Not bad if you can get at a decent price (under $50.00 would be decent)

  • Summary: I've had the Roadmate 1420 for about 3 years now. In most cases it has gotten me to my destination without any problems, however, I noticed recently after I did a map upgrade it is now giving me wrong directions. This started when I did the spring 2013 upgrade. on 11/20/2013 I did the fall upgrade, but it made no difference. It is still giving me the wrong directions. I'll try and get this resolved with Magellan but the unit is probably out of production now.

Very nice unit and easy to use

wheatfieldboy, Ebay

  • Summary: An excellent unit. Easy to use, easy to read and it is comparable to much higher priced instruments. This is the second one of theses I have bought. Got one for my 20 year old last year and getting one for the 19 year old this year. I prefer it to my buddy Garmin. He does too.

battery life less than ten minutes

Fred S. Hann, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: Very disappointed in the battery life. Less than five minutes after disconnecting from car charger it shows "low battery" and shuts down. You can squeeze another five minutes from it by cancelling the shut-down. The map it came with is useless for anything constructed in the last two years where I live (Destin, FL 32541). The "free map update" did not work and additionally the magellan site locked out my serial number. I would never buy another magellan product again.

touch screen not sensitive at all, no free upgrades, good value for $40

jdb.45, Ebay
28 July 2011
  • Summary: This is an average GPS unit for GPS units made prior 2011. It is not upgradable without a fee, but for the going price of the unit used, it is a good bargin. I give it a lower rating on ease of use only for the touch display......it requires a bit more effort on the touch display than most other GPS units...basically you have to 'touch harder' as it is not sensitive at all....some folks may like this, but I don't.
