Do Not Buy This!

uditha katugampola, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • 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.

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.

Bought used on Amazon

Taylor, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: at first after i fulled charged it from the wall, i used it for the first time and it kept turning off. Also, it zooms in A LOT onto the map so it's hard to see your next turn. I think there's a setting that changes that though. I was just so used to my Tomtom that my brother and dad lost..
