Summary: I've been waiting for years to finally buy a GPS for my vehicle. My son and daughter-in-law have had one for about 4 years, and from time to time I would borrow it to make trips with. I loved theirs. It's a Magellan Roadmate.
Summary: It cost $200.00 to upgrade my map in the car, it is cheaper buying a new GPS instead with the lastest maps. My car doesn't allow me to make changes while it is moving, my partner can change my Magellan GPS settings for me while we are moving. The traffic report is really helful.
Summary: I've used the Magellan for about two months now with three cross-Midwest drives. The accuracy of the roads is not all that good in the more rural areas. But major cities and main highways are good.
Summary: We bought the Magellan Roadmate 5045 prior to departing on a trip to New York, where we drove a rental car to several places up state and on Long Island. The Magellan was a life saver. It made driving in unfamiliar territory a breeze.
Summary: Excellent service. We love this product and it has worked beautifully on trips. It is great to have help when you are driving in unfamiliar city, and congested streets as well as freeway exits.
Summary: This is my second Magellan GPS, I had a Magellan Maestro 4000 that only contained maps of the 48 U.S. States. Could not buy/update new maps on it...ie: Canada. Bought the Magellan 5045 Roadmate....What a Difference!
Summary: I purchased this item because I wanted the live traffic and also the step by step directions. The step by step directions is handy in that you can review the turns and directions in order that you can determine howthe GPS is navigating you.
Summary: I previously had a Magellan Maestro from 2006 but it recently was stolen. I loved the unit and wanted to replace it. When I found this RoadMate for under $200, I thought I would give it a try. I have several observations: 1.
Summary: If you are then this is the unit for you. It comes with North American and European maps. I needed some help with getting access to the European maps (select region). I used this in Spain and it make driving - especially in the cities, easy. Used it in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville.
