Magellan RoadMate 5255T-LM & Back-up Camera Bundle

This 5″ touch screen navigator comes with high end features such as Free Lifetime Map Updates & Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts. This bundle also includes the Magellan Wireless Back-up Camera for added safety backing out of your driveway and ease of parallel parking.

Some of the new features make navigation easier. With the Landmark Guidance you receive directions using landmarks as your guide versus street names, making it a more intuitive way to navigate. You’ll hear instructions like “In 200 feet, turn left at the Shell Gas Station”. Then the upgraded Junction View generates realistic images of freeway signs and arrows guide you to the correct lane to make driving easier, safer and less stressful.

Traffic Camera Alerts by PhantomALERT are included at no extra charge for one year. Receive audible and visual warnings of red light and speed cameras along your route. This is verified crowd source data that you refresh on your unit by the free Content Manager from Magellan. You can even become one of the many reporters on the street by submitting your own discoveries or rating the reliability of the alerts you are shown. Premium content is available for an extra cost which includes blackspots (high accident areas), school zones, and dangerous intersections.

Best Parking is another great feature; it makes parking in the city a much easier affair. Best Parking provides parking garage locations with both their hours of operation and the entrance location. Choose the garage that is open as well as close to your destination. Once you have selected a garage you are guided directly to the entrance. No more searching for how to get in!

The integrated AAA Tourbook gives you detailed information on hotels, restaurants and attractions so that you have the information you need to make your destination decisions. And what happens if you break down out on the road? On the special “W

    Not Ready for Prime Time Magellan RoadMate 5255T-LMI opted for this unit because of the 5” inch screen size (that’s all the room I have), the integrated/matched backup camera and the price of $250.The installation went without a hitch. It went downhill from there. I finally uninstalled the system and exchanged it for the Garmin 560LMT. ($270 -More about that below). My major disappointments with the 5255-LM1. Locating the GPS satellites took 2-5 minutes. It also had to…

    DO NOT BUY THIS ONE! This Magellan model is terrible. I am now waiting for my third unit because none of the units (all new, not refurbished) had major problems acquiring satellite signals. The first one took 2 1/2 hours and 150 miles to get the satellites and start working. The second unit, same problem, but it locked on to enough sat’s to work within about 1/2 hour. Waiting for the third unit, will see if it does any better. Not betting on it. The GPS, when it works is really good. Landmark directions is a…

    Convenient and works well as both GPS and back-up camera I decided to try this unit despite the few bad reviews because there are very few combination back-up cameras/GPS on the market, particularly with a 5 inch screen (I have a Smart Car – didn’t want a GPS monitor bigger than the car…). I don’t know why other reviewers had so many problems, but after a few days of use mine seems to be working fine both as GPS and as backup camera.It has a lot of nice features, including a color screen, easy to navigate in GPS mode while driving and…
