4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Garmin but Dec 23 2011
By drjaws
I have had a Garmin GPS for several years, having bought it because it included European maps as well as North American ones. I had difficulty trying to download map updates so when I found this Magellan unit that also included European maps for less money than map updates I bought it. I have only used it in our province but it seems reasonably accurate, but the voice is a bit wavery and not as clear as the one on my Garmin. Instead of giving another voice command at a turn it just chimes, having given instructions at 3 km and 2km and 1km. It is OK but takes a little getting used to. It does offer new instructions very quickly if you do not take the recommended turns while the Garmin unit says recalculating and takes a little longer to come up with new instructions. Another feature that is different is that it does not give your speed if you are just viewing the map. I find this feature helpful as a check against my speedometer. Another feature of the Magellan is that it defaults to a fairly close view of the map. This can be changed by touching the + button, but I find it helpful to be able to see a block or two ahead especially at night when it is hard to see street signs until up close. My Garmin defaults to showing a larger view which I prefer. My Magellan unit has a larger screen, but I don't this is an advantage since it blocks more of the view and is bulkier to take on a trip when I will be renting a vehicle. I find the 3 1/2" screen to be perfectly adequate. I know these are personal likes, but perhaps they will be helpful to others.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete maps on RoadMate 5045T-EU June 18 2013
Verified Purchase
This is the first time I buy a Magellan GPS. I just bought a RoadMate 5045T-EU for my trip to Turkey. I loaded the Europe maps and made all the updates availables. I tried to enter my destinations in Turkey and I found none of the hotels I’m going to even if they a in touristic cities! In fact many cities seem not to exist nor the roads! Sometimes there are city names but no streets!

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good March 8 2012
By largem
I bought it at a discount price. and it is my first GPS. Big and bright screen. Only one thing I feel not comfortable, you can't charge it through USB by PC even the manual said so. I had difficulties to turn it on since the battery was run up when I got it. But everything is working well after I fully charged it in my car.
