The Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM is a premium GPS navigator with a  7″ touch screen and amazing features that include lifetime map updates, Bluetooth calling, OneTouch™ favorites menu, free lifetime traffic alerts, highway lane assist and many more. 
I was super excited when I received it and I have to say that after using the new GPS for over two months I just absolutely love it.  I was used to my Iphone’s GPS but the screen is tiny and at times it is hard to see where I am going while driving, plus I didn’t have any lifetime traffic alerts.

The RoadMate 9055-LM’s screen is really BIG and that helps avoid distractions when following the instructions in the screen, plus it makes it super easy to enter words and navigate the menu.  My personal favorite feature is that this GPS comes with free lifetime map updates. I mean I never have to worry about out of date maps. I remember driving with friends and their GPS and getting lost or driving in circles because the GPS’s map was so out of date it didn’t know any of the new buildings or addresses.

Something that my husband loves about the RoadMate 9055-LM is the Bluetooth technology that allows to make calls from the GPS navigator hands-free. The noise-cancelling microphone is great and we haven’t had any dropped calls. 
Seriously, there are so many amazing features to talk about.  With the free lifetime traffic update you can avoid serious delays and get anywhere on time. No more traffic jams or getting stuck in construction zones. We seriously love that! Specially with our son who hates when the car is not moving. 

Something else that really helps is the beeping sound the RoadMate 9055-LM makes when it is time to turn or you are approaching an intersection where you should turn.  It allows me to be certain when making the turns and I don’t feel like I am guessing like I used to when using other GPS systems.

In general we have no complains about the RoadMate 9055-LM, it is a lot bigger/heavier than my Iphone but I wouldn’t change any of the features. I mean, it just makes driving around the city and getting places SO easy now.  Thanks Magellan!
