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

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Interface could be a little easier (but not bad) ; Included points of interest out of date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