Summary: THIS IS MY SECOND MAGELLAN. THEY HAVE DEFINITELY UPGRADED TO MAKING THIS EXTREMELY USER FRIENDLY. I LOVE HOW I CAN ENTER DIFFERENT DESTINATIONS INTO THE ADDRESS BOOK AND SAVE THEM. ALSO I CAN USE ZIP CODES AND THEY WILL LIST CITIES WITHIN THAT ZIP CODE THAT YOU CAN JUST CLICK ON TO.
Summary: I recently purchased the Magellan 5045T-EU product for a trip on the East coast and in Germany. The east coast went reasonably well, not perfect, but Germany was a complete fiasco. I drove from Munich to Hohenschwangau to Berchtesgaden and then back to Munich Airport.
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..
Summary: I love this gps . It is also portable so you can take it anywhere you wish to . The graphics are great , and it will send a alarm sound before your turn comes up so you know you will be jacking a turn . Great little tool .
Summary: We have a Magellan Maestro and felt that it was time to upgrade to a unit that tells you the name of the streets and distances. The RoadMate works basically the same way as the Maestro, which is why we decided to go with it. The only pitfall is the double process in updating the maps.
Summary: I've been using this unit for quite a while now, and I have to say, I'm very satisfied with the product. The mount is easy to use. I love the fact that the cord installs into the mount, and then the unit is connected when you slide it onto the mount.
Summary: I really don't get the lower ratings for this item. I'm glad I ignored them and bought this anyway, as we were very pleased. Previously, we had a Radio Shack branded GPS that we HATED. It was awful, and the touch screen wasn't responsive. Just terrible.
