  • 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.

Good but not great!

  • Summary: I really expected more from Magellan, the screen size is excellent but it is slow to react to changes such as wrong turns. Initial start up is super slow and it takes a long time to connect to the satellite.

Hardware great, software not so much

  • Summary: I bought my first Magellan GPS in 1999 when the product consisted of a big hard drive that sat on the floor of my car and was connected to a handset and an external antenna. I currently own a fairly new Magellan Maestro that still works, but decided to buy this model (5045-LM) so I wouldn't have to...

Eorope feature

  • Summary: Before traveling to Italy, I purchased this model because I could not upgrade my model 1412 for the Europe region. While it was helpful, I was not pleased that the map did not show the towns along the route like my 1412.

The Magellan 5045 is a valuable tool for any driver at a reasonable cost.

  • Summary: I spend a few hours a week looking for local addresses and would rather focus on traffic than be distracted looking at street signs. My Mother has a Magellan and is even able to find our house with no problems so I gave it a try. I really like the large display because it is easy to see.

Great GPS Unit

mrtim63129, Ebay
3 October 2011
  • Summary: The Magellan 5045 is a very nice GPS unit. I've had two other GPS units from other manufacturers and while both of them were decent this one is the best I've used. Pros: The 5 inch screen is nice, quite bright and very easy to read. The voice while somewhat electronic is easy to understand.

  • Summary: I do like the RoadMate and all the features it has. The problem is that it does freeze up at times. Not sure what the issue is with that. Other than that the unit works great.

Good device - faulty cord - sent back

Dr A "A reader of biographies, history, and other non-fiction", Amazon
23 September 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.
