Had it for one day

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this GPS on black friday for 109.99 which I thought was a steal. Just some of the things that went wrong or that I didn't like about the device. I ran routes for drives that I do on a frequent basis.

Disappointed

J. Macy "Finnicky Frank", Amazon

  • Summary: I just bought this for my dear old mom, who can't ever seem to remember how to drive to my house 2 hours away, in Boston. She lives in NH, and comes down to the "Big City" every 2-3 months, and I'm sick of spending 45 minutes on the phone holding her hand coming to my place everytime, so I figured...

  • Summary: I just tried out my Magellan 5045-LM for the first time and it was weird to say the least. The screen looks awesome, the interface is very nice and it would track you almost in real time as you move down the road (a nice improvement over my old Maestro which would jump from one place to the other...

Magellin Roadmate 5045

Gloer, Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: I've used "in-car" nav systems for the past 7-years and just replaced my Tom Tom with the Roadmate. It's easier to use, gives better directions and has more features than you will need. If you never intend to contact their Support group, it's a screaming buy.

Magellan 5045

J. S. Rittenbach, Amazon
19 November 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Great visual layout, most of the most important frequently used options are easily accessible on the touch screen and easily allows you to move between 2D and 3D. The map moves for further viewing with a stroke of your finger. Turn warning bell is helpful to get your attention.

A clear winner...

Floyd Goodrich "Jim G.", Amazon
15 November 2010
  • Summary: I have had many GPS's looking for the perfect GPS, none exists but this Magellan comes close even thought its semi bare bones, its a GPS and nothing more than a GPS. The lane assist features is what I look for in a GPS and this one with highway signs with arrows is OK but my Tom Tom with the big...

Great unit... while it works

Old Man Bob "Toetag", Amazon
10 November 2010
  • Summary: Initially, I was pleased with my 5045 LM. Little quirks here and there that differed from my Garmins and from the GPS on my Android phone. Biggest thing at first was its unreliability in displaying traffic notices.

Unit - excellent; Software - horrible

K. Guttenberg, Amazon
10 November 2010
  • Summary: The magellan 5045 is a nicely built unit with a lot of great features. However, the software which provides new maps called "Content Manager" is the worst piece of mainstream consumer software I've had the displeasure to encounter in years. It is horrible.

Always take backup

zjsimp, Ebay
6 November 2010
  • Summary: This was my first purchase and therefore use of a gps unit. I was fairly proficient at figuring out the basics of its use. I did find the manual lacking in information for the novice. I purchased this unit to help me navigate a 1900 mile motorcycle tour of the south.
