  • Summary: Magellan failed to download the European maps that come with so the quality control is extremely disappointing I have a bulky object of NO use I am dragging around Europe. I have to cut my travels short due to this error.

Buyer Beware

Diane W. "Diane W.", Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: This arrived WITHOUT the pre-loaded maps the description boasts about. I'm sure it was just a factory error but we won't take the chance again. Customer Service for Magellan, (the wait on hold was 30 minutes) finally concluded that it was a faulty product and we returned it for a full refund.

Pre-loaded European Maps not included with this unit as advertised.

Crabtree's Collection Old Books, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: This GPS unit was advertised as being pre-loaded with European maps, and both the box and manual said the same thing. However, it had only the North American maps loaded - no European maps. We leave for Europe in 5 days and the unit is useless to us without the European maps.

Magellan GPS 5045 Nothing Special At All..Waste Money.

Margaret, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this item to replace my older Garmin. Bought this over another Garmin since it advertised it contained AAA Tourbook since i travel a lot and find this handy vs. carrying many paper tourbooks. It all went downhill from there.

Where are the Europe Maps

Bradford Caslon, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought one two weeks ago--immediately the device called for an update. So I did, checked then for Europe maps, not there! Spent 35 minutes waiting for support on the phone, they ended up wanting to send me another one (claimed it would be new).

Steven Stahley, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: Maps of Europe are not very accurate. Limited functions, as example can not navigate to a GPS position have to use address,, city center, etc. actually am so disappointed I have used it once and plan to return. Very disappointed.
