Great for someone who wants an easy to use and easy to hear GPS.

Summary: I know the 1220 is an older model, but I needed a GPS that is easy to use and if you don't use it for awhile, it will charge up fast. ANOTHER COMMON BRAND TAKES 2 hrs to recharge if you don't use it for awhile, but my Magellen works right after I plug it into the cigarete lighter and the other thing that is really good is YOU CAN HEAR IT, where the other brand I had to keep resetting the volume every time I used it because it was hard to hear.
Interesting device that can provide some surprises.

Summary: Display is a bit weak during the day and is hard to see because it is not bright enough. It is also a bit more difficult to use then the Garmin I was using before it stopped working. It also tends to place you on a road where you have to make turns to stay on that route and not tell you that you have a turn coming up. If you know the area it isn't a real problem but if not it is an issue.
