I purchased the Magellan GPS because of the lifetime updates. I purchased another one before this but I couldn't update it. I travel often and it was a great reassurance that I had a GPS that would always be up to date as I go from state to state. It was easy to setup and very easy to use even without reading the manual. I like the features, it has a large screen, and I just think it's a great product at a great price. It arrived quickly and everything that I needed was included: the mount, the manual, and the usb cable. The only thing that I need is a case. I have no complaints and I would recommend this product to anyone. The fact that it was reconditioned was a bonus for me because I know if it was brand new that it would have cost substantially more. Love it, love it, love it!

I should have listened to other reviewers because mine did the same thing. Not sure if this is inherent with this particular model or just this batch of remanufactured GPS's. I got mine, plugged it in to charge the batteries, they were dead which is unusual I thought. Most of the time when you get a product it will have some charge in the batteries. So I charged this for at least 8 hours. It seemed to work ok, as long as it was plugged in but when I left it for a couple days unplugged and turned off, it wouldn't turn back on. I plugged it in and it still wouldn't turn on. After charging for almost an hour, it turned on but gave me a warning of the battery being low. I plugged it back in to my lighter socket but after about 10 minutes it shutoff. I know I had power at my lighter socket so I charged it some more but it never turned on again so I decided to return it. Thanks to Walmart's generous return policy that part was a breeze....

Functionality - it does what is says it can do. 1. Traffic Updates - accurate and timely. 2. Map lifetime updates - you get 4 updates a year for life which is good 3. Tourbook - did not use it thoroughly ... due to the #1 issue (see below) 4. Graphics - OK - not earth shattering, not cutting edge 5. Lane guidance - OK - not cutting edge 6. Speed limit warning - Good and accurate My issues with the product: 1. Responsiveness - the interface is a tad slow. Sometimes, you click on the screen - and you get no response. You wait ... and wait ... then click it again - then you might get something - two clicks ago. This is very annoying. I have another GPS from 2008 - and the lag barely happens. 2. Lane guidance - the shading between what lanes to take / what not to take is not distinct enough. Under the sun / on the dash, it is hard to notice which lane to take. This is an important feature that needs further work. 3. Missing some features / information - - Speed of vehicle - ETA / Remaining time - Estimated Distance / Remaining distance Because of these 3 issues, I returned mine.

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. The user interface from Magellan is not as intuitive or as feature packed as the TOMTOM. When comparing the two GPS's my old TOMTOM is superior to my new Magellan even though it is newer. The screen configuration is not as good, and it does not have red-light camera warnings or excessive speed warning. There are other things as well, but I think you get the picture overall the old TomTom wins, I just wish that they had free lifetime map upgrades.

I opened the box, plugged in the lighter adapter to charge the unit and nothing happened. Come to find out the wire on the adapter was cut, looked like it was closed in a car door, also the front bezel was covered with scratches. So much for "factory refurbished", you'd think it would at least work out of the box. I found another lighter cord, charged the battery and got the thing working. Before the satellites linked up it showed it's last location, Las Vegas, go figure. The other problem is there's no traffic reports, it just shows "no service", not sure if that's actually the case or if the receiver doesn't function. The online traffic coverage map is spotty in my area so the jury is still out on that. On the positive side, I was able to download and install the newest map. The file was 1.4GB but it was a seamless operation. The Tour Book is out of date showing several restaurants in my area that are now closed or have changed ownership. I guess you get what you pay for, especially in this case! I'm now convinced "refurbished" is just a euphemism for abused then returned.

This is a nice little GPS, and the price was right, so I got it. The response time is not as good as I would like it to be when using the touch screen. I would also have liked to see a "Show Me An Alternate Route" button. Today, the exit from the highway was closed and I needed to use surface streets, and it was useless in helping me. It kept trying to send me back to the highway. Also, there should be a "Use Highways as Much as Possible" button. This was also something I noticed toady, it sends you on side streets instead of using limited access highways. The shortest distance is not always a good thing. I guess if I took the time to program every turn into it, it might do that, but on the go, you need that feature as a default. I plan on talking with Garmin about both these issues, they are a great company, and are responsive to customer needs, so I will see what I can get them to do, maybe they can include it in their next update.

Good price, right? So I order one, wait a week and it get it home to find out it simply shuts itself off after being on for a second. Okay, no worries, I figure Wal-Mart will take it back. So I take it back and order a second. That one comes home and boots up just fine. I think, sweet, this one works, now to update the lifetime maps. After hours of downloading and about eight 30 minute attempts to update the maps now it won't boot up. This piece of garbage is going back. It's fun, you get to download and install this 'content manager' too. It does a nice job of locking up and giving your computer a complete aneurism when ever you open it. I've had Magellan before with good luck...this one is terrible, don't waste your time!

Purchased this refurbished unit to repace another magellan roadmate that is about 10 years old. My old unit works perfectly but I didn't want to pay $37.00 to up date the maps. So far the this one works as expected, great. Love the audible ding when to turn, great for eyes free driving along with the verbal directions & turns. The only negative was the case has alot of scratches which is not a big deal. After reading some reviews wasn't so sure to order but I'm glad I did. Also was able to download updated maps without any problem. So far Have tested it on several local runs before I go on vacation which is the reason why I bought this unit. Also Walmart offered a two year warranty for $8 or $9 bucks how could you go wrong. Happen to be pretty picky about what I buy so I would recommend the purchase of this unit.

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. It also handles changes in routing easily without telling you to make a correction in your driving.

Walmart delivered the GPS faster than expected, but that's where the good news ends. The refurbed unit did not work at all and I was forced to contact Magellan Technical support to get an RA number to return the unit. I called a total of 4 times, waited on hold for more than 30 minutes the first three times before hanging up. The 4th time I made it to a rep in 37 minutes. By 58 minutes I had a RA number and they were shipping me a replacement unit. I will have to ship the defective one back to them at my expense. This is the worst customer service I have ever seen. I will never buy another Magellan product, new, used, or refurbed.
