Summary: I have owned 2 other GPS from Magellan. This one is by far the best. There is a learning curb...short but free. I got this morning and drove over 250 miles stopping at 15 different addresses in different cities. It performed really well.
Summary: Nice features. On first trip froze and rebooted during normal driving. Slow route recalculation. Froze in POI function. Sent two emails to Magellan support with no response. Returned unit. Would not waste your money on this unit.
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.
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.
Feel comfortable driving in unfamiliar territory with a Magellan Roadmate!

Summary: This is my second portable Magellan GPS. I have been happy with the Company and therefore stayed with it. The lifetime maps and traffic updates is a great feature and lets me believe if I take care of the unit, I won't need to purchase another one for quite a while.
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: We had a 6 years old Magellan Roadmate. We love Magellan because it has the build in AAA. I bought this GPS for my 72 years old husband as a birthday present. He loves it!!! The screen is big, easy to see and easy to operate.
good Gps ,good maps, super fast, easy to use, I love it
