This is one side-seat driver you'll be happy to listen to!

The Magellan 5" GPS RoadMate® gives you all the tools you need for a more intuitive way to navigate. It boasts both lifetime map updates and lifetime traffic alerts, so you'll always have the latest info and conditions just when you need them. Your Magellan now comes with the Landmark Guidance feature, which uses landmarks instead of street names as routing instructions to make things easier in unknown locations. It also comes with the OneTouch™ Favourites Menu, which delivers a revolutionary new screen flow and ease of use that is designed to maximize functionality while reducing driver distraction.

Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel—whether this device is for you or someone you love, you can ensure you're creating a distraction-free environment regardless of the age and experience of the driver. Let your Magellan replace your smartphone's GPS tool; while many are using their phones as a GPS device, this standalone GPS is still the best device for the job. Global positioning is more accurate thanks to more sensitive GPS antennas, and as a discrete device, this portable navigator doesn't go down the way Internet radio apps crash and lock up your phone whenever you stream.

Jam-packed with features and coming to you for a spectacular value, it doesn't matter whether you're going on vacation or just trying to find that new restaurant, you'll stay confident and safe knowing that you got a friend with all the answers in the Magellan 5" GPS RoadMate.

ok, slow in finding you ..

By JANET

from NORTH YORK

The first one sent did not charge, and was replaced.

This is the second GPS unit I have purchased, both being Magellan. This one takes much longer to find me with the satellites than my earlier version.

I like the bigger screen. I like some of the other features that have been changed from my earlier version.

Do not know why it is so slow to find me. I can sometimes already be at my destination, 15 minutes later, and the unit has still not found me.

But once the satellites do track me down, I do like this version.

SAVED THEIR LIVES...NO JOKE!!!

By Tressa....the praying and thankful Mom

from Winnipeg, Manitoba

I am sooo thankful to the shopping channel for providing Canadians with not only great products...but their EASY PAY system!! It was because of this during the Christmas season that allowed me to buy just "one more gift"....the GPS system for our daughter and husband who just moved to Montreal. Please read Pastor Aaron and Samantha Boswell's story of how it probably SAVED THEIR LIVES...NO JOKE!!! THANK YOU Shopping Channel!!!!!!..............We began by heading towards Buffalo, New York, and got almost all the way to the NY border without a hitch, until we were met with snow falling too hard to see in front of our car! It was an incredible "white out" and, as Samantha and I joked about earlier, we were both sitting there thinking, "well, Lord, we didn't think we'd end up leaving this world like this …". Needless to say, God provided a turn off (which we saw thanks to our wonderful GPS system) and a small town called Dunkirk, New York. We stayed there that night, ate at Applebee's, and welcomed in the New Year. It turned out to be an amazing evening.
If you don't own a GPS yet....you need to buy one...this one is awesome!!!!

Disappointed

By Dorothy

Really disappointed with this GPS. Couldn't personalize the settings to meet my needs and touchscreen not sensitive enough to my touch.
