  • Summary: I was using Garmin Nuvi and Garmin steetpilot. Both are doing bad. The worst part is Garmin Nuvi. It gave me much trouble giving wrong direction. So I decided to buy another one but not Garmin. When I read the review about Magellan 5045LM, I was not sure about its performance. But I decided to try it anyway. Magellan Roadmate 5045LM works so great. Compare to Nuvi, its performance is magnificent. I wonder how Magellan can sell this product so cheap.

  • Summary: I bought this gps on 10-14-14 and the second I use it on the road, two things happen... the gps charger doesn't work and the gps itself doesn't hold the charge after I charged it all night. It's a piece of garbage and I'm gonna get my money back and get a brand new one!

  • Summary: We have used this GPS for two vacations and several other small trips. It really helped us get to where we were going without any mishaps. It no longer says "calculating" which is great. We still get "make a legal U turn" sometimes. But if I have chosen a different way to go than the way she wanted me to go, I just keep going. Eventually she catches up.

  • Summary: I am in transportation business. A GPS is a must tool. On day 1, I needed to go to 50 locations. It led me to wrong spots 2 times. After that, I had to pull over to look at a map. I definitely need to return it.

Magellan GPS 5045 Nothing Special At All..Waste Money.

  • Summary: Purchased this item to replace my older Garmin. Bought this over another Garmin since it advertised it contained AAA Tourbook since i travel a lot and find this handy vs. carrying many paper tourbooks. It all went downhill from there. First thing is if you are interested in this device for something other then navigation, don't buy it. 1) The poi's are so out of date and don't even list major items. I saw a lot of duplication of stuff.

  • Summary: My husband was pretty excited to receive this purchase in the mail, but that was short-lived once we opened the package. First off, the battery was 100% dead--most devices have at least a little bit of juice, but we figured a refurbished item may not. The charger port is very loose and will not acknowledge the charger unless you hold it in and carefully place it on a table so as not to jiggle it the slightest bit.

  • Summary: Purchased this refurbished unit to repace another magellan roadmate that is about 10 years old. My old unit works perfectly but I didn't want to pay $37.00 to up date the maps. So far the this one works as expected, great. Love the audible ding when to turn, great for eyes free driving along with the verbal directions & turns. The only negative was the case has alot of scratches which is not a big deal.

  • Summary: I bought this gps for the price and features it had. I knew it was a refurb. After I got it home and hooked it up to my computer, it tells me it's not compatible with my computer. After nearly 2 hours on the phone to tech support at Magellan, they finally decide it has a factory software defect. The irony is great, I had a factory refurbished unit, that was supposed to be repaired of all defects, and it comes a factory defect.
