Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM 5-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Maps and Traffic

Mr. Muff "Charlee", Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: I was very disappointed with the Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM GPS unit. It took at least 5-10 minutes each time to program an address due to sluggishness. When I try to program in a street name with double letters (i.e., ee) in the spelling of a streeet, the unit does not allow me to do that.

Magellan 5045-LM

Tommy, Amazon
4 August 2012
  • 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.

Awful redefined.

H. Boothe, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • 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.

Don't update

Amazon Customer "Music lover", Amazon
21 May 2012
  • 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.

Not Good

M. Lamb "Poverty Wages", Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: Pros: The "Only" Pro I can see in the gps was when the mailman drove away with it, to Return to Sender. Cons: If you have never heard the phrase "When Possible Make A Legal U-Turn" then you should get this gps, the possibilities are endless.

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.

Why the Markup, Amazon?

Bellie, Amazon
14 September 2011
  • Summary: I did not buy this model, and here is why: If you visit the magellan website, this product is listed at 219.99, so someone please explain the $60.00 mark-up in price to $279.99! Amazon is supposed to have deals, not inflated prices. Very unhappy about this since it seems like a decent product.

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

Margaret, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • 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.
