Magellan RoadMate 9055- LM GPS Review

by Philippa Lane

Do you get lost traveling on unfamiliar highways? Do you find reading a map to be difficult and cumbersome?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you need a Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM GPS. 

I was given a Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM as a gift and have been very pleased with it. The device has made travelling much easier for me with its large 7” screen, voice guidance, and Bluetooth connectivity.

The RoadMate 9055-LM is full of high-tech features, such as- Highway Lane Assist, which helps guide you into the correct lane for approaching exits and lane changes, text-to-speech technology, a video-in jack, which can be used to connect a back-up camera or iPod,  a one touch user interface giving  instant access to popular destinations and favorite addresses, and the unit comes preloaded with maps of Canada, the United States, and Puerto Rico, a built in AAA guide with descriptions and ratings of restaurants, theme parks, museums, and hotels,  by the minute information on traffic conditions, approximations of travel times along with good suggestions of easier routes.  Also, on the device there is a button that you can push to access AAA roadside assistance and when activated, it displays your exact location and if you are a AAA member, a phone number appears that you can call to get immediate roadside help.

Unlike so many other vehicle navigation devices on the market today, the RoadMate 9055-LM has a specially designed multi-surface mounting pad that securely sticks directly onto a vinyl dashboard, eliminating the need to attach the device to the windshield.

I have been very pleased with the technologically advanced features and overall performance of the RoadMate 9055-LM GPS device, because it has helped me get to an unfamiliar destination quickly and easily.  Without using the device, many times I had gotten lost while driving and had to stop at gas stations to ask people for directions or I ended up driving in circles, wasting gas, not arriving to my destination in time or at all.

The RoadMate 9055-LM has improved my driving experience and saved me a lot of time, energy, and money.  It has saved me time, because the easy to follow directions make it so that I am no longer late. It saves me energy, because I no longer need to get out of my car and ask anyone for directions, and it saves me money because, I do not have to drive around in circles, spending gas, trying to find a particular location. The large 7”screen is easy to see without reading glasses and with one glance I can see all of the information needed to get to my desired destination.

The GPS unit is a little expensive, priced at $289.98, but for all of its unique features and accurate guidance, it is well worth the money.

If you are traveling and need a dependable, accurate, and reliable guide that can help you arrive to any destination in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico easily and quickly, then I highly recommend the Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM GPS.  Don’t travel the road without it.
