Summary: I had a problem downloading an update to the Magellan Content Manager and the 2045T-LM froze. I was unable to unfreeze and called the Magellan Customer Service number. After 3 calls and waiting over 2 hours without human contact, I gave up.
Summary: We have had this item for three months and used it very little. On a recent road trip the button for scrolling down to the address book quit working which meant that all the addresses on our itinerary that we had painstakingly entered, 32 in all had to be re entered.
Summary: I have now had this product for almost two months now and I am not impressed with this product at all. I am a very big Magellan fan but this one is really making me wonder if Magellan is going down hill. This product takes a long time to acquire satellite feed.
Summary: This unit worked horribly! Out of the box it didn't speak the directions. It would only say the name of the street that you should turn on, but IT WOULD NOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO AT THAT STREET! I called the company service and they talked me through resetting to factory defaults.
Summary: This GPS was great - had some wonderful, helpful features. But, it stopped working in 4 months. It is stuck on a destination and we can't get it to allow us to enter another destination, clear it out, or reset it. I'm very, very disappointed.
2 hrs to update and then screen did not work / I would never buy this Magellan 2045t-LM

Summary: It has been an awful experience. After opening up the new unit to register it and update it on line for 2 hrs; The init screen was intermittent responsive and I has to return with Fed Ex and am still awaiting a replacement.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished Magellan RoadMate gps which worked great for about a week. One night the unit just froze so I returned it to replace it with another Magellan - same model. The second one was defected right out of the box. It never worked.
Product overall is poor, "customer service" even worse

Summary: In full disclosure, I have had Garmin products for many years and been happy with them. I have used them in boats, planes and cars. My Garmin units for cars are aging and one of the three died. I replaced it with this Roadmate 2035 due to the great deal it seemed. I was initially very happy with it.
