Update with Caution ... unusable after update for me

C. A. Cobb, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: Why 3 stars for something that is really just a stylish paperweight (right now). Because I really liked it while it was working. My husband bought this for me for Mother's day (2013) and I have to admit that I had a little bit of trouble converting to the Magellan interface after the TomTom...

S. Young, Amazon

  • Summary: Here is my review of the Magellan Roadmate 5045LM based on my first short local trip. I'm comparing it with a Garmin 1350LMT, since that is the device which I am replacing with the Magellan.

Save your money

J. Banning, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: I received a Magellan RoadMate 5045 from my parents four months ago. Prior to that, I would always borrow my dad's Garmin Nuvi whenever I needed a GPS. Maybe the Garmin spoiled me, but I have not been very pleased with the Magellan since I got it.

Great unit, awesome instruction on highway lane and exit

YY, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: I like this GPS! I've tried older Garmin before and I hated the last-minute indication of turns and its interface. This is what I'm looking for: 1) the touch of input is very responsive- good for youngsters who tend to type or tap quickly. 2) big screen with clear layout of information.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!

BGN, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: We've had to return ours TWICE (in less than six months) for repair or replacement. The second time it failed was after we were 200 miles into a 1000-mile trip heading out West. Plus, the software interface is, often, not very intuitive.

Roadmate 5045

Victor L. Louie, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: It cost $200.00 to upgrade my map in the car, it is cheaper buying a new GPS instead with the lastest maps. My car doesn't allow me to make changes while it is moving, my partner can change my Magellan GPS settings for me while we are moving. The traffic report is really helful.

Good device - faulty cord - sent back

Dr A, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: We bought this unit to replace our Garmin GPS. We had a Magellan many years ago, and like its look and feel. We chose this Magellan because it shows you how the GPS will guide you by offering road to road directions to the destination. We returned it because the unit does not turn on each time.
