Summary: Magellan Roadmate 1445T works without fuss. It has been over a month since I purchased the unit. So far, directions have worked pretty well. It rings a bell at every turn / split on the road. On many occassions, I defied its directions to take the road I knew well. It recalculates the new route pretty well. The traffic component has not been that useful on the road I take. It does a good job of finding shops, restaurants and places.
Summary: This my second Magellan gps unit I own. It&amp;apos;s an accurate unit to find streets. i use when travel and it&amp;apos;s always accurate and easy to use. my old Magellan GPS needs to be update. That&amp;apos;s my next project to find updates on my magellan 1300 series or may i can the updates on my 1445t unit.
Summary: I thought I would spend a little more and get the traffic option. It works, but here's the catch. You have to endure advertisements. Little advertisements for banks, drugstores, etc. scroll across the screen at different times during your route. 5 stars would have been my rating except for this invasion.
Summary: We've had ours less than a month and was very satisfied with it and how it told you the exact name of the roads that you needed to go but then it stopped working. Dead. It was a big price to pay for such a short time of use. I would have recommended it up until this happened.
