Summary: We used it about 40 times and then it failed. $3 per use. Fun while it lasted, but no value for money in the product. There was no dropping of the roadmate, no leaving it on accidentally, no damage, no firmware update, no fault of mine, seriously! So poorly built that it just bricked itself.
Summary: You've got to be kidding me. I find it hard to believe that Magellan is still in business. If you were taken in by the quality of the Hertz Neverlost GPS and thought "this is the same company, what can go wrong", then think again. First off, the processor is so slow, it is not even funny.
Summary: Maps in our Magellan Roadmate 1412 were 2 1/2 years old. After numerous phone calls and e-mails, Magellan finally agreed to provide new maps, but we had to pay $10 shipping. Amazon, shame on you for selling an outdated product. 4
Summary: It took less than a year for this GPS to stop working. In the middle of a trip this device stopped navigating, and the screen began to show a previous destination from a trip that was taken the week before.
Summary: I can not express how unhappy I am with this product. I received it as a Mother's Day present last year. My husband purchased it for $230. It worked ok for the first few months. It occasionally gave you the wrong directions which is ridiculous.
Summary: The Roadmate 1412 unit began to fail three months after purchase. It failed to recognize any street names when I attempted to enter a new destination address. Responses from both online and telephone technical support were unhelpful.
Summary: I got this at Costco for my brother for $135 (including tax) literally less than an hour ago. The text-to-speech capability, big screen and the price convinced us it was a good buy. Unfortunately, this is one of the things that's too good to be true.
Summary: We have owned a Garmin c330 for several years. We were looking to upgrade and chose Magellan because of their route exclusion features. While this model does have that, it is missing something HUGE. You cannot look up POI once you are enroute. You must exit out of your route, and then look.
Summary: After getting a roadmate 760 that broke approximately 3 months after use, I promised myself not to get a Magellan ever again. They are the worst GPS company in terms of reliability and customer service, if there is any. While shopping at BJ's, I was enticed by the Roadmate 1412's low price of $139.
