This charger does fit the unit, HOWEVER, the plug end to the GPS does NOT work with the windshield mount/base that came with the GPS. The original cable end snapped into the base, and the replacement cable end is supposed to just plug in but the end is bigger than the cutout in the base so it doesn't plug in all the way when you use the base that came with the unit.

If you are planning on using with the original base, pay the extra and get the real OEM version directly from Magellan.

I have ordered 2 of these and they definitely do what they say they will do. Provided charging and running power for my Magellan with a decent length of cord.

Unfortunately, there were a few CONS. First, it is built to very low standards. I had one that was dropped from about 2 feet off the ground and the plastic housing shattered. All internal components spilled out and because the actual plastic was damaged, it became unusable.

Second, the connector on the GPS end is not an exact match to the original charger so it does not fit the windshield mount properly. This is a minor thing since a little creativity can get you around it but it is definitely worth mentioning.

Overall, if you treat it with kid gloves, this seems to be a good, low-cost replacement adapter.

Pleased with this item, longer reach with the cord. Well made! Very satisfied. Extra length gives more flexibility. Can use front or back outlet.

My Magellan auto GPS came with a 12 v power supply, this works fine but was not needed, now is a back-up.

This charger works fine but the end that fits into the GPS falls out quite easily - should be made to fit a little tighter

A similar charger sells for three times this amount in stores without the memory card. I'm very happy with this Item.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for use with the RoadMate 5045 GPS, September 9, 2012

This product does not work for the RoadMate 5045 GPS. The plug may fit, but the tip breaks easily, does not fit into the car adapter and falls out frequently, especially with bumps in the road. I would not recommend this for the RoadMate 5045 GPS.

1.0 out of 5 stars CarCharger, May 25, 2012
This review is from: ChargerCity OEM Vehicle Power Adapter Cable Car Charger for Magellan Roadmate 5175 5145 5120 5045 3120 3065 3055 3045 2145 2120 2055 2045 2036 2035 GPS Navigator with Extended 9ft Coiled cord for Longer Reach & Easy Storage.

Item was shipped promptly and arrived very quickly. It was a relief to have a new charger that worked perfectly. However, within one month it stopped working and no longer charged the GPS. The GPS seems fine when connected inside and the car outlet works for other devices so it's definitely the car charger that is not functioning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless stuff, April 15, 2012

This power adapter does not bring enough power to switch on Magellan GPS (my model is Magellan 2036-MU)after 5 or 6 uses.
Think twice before buying. As I was using GPS while during driving to new places,hence I sparingly used this power adapter otherwise I could have identified this buggy product earlier. ( I bought this product during first week Feb 2012)
