Great GPS, no ability to enter coordinates

Mike, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a great product that gets me where I need to go. Large screen, intuitive interface, and good directions. Only issue is that it does not allow input of lat/long coordinates. This is not clearly documented anywhere that I could find.

Great satellite updates

  • Summary: Will take you anywhere you want to go, but will most likely take you through long routes. The satellite updates are a great driving tool.

Best bang for your buck in GPS Navigators

Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: As someone who owns an Android phone with Google Navigation I thought my owning a stand alone GPS days were over simply because, well, I have a GPS on my phone for free so who needs to buy one now.

Pros/ Cons

prhea1st, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I like this unit and how it operates. It needs to stay plugged in or it will drain the battery rather quickly while in use. I found this out after the car outlet went dead for some reason.

Magellan 5045LM

Kim, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought the magellan 5045LM for my parents. I have the garmin Nuvi and for the most part like it; however at times it gets very confused and it doesn't give you as early notice for upcoming turns as the Magellan. Thus I purchased the Magellan for my parents.

Magellan 5045-LM

Christopher Wettach, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: I replaced my Garmin Nuvi 765T because the power cradle kept failing, after the third replacement, I gave up. Please note that the 765T was not the point of failure. The Magellan Roadmate 5045-LM had a larger screen, increased lexicon (pronounced all road/street names), and LT map and traffic.

Great Device

E. Bunts, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: Just returned from VACATION yesterday. Drove from Central FL to SW corner of WI. Had no issue with routing since I used fastest time rather than shortest route. Some of the PoI's seemed to freeze thus causing the device to reboot.
