Summary: got it in charge for little over 1 hour it came on ,still working on how to opt, everything . the map says 2010 went Magellan to see if their was a update not real sure one part says the map was lastes when they check the gps ,but know that some the places gps say,s to purchase gas has not been around in 5 years. and theirs been alot of streets added in the 3 years and the street shows to be a deadend were i live and that was 6 years ago ?
Summary: Magellan brand is the best Car mound GPS according to experience of using for years. User friendly design is the best plus confirm sound like double check flag to allow drive knowing that is right to make turn. Seller sold this one without car charge as what AD said. i used as replacement for my old Magellan, small size but broken due to battery dead i think.
great product, very reasonable price, lots of extra's available.

Summary: I love this unit, and will be using it for a very long time. I got the unit to assist me in learning the area of my new patrol position with the police department, but I have been able to find so many other features to go with that. I plan on using this on some upcoming vacationing, and find it clear, and very easy to use. I like the voice, and the ability to not have to look at the unit, until the really screwy traffic situations.
Summary: Bought this product because I had an older one that lasted for many years and wanted to update. Very happy with my purchase, there is nothing I do not like about it. Have bought others for my children and they last a really long time. Wouldn't buy any other brand of GPS.

Pros: Well lit and good voice direction.
Cons: Got slower and slower at finding where we were at. Battery charge became erratic and short. Then it left us stranded in Arkansas and most recently Scranton PA. I would NOT recommend this model. Update support on the Web is almost impossible for us to n
Summary: I bought this GPS because I have an older version of the Magellan RoadMate. I have tried 2 other popular brands, and ended up in cornfields, and on long rediculous journeys. The Magellan RoadMates get you where you want to go in the shortest time. They have an unprecedented re-programing method that is instantaneous if you decide to alter the route yourself. The only set back is their customer service.
Summary: I had another Magellan GPS model 1412 for two years or so before it gave out. I believe leaving it in the car over a cold winter may have ruined it so I am going to keep this 1440 in the house over the winter. I am not happy about having to replace these every two years but when they work they are real champs. The voice - we call her the contessa - never gives me a hard time when I screw up on the road.
