Died in one year

Amazon
22 February 2012
  • 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. If you are looking to get a reliable unit don't look here.

Best Ever!

Amazon
15 February 2012
  • 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. Easy to program, easy to see, just plain easy!!

Magellan 5045LM and 5145TLM Lifetime Map Updates

Amazon
14 February 2012
  • Summary: I have 3 Magellan units with FREE LIFETIME Map Updates. I have 2 5045LMs and 1 5145TLM. The only problem is, Magellan has only released 1 (ONE) map update in the last 8 months in comparison to my Garmin which has received 1 Free Map Update every 3 months. Magellan recently switched to TeleAtlas and in an e-mail communication in December, Magellan Tech Supprt told me that they had released v45 to replace v43 maps which were released in June 2011, but their release had...

Great unit.

  • Summary: This is my third unit since the first GPS came on the market for $1,200.00 I would not go away with out it. Wish they would include a 110 Volt charger or at least point to it at the advertising it would save additional shipping costs.

Great product, awesome value!

  • Summary: Upgraded from a Magellan Roadmate 6000. Bought two of these and they are fantastic! Larger screen but much thinner and lighter. Better features with lifetime map upgrades and lifetime traffic make this a great buy.

Pros/ Cons

prhea1st, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I like this unit and how it operates. It needs to stay plugged in or it will drain the battery rather quickly while in use. I found this out after the car outlet went dead for some reason. And because of that issue- I found something I do not like with this unit and that is a battery level indicator? Does not seem to have one that I can find. When it is done it just powers off with no warning.

Really good GPS, lousy documentation but pretty intuitive

cbayk9, Ebay
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Off and running right out of the box! Magellan recommends charging the 5045's battery for at least an hour prior to first use - I charged it overnight in my car. This morning was first use. It locked on to the satellites quickly and worked as I would expect a Magellan to work - the unit is quick, seamless and intuitive. Good thing it's intuitive because the accompanying documentation is pretty much worthless.
