Updating gps roadmates on the internet
Overall though, this is not enough to drop this item from a 5-star rating.
They did a great job on this GPS and you should have no concerns about the quality, ease of use, accuracy or speed with this model. I once had a Magellan in a rental car years ago and loved it but my family had a Garmin for a long time and that's one that they got me a bit back.
It remembers your main city so for Raleigh, for example, I just type R and it's the first choice rather than having to type a lot of the word each time.
I'll work with this some more and update after a real road trip.Of course, you are going to have to enter a destination in order to watch the 3030 do its thing. Answer a few obvious questions via the touch screen and that's it. For owners of previous Magellan units, the interface will be a nicely polished old friend. If you are looking for all the bells and whistles, the 3030LM may seem a little too simple.The touch screen itself is flawless in its "fingernail tip" entry. You have to actually tap the screen for data entry. Another great feature of this Magellan is its system speed. All directions take place seamlessly and without delay. If you are coming from earlier models or other brands, you may well be amazed at how well this little gem works. Gone are all the useless features like audio output, vehicle speed indicator ( you have a nice big speedometer for that) and so on. The screen itself is lovely, with resolution to spare.However, when comparing to previous GPS devices, it is NOT lacking.
Perhaps my perception has just changed due the other devices.There is even a one-touch emergency button that summons police, ambulance etc in case of accident. A little over a year later, I got it out to use on a trip. I plugged it into my pc to update the maps and the update failed. Now it won't get past the title screen as if it is trying to start.
