  • Summary: This is my third unit since the first GPS came on the market for $1,200.00 I would not go away with out it. Wish they would include a 110 Volt charger or at least point to it at the advertising it would save additional shipping costs.

Great product, awesome value!

  • Summary: Upgraded from a Magellan Roadmate 6000. Bought two of these and they are fantastic! Larger screen but much thinner and lighter. Better features with lifetime map upgrades and lifetime traffic make this a great buy.

Pros/ Cons

  • Summary: I like this unit and how it operates. It needs to stay plugged in or it will drain the battery rather quickly while in use. I found this out after the car outlet went dead for some reason. And because of that issue- I found something I do not like with this unit and that is a battery level indicator? Does not seem to have one that I can find. When it is done it just powers off with no warning.

Really good GPS, lousy documentation but pretty intuitive

  • Summary: Off and running right out of the box! Magellan recommends charging the 5045's battery for at least an hour prior to first use - I charged it overnight in my car. This morning was first use. It locked on to the satellites quickly and worked as I would expect a Magellan to work - the unit is quick, seamless and intuitive. Good thing it's intuitive because the accompanying documentation is pretty much worthless.

Good but not great!

Duane Watts "Wayne1one", Amazon

  • Summary: I really expected more from Magellan, the screen size is excellent but it is slow to react to changes such as wrong turns. Initial start up is super slow and it takes a long time to connect to the satellite. The GPS is approximately 50 feet off so some of the turn directions appear to be up coming but are actually current turns! This calls for the users to have to turn around to make missed turns.

Hardware great, software not so much

Cindy Cooke "Serious about gadgets", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought my first Magellan GPS in 1999 when the product consisted of a big hard drive that sat on the floor of my car and was connected to a handset and an external antenna. I currently own a fairly new Magellan Maestro that still works, but decided to buy this model (5045-LM) so I wouldn't have to buy new maps every year. I show dogs and that means I do a lot of travel in my car, so I am very dependent on my GPS.

Eorope feature

Jack B. Nimble, Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Before traveling to Italy, I purchased this model because I could not upgrade my model 1412 for the Europe region. While it was helpful, I was not pleased that the map did not show the towns along the route like my 1412. Also, the battery life seemed VERY short when the unit was unplugged from the vehicle's lighter outlet. Was not useful when walking because of the short battery life.

The Magellan 5045 is a valuable tool for any driver at a reasonable cost.

  • Summary: I spend a few hours a week looking for local addresses and would rather focus on traffic than be distracted looking at street signs. My Mother has a Magellan and is even able to find our house with no problems so I gave it a try. I really like the large display because it is easy to see. Programing the unit is very easy as it only displays the keys that are relevant and eliminates keys as you type to make it easy to enter addresses.
