Great, if only it worked!,

This review is from: Magellan RoadMate 3055 4.7-Inch Widescreen Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Great design and architecture, but the product just doesn't work reliably. Love the one-touch control where with just a touch or two you can navigate to any preselected favorite place--a real time saver. There were some other great features, too, although the bluetooth was a bit sketchy both in terms of sound quality and ease of use.
The main problem is that sometimes the unit just won't turn on. One day it works great and the next, just a black screen. I tried two different units and had the same problem with both within the first few days. Apparently this is a Magellan problem because I've seen other posts with similar comments related to the 3045, 3055 and 3065 units. Too bad, I really liked the unit when it functioned. I've switched to Nuvi and hope for better reliability.
