Value for Money , cold start problem

chennaizombie, Ebay
25 September 2010
  • Summary: I got the Magellan Roadmate 1412 from ebay and it has worked very well serving me well on numerous road trips. Only thing with the GOS is that it has an operating temperature concern - if you want to use it in Winter - wait for atleast 5 minutes for it to warm up before the directions start showing...

Great GPS, battery, not so much

C.A, Amazon
8 June 2010
  • Summary: I'm pretty happy with the performance of this GPS unit, save for one category -- battery life. On a full charge, the GPS lasted only two hours or so. This was with frequent use -- I'm a delivery driver, so I was punching in addresses every 15-20 minutes.

Pretty Good

  • Summary: I've had this for about six months now, and have used it on several road trips. Pros: Acquires satellites pretty quickly. I find that it does it a lot quicker if you turn the unit on where you last turned it off.

1st time owner..magellan gps

tomrip1, Ebay
5 April 2010
  • Summary: I'm sure it'll be a useful tool in unfamiliar areas, but initially I'm still figuring out he best way to use it on routes I'm already using. I got it because it comes with very favorable reviews from impartial consumer groups,...and it's ease of use.

What You Need to Know

Al "Cub Fan", Amazon
5 March 2010
  • Summary: Before you buy, you may want to know that map updates are available (if necessary) for free during the first 30 days after purchase. After that, map updates are $75, which seems high. That is almost the current cost of the GPS new.

Unit same price as Garmin map update

bstump10, Ebay
7 November 2009
  • Summary: Purchased for the same price as a map update for my garmin. I like the fact it names streets and gives ample notice of upcoming turns(usually 2 mi. in advance). Do not like battery life. Battery was fully charged when put away and 2 weeks later went to use and after a few min.

after a lot of hand wringing, very pleased with this purchase

Elin RW "truly liberal", Amazon
18 August 2009
  • Summary: After reading ton after ton of reviews of other GPS systems I settled on this one as a friend of mine had a Magellan and it seemed easy. I got it two days before leaving for a trip and couldn't print the manual which came on CD and was, therefore, reliant on my own intuition and non too competent...

Excellent text to speech GPS. Easy to use

Prof100 "I hate bad quality", Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this because my entry level Jensen NVX 200 GPS just wasn't cutting it for me. My primary purpose is to use it in rental cars when on a business trips. $13 a day rental is absurd. The Jensen documentation was useless and not intuitive whatsoever.
