  • Summary: I bought this GPS because I hear good thing about it. I like that I has a lifetime map updates and it tell live traffic events. It's a great sizes and very friendly user. I just don't know what it's wrong with it, because it wants to power down every time even when it's plugging to the car charger.

Good features but not reliable and poor customer service

  • Summary: So,as it usually happens, you wait till the product gives you trouble to post a review...bought it in Sep 09. Worked okay until now and I actually like the fact that it is a very simple device and it served the purpose of navigating to my destinations very well. And then it happened, it won't boot.

Nice feature poor reliability

  • Summary: I have owned this product for about a year. Mainly the experience has been positive. I love many of the features of the unit and it has been easy to use. Unfortunately the unit appears to be a bit buggy. It often would hang on bootup. At times the unit would get confused and send you in a loop.

  • Summary: Wish the battery on GPS lasted longer when not plugged in, and businesses (restaurants, etc) not up to date (some have not been in existence for 5 YEARS!!!) Also, Magellan cheaped out on manual by charging for it! And even then, if you're in Canada you can't even get one!

  • Summary: A little disappointing. This is my first GPS that I have ever owned. When trying to enter my home address it wouldn't recognize my street. It has my street in a different city and zipcode. I have lived here for over 3 years and my address hasn't changed.

  • Summary: Product has three issues that should be considered in your buying decision: 1) Power connector is located at the bottom of the unit which is a serious design flaw because unit can't be mounted or dismounted from windshield jig without first removing the power cord from the unit (secondary issue tied...

Firmwear is buggy and ver 1.10 update (released 7/2009) doesn't fix it

  • Summary: The unit is Ok but I have spent HOURS on the phone trying to get one simple issue resolved. If you look at page 13 of the manual, you should be able to save a current location give it a name and add it to your address book.

Great entry level GPS but lacking some functions

  • Summary: I received the 1470 and gave it a thorough but fair test (600 mile road trip) this past weekend. It performed all advertised functions as described well. The large screen is easy to use and the directions are accurate and informative and easy to follow.

Nice new line of unit, but did not test before released to market.

  • Summary: I got one from BestBuy almost two weeks ago, and found it was a nice unit. Everything like the old Roadmate. I was happy with it for about one hour, and found out a problem which confirmed as a problem to all of the 1470.
