Buyer Beware

Diane W. "Diane W.", Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: This arrived WITHOUT the pre-loaded maps the description boasts about. I'm sure it was just a factory error but we won't take the chance again. Customer Service for Magellan, (the wait on hold was 30 minutes) finally concluded that it was a faulty product and we returned it for a full refund.

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.

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

Margaret, Amazon

  • 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.

Magellan is my choice

Good Frog, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: I did review this unit before, but went on a road trip to the upper Oregon coast last month and decided I'd add my experience on the trip. I didn't need to use the unit for most of the first day from Sandy to Pendleton, Oregon, but did anyway, just to get past Nampa, Idaho, and on up to Pendleton,...

Do Not Buy This!

uditha katugampola, Amazon

  • 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.

Works if you don't mess up

1313main, Ebay
3 May 2014
  • Summary: We now have 2 of these units one for my work and the other for personal use. We get along with them alright. The only thing I don't like about them is if you miss your turn it doesn't re-ajust for an alternate route unless you get into the menus and cancel the turn, otherwise all it wants you to do...
