Sometimes Great, Sometimes Runs Me Circles

J. Rodriguez, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not thrilled with this GPS, but there are some nice points. PROS: 1) Large screen. Once you go big, you'll never want a little one again 2) loud and easy to read 3) maps and traffic updates. lifetime maps is a huge bonus. 4) quickly navigates out of wrong turns to get my where I need to go.

Magellan 5045-LM

Christopher Wettach, Amazon
3 July 2011
  • Summary: I replaced my Garmin Nuvi 765T because the power cradle kept failing, after the third replacement, I gave up. Please note that the 765T was not the point of failure. The Magellan Roadmate 5045-LM had a larger screen, increased lexicon (pronounced all road/street names), and LT map and traffic.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!

BGN, Amazon

  • 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.

Before you get on the Garmin bandwagon......

JG, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: If you have been a longtime Magellan user you may want to consider a few things before getting on the Garmin bandwagon. I want to make it very clear that this isn't going to be a review to bash the Garmin 1450LMT, the particular unit I bought and returned, but more of comparison.

Tap your heels together three times. And think to yourself, 'There's no place like Home...'

Aceto, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: OR PICK YOUR FEATURES AND BUDGET AND THEN DECIDE UPDATED March 2013 I was using this new Magellan every day for four weeks back in 2010 when I first got it and then sporadically for several years because I needed it less frequently EXCEPT to get around heavy traffic.

Great unit... while it works

Old Man Bob, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: Initially, I was pleased with my 5045 LM. Little quirks here and there that differed from my Garmins and from the GPS on my Android phone. Biggest thing at first was its unreliability in displaying traffic notices.
