadmate 3055. I especially like the bluetooth capability. The GPS is easy to operate. The price was equally impressive.

cannot transfer data


Looks fairly easy to use

Cannot transfer all of my address data from Magellan Roadmate 3055 to the Maestro 4250. Tech support says it is not possible. Would have been nice to know this before I bought it
