Pre-loaded European Maps not included with this unit as advertised.

Crabtree's Collection Old Books, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: This GPS unit was advertised as being pre-loaded with European maps, and both the box and manual said the same thing. However, it had only the North American maps loaded - no European maps. We leave for Europe in 5 days and the unit is useless to us without the European maps. What are you going to do to remedy this situation?

  • 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.

Margaret, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • 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thing is if you are interested in this device for something other then navigation, don't buy it. 1) The poi's are so out of date and don't even list major items.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.

I am willing to change my mind

  • Summary: July, 2014- I bought one of these without reading the reviews and am still kicking myself!! The maps of Europe were not included and Magellan REFUSES to acknowledge that this is possible!! The telephone consultant told me that he could not help me and that I needed to try the chatline which was also of no use. He told me that they he would contact the software engineers to tell them there was a problem. Of course there is a problem, no quality control.

Do Not Buy This!

  • Summary: I was a Magellan user for a long time. It has some features that Garmin does not have. But this particular one has wrong maps and gave lots of wrong turns. Do not but it. I'll still stick with Magellan but not this model.

  • Summary: Was disappointed that this one did not show the speed limit for the majority of travel but otherwise very dependable and maps are great for my travels.
