  • Summary: I was greatly anticipating the receipt of my Magellan model 1470. I have had Magellan GPS products before and have always found them to be both reliable and trustworthy. I installed the new GPS and found it easy to put in the addresses and routes we wanted to use. Within three weeks of use however, my excitement had subsided due to the fact that the model 1470 had misrouted me several times.

  • Summary: Let me start with "I love Magellan products". Well, I used to. This is my 3rd Magellan GPS model (after old 800 and 4250). Previous models worked flawlessly. But this unit.... I bought my 1470 on Amazon 06/11/2009. Original unit worked Ok, but could not save current location into address book and sometimes asked to reboot itself. I successfully performed first firmware upgrade to 1.15. Unfortunately, it didn't fix the issue.

  • Summary: I have tried some Garmin GPS such as 255W, 885W, 265W and this Mag 1470. I prefer Mag 1470 over Garmin because it had best map layout, large screen, POI... However, it is currently on it's way back to amazon. The reason was it did not allows me to enter my street number eventhough my number was within the range display on screen. The unit disabled all number buttons. I called Magellan for help.
