  • Summary: July, 2014- I bought one of these without reading the reviews and am still kicking myself!! The maps of Europe were not included and Magellan REFUSES to acknowledge that this is possible!!

Bought used on Amazon

  • Summary: at first after i fulled charged it from the wall, i used it for the first time and it kept turning off. Also, it zooms in A LOT onto the map so it's hard to see your next turn. I think there's a setting that changes that though. I was just so used to my Tomtom that my brother and dad lost..

Better than nothing but still not great

  • Summary: I bought this GPS because I was tired of getting lost when I would travel to new places or go out of state. It's not a horrible product but it doesn't give the option to avoid the tolls and doesn't even tell you if the route you are taking has them or not.

  • Summary: I have owned 2 other GPS from Magellan. This one is by far the best. There is a learning curb...short but free. I got this morning and drove over 250 miles stopping at 15 different addresses in different cities. It performed really well.

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

Cindy Cooke "Serious about gadgets", Amazon
25 November 2011
  • 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.

Sometimes Great, Sometimes Runs Me Circles

J. Rodriguez "RJ", Amazon
12 July 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: So this is a midrange gps navigator that has a large (thankfully non-reflective) display, it has a good response time, and is encased in a somewhat cheap case. The Good It tells you which side of the road your destination is (unlike TomTom which shows you a tiny arrow if you have a magnifying...
