Magellan RoadMate 360

Dec

pcmag has reviewed the Magellan RoadMate 360 GPS system. The RoadMate 360 offers preloaded maps, touch screen display, a large POI database, and a built in trip planner.

The Magellan RoadMate 360 is a new, turn-by-turn navigation system that Thales Navigation recently added to the in-car RoadMate series. The RoadMate 360 weighs just 9 ounces and, with its 2.9- by 2.2-inch screen, could easily be mistaken for its sibling, the Magellan RoadMate 300. Like the 300, the 360 has a bright nonreflective screen and orange backlit buttons. The biggest difference is that the 300 requires you to add regional maps for navigation using a PC, whereas the 360 comes loaded with complete maps of the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

Overall, the Magellan RoadMate 360 is a decent entry-level GPS-device kit. We really liked the turn-by-turn guidance that shows a close-up of your upcoming turns. But maneuvering the interface was sometimes a bit clumsy, and we hope future iterations will include 3D maps.
