  • Summary: I am in transportation business. A GPS is a must tool. On day 1, I needed to go to 50 locations. It led me to wrong spots 2 times. After that, I had to pull over to look at a map. I definitely need to return it.

  • Summary: I needed a second GPS for the other vehicle. The new GPS was a refurbished unit available from Walmart and cost and lifetime maps were the principal reasons for purchasing this unit. My other unit was a TOMTOM XL IQ Routes (4+ years old). It's been a good GPS that met my needs however my main complaint is that it did not have lifetime maps and an updated map is not worth the price. The new GPS needed over 3 hrs to download all the updates.

  • Summary: So far I have been pleased with it, but the charger that came with the refurbished unit was "dead" in the box. Magellan customer service sent a replacement in 5 days total time. The unit works fine. My only complaints are it does not show speeds, either actual or posted. The other pesky issue is that the Magellan Content manager software is known for causing computer issues, as it did for me: always asking for permission at boot-up for a Magellan .exe file.

  • Summary: We got a great deal from Wal-Mart on our Magellan 5045 LM. I was surprised how poor the computer interface is. For example, in one spot you can check to see if there are map updates. There is a drop down menu to select your model - but there was no search button or go button to tell the computer to look for updates. Maybe it doesn't like the newest Windows Explorer. I was pleased with how the unit gives directions and knows where it is.

  • 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...which is why i had to buy a used one because my dad paid for what my tomtom was worth used. I think this will do the job and i'll eventually get used to it.
