Magellan RoadMate 360

 

The RoadMate GPS device has capable navigation and well-designed search, but its hardware buttons add bulk.

Capable navigation, good search

somewhat bulky, no battery

Magellan RoadMate 360

 

Type: Automobile, Display Type: Touch, Power: Adapter, Turn-by-turn: yes, 3D View: no, Hard Drive: no, Additional M...

Good screen. Complete set of U.S. maps built into the system.

No 3D view. Unintuitive Interface.

The Magellan RoadMate 360's preloaded maps and turn-by-turn guidance are great, but maneuvering the interface is more difficult than it should be.

Consumer review by: A Service Techician (newegg.com)

Horrible unit - Even worse support

 

Figuring this HAD to be a defective unit, I contacted Magellan support. After explaining all the shortcomings of this unit, I was told (in what seems to be the now customarily barely intelligible English), to initialize the unit to correct the problem....

Bright screen, good voice prompts, fairly easy to change settings

Erratic tracking - slow to pick up turns and decidedly skow to recalculate if you deviate from the route it's running. Also known to recalculate when you're ON the route it's calculated! Doesn't seem to like cloudy days or anything but wide-open view...

Well! You get what you pay for!

 

If you Drive a lot like me 3 hours a day in different places dont buy it!

The voice is good

Hard to get signal ; It found 60% of the address that i put on it

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Well worth the price

 

This product definitely outweighs the price, very impressed by the visual display and accuracy

No battery and it needs a longer car adapter for vehicles with higher windshields
