Summary: About an hour into our first drive with this unit, it turned itself off. We couldn't turn it back on. We stopped at a rest area and fiddled with the power switch and power cord for several minutes and it suddenly turned back on.
Summary: I got this to put on my motorcycle to keep track of my current location while doing some charity volunteer bicycle escorting. Before putting it on the motorcycle I thought I'd play with it in my car. Glad I did so I could see how awful this thing is.
Summary: Let me start this review by saying that I have a Magellan Maestro, that I brought when Magellan was made in the USA by Magellan. This unit has been great and is still going strong. I brought the Roadmate 5045-LM even thought the reviews were not that great.
Summary: Pros: The "Only" Pro I can see in the gps was when the mailman drove away with it, to Return to Sender. Cons: If you have never heard the phrase "When Possible Make A Legal U-Turn" then you should get this gps, the possibilities are endless.
Summary: This Magellan 4045-LM is the best GPS with the most useful options I have found on the market. I have tried Garmin & Tom Tom as well. But this Magellan Road-Mate has all the most useful options for highway travel I have tried.
Summary: As someone who owns an Android phone with Google Navigation I thought my owning a stand alone GPS days were over simply because, well, I have a GPS on my phone for free so who needs to buy one now.
Summary: This was my third Magellan and probably my last, it like the others just died shortly after 1 year. So what is the point of lifetime maps and traffic. During the time I have gone through these three Magellans my wife's Garmin has continued to operate with no problems.
Summary: We've had many GPS devices in the past and always keep coming back to this one. The bell that lets you know without looking that you're on the right path with turns and direction is invaluable. Allows us to know without taking eyes off the road that we're following the directions correctly.
