Summary: Ordered an item on the 23rd, item was shipped and came all the way to fife wa. I live in Spanaway, wa. and now it is on its way back to where it started in Georgia. The times and dates are inconsistant and could not have possibly happened in the order they are registered. I still have no item and it was supposed to be here on the 29th. In fact it still list it as arriving on the 29th. I recieved a e-mail from you saying going to be a few days late.
Summary: Let me start this review by saying that I have a Magellan Maestro, that I brought when Magellan was made in the USA by Magellan. This unit has been great and is still going strong. I brought the Roadmate 5045-LM even thought the reviews were not that great. I decided I would go ahead and get it especially after the price dropped to $109.00 with lifetime maps. After all I loved the Magellan firmware and software. I will admit that the maps themselves are not the best.
Summary: This is the 4th RoadMate 5045 that I have purchased. Was so impressed with the ease of use and lane assist that I purchased units for my sister, daughter amd granddaughter. Two of the units have had problems with lockups, but quick re-set (holding on/off switch to left for 10 seconds) usually corrected problem. Origional unit finaly failed to respond so with some difficulty I was able to find procedure to return for warranty replacement.
Summary: Nice unit for the money. However I bought the Lifetime Maps model, but actually received the standard model. Paid $50 for the V43 update in August 2011, and now it's time to pay again. Actually I would rather buy a new unit that really does have lifetime maps.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised to see the package at my doorstep within 4 days which the estimated time was like 7 to 14 business days and the product is awesome; still in package, all items there, and it works great. Thanks.
Summary: We had a 6 years old Magellan Roadmate. We love Magellan because it has the build in AAA. I bought this GPS for my 72 years old husband as a birthday present. He loves it!!! The screen is big, easy to see and easy to operate. This particular model had the life time update which can save us some monies in a long run.
Summary: Right out the box, this was not working correctly. It couldn't sync up to have the correct time on the clock. After configuring to where its sitting location is (why doesn't it update on its own), I then programmed an address. Thank God I knew where I was going, because the map never moved (it stayed frozen at my home address) with my turns and I rec'd no turn by turn actions. It couldn't stay on the map page. It kept going to the turn listings.
good Gps ,good maps, super fast, easy to use, I love it
3 May 2012
Summary: It is way faster GPS than older magellan I had. Its easy to use and everything is laid out well. I paid 80 bucks for this used one and its still like new! Took a trip from michigan to north carolina and it never let me down. it helps find food or gas if you need it to. I seen a similar model had good revews in consumer reports so I got this one and love it.
Summary: Pros: The "Only" Pro I can see in the gps was when the mailman drove away with it, to Return to Sender. Cons: If you have never heard the phrase "When Possible Make A Legal U-Turn" then you should get this gps, the possibilities are endless. This thing attempted to direct me miles out of the way to go 4 miles.
