Do Not Buy This!

uditha katugampola, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: I was a Magellan user for a long time. It has some features that Garmin does not have. But this particular one has wrong maps and gave lots of wrong turns. Do not but it. I'll still stick with Magellan but not this model.

Works if you don't mess up

1313main, Ebay
3 May 2014
  • Summary: We now have 2 of these units one for my work and the other for personal use. We get along with them alright. The only thing I don't like about them is if you miss your turn it doesn't re-ajust for an alternate route unless you get into the menus and cancel the turn, otherwise all it wants you to do...

Bad routing.

  • Summary: The routing leaves a lot to be desired. It does not seem to know the best route, I have kept my maps updated and software updated. Once I was routed to an address 1/2 mile away from where I wanted to go. It put me on the correct street, but wrong address.

Save your money

J. Banning, Amazon

  • Summary: I received a Magellan RoadMate 5045 from my parents four months ago. Prior to that, I would always borrow my dad's Garmin Nuvi whenever I needed a GPS. Maybe the Garmin spoiled me, but I have not been very pleased with the Magellan since I got it.

Try a different model.

awestner, Ebay
7 March 2012
  • Summary: I don't know how long this unit has been out but there are bugs that even Magellan has not yet fixed. Map updates and program updates can't be executed because the unit is not always loaded properly into the computer. I had to return it to Magellan to update the program and maps.

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.

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.

Magellan 5045 Inaudible

Yensid Maven, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: I have previously owned a Magellan GPS and was looking forward to using a more up-to-date version, so I tried the 5045. (As far as I can guess, the Magellan is the only GPS that have a sound cue - a "ding" - when you are making a correct turn, a feature I like.

Nice Features set, if only the routing worked as good

spinningPro "paintball", Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: I own a Maestro 4250 and have been perfectly satisfied, excellent routing and re-routing, good Poi's and have had it for two years and only looked for another unit because of the maps getting out of date.
