Where are the Europe Maps

Bradford Caslon, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought one two weeks ago--immediately the device called for an update. So I did, checked then for Europe maps, not there! Spent 35 minutes waiting for support on the phone, they ended up wanting to send me another one (claimed it would be new).

Great GPS, no ability to enter coordinates

Mike, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a great product that gets me where I need to go. Large screen, intuitive interface, and good directions. Only issue is that it does not allow input of lat/long coordinates. This is not clearly documented anywhere that I could find.

Magellan Roadmate 5045 user review

Steve 1997, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought it as a gift for someone who is not super tech savvy. I have used the older Magellans and they have always performed wonderfully with easy user interface. This one was no different.

Very good with a couple of small bugs

sean moton, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: works great, easy to use lots of features; the negative; if you leave a parking lot, it doesn't tell you which way to turn onto the street. Once you're on the street you're either going the right direction or told make a u-turn.

Bad routing.

ted, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: The routing leaves a lot to be desired. It does not seem to know the best route, I have kept my maps updated and software updated. Once I was routed to an address 1/2 mile away from where I wanted to go. It put me on the correct street, but wrong address.

Nice GPS

12 October 2013
  • Summary: Second Magellan GPS I have owned. Last one needed a map update and was almost as cheap to just buy this new one. Considering this has lifetime free updates you cant go wrong for the price.
