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.
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.
