If you're looking for a good, basic 4.3-inch GPS device from Magellan, the RoadMate 2035 could be a good choice. With a list price of $160 (down to a $95 street price as of December 22, 2010), the 2035 is the least expensive 4.3-inch navigator in Magellan's current lineup. Like all of the RoadMate models, the 2035 features lifetime subscription-free, advertising-supported live traffic alerts. But its omissions might have you looking elsewhere. Compared with other models in the RoadMate 2000 line, the 2035 is a stripped-down version of products that have list prices of only a few bucks more. While the core navigation features are identical to what you find across the RoadMate line, expect to give up some conveniences as a tradeoff for buying this entry-level model. First, the included map set consists of only the 48 contiguous states, plus Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Canadian maps are not included. Also missing is the AAA TourBook as well as the highway lane-assist feature. While the TourBook is nice to have, it's not critical--unless you're the sort who plans lots of weekend getaways. But I wouldn't suggest purchasing a GPS device that doesn't have some type of a highway lane-guidance feature.
The least-expensive RoadMate in Magellan's 2010 lineup, the $169.99 (list) Magellan RoadMate 2035 is a solid GPS bargain with a 4.3-inch screen, free lifetime traffic alerts, and preloaded maps of the continental United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. It's not perfect, but it gets the job done with a minimum of fuss - providing you can tolerate the frequent ads. The svelte RoadMate 2035 measures 3.3 by 5.0 by 0.6 inches (HWD) and weighs 5.2 ounces. It's made entirely of plastic, with a glossy front-panel frame. In the box, you get the receiver, a windshield mount, a car adapter, and a user handbook. There's no adhesive disc included for dashboard mounting, though Magellan sells one separately on the company's Web site. The two-piece mount was easy to set up, though a small space remained visible between the unit's bottom edge and where it sits in the mount. On the plus side, you can either plug the unit in directly to the charging cable, or wire it through the mount first. The 4.3-inch screen looks colorful and sharp, though not particularly bright. In my tests, a particularly sunny day was enough to almost drown out the display completely, even with the brightness cranked up. Magellan's OneTouch interface lets you set favorites and navigate to them with, well, one touch.
