Summary: The unit itself seems to function ok. No huge issues with the piece itself. Stays charged pretty decently, ( warns when not powered up enough..) all the features work and are easy to use. It includes phone numbers to call your destination if it is a business.. Lots of cool, but simple extras that I do like. Unfortunately, it is extremely misleading in directions on a regular basis.
Summary: Not going into too many technicalities, I had a similar product and needed another one to gift someone. PROS: Decent screen size, easy functionality, decent battery life CONS: Sometimes its slightly slow to respond to turns (i.e. it might alert you about a turn when you have almost missed it, for me it works fine because I see the turn instruction on the top of the screen as well.
Summary: I purchased this GPS because my daughter in law bought it and it workes fine for what we need. I didnt need anything fancy, just something to get me to places I had never been before. Directions are concise and it is easy to use. Why carry a piece of paper printed from map quest when you can type in a few key strokes and have someone tell you when to turn. Screen is small but I don't look at the screen, I listen to the directions. Works fine for my need.
Summary: i have an old magellan that no longer has any sound, but otherwise still works great , and a garmin that i can't stand. the new roadmate 1424 works perfectly, finds satellites very quickly as well as finds cities and street names with incredible speed. super gps and the garmin may be heading to the junk heap or back to them with a nasty letter about how much their product sucks. brilliant job magellan!
Magellan Roadmate 1424 4.3 inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator

Summary: I love Magellan GPS navigator items. This model is a replacement model that I had to buy which was a little lower level of my previous one that I had gotten as a gift several years ago, but it still works great for me.
Summary: The suction cup doesn't want to stay attached to the window though. Other than tht it works good, the interface is of quality but I had some time to Get used to it, used to the simplistic approach that tomtom uses. The gps location keeps up With the motion of the car, and always Seems to be on the spot on.
Summary: Shipping was prompt but product is still not accurate with directions even with the updates. It like many other systems has taken me miles out of my way in order to drive me just down the road which is oh so frustrating. It also is extremely frustrating when typing in anything. The system will verbally inform you of what you have typed but the letter or number does not appear and if you continue to type you will have to go back and do it again.
Summary: This product is a great buy. Very user friendly. The screen is wide enough to be viewed by both the driver and the front passenger. We went to a complicated old neighborhood and the directions were perfect.
