Summary: I read some reviews on line and this unit was touted as great bang for the buck. My wife uses it for business. We like the screen which was larger than our old unit. We like the volume as it is easily heard over the car noise. The warning to exit and turns start at about 2 miles out.
Summary: works great like new!not hard to use. easy to teach my mom how to use it with no complications.. its loud and clear when giving directions. the only thing is it gives you long directions when you can go a quick and faster way to get to destination.
Why Pay More? Its everything you want from a GPS and then sum!

Summary: One of the easiest to use, bright screen,chime sounds to confirm the turn or exit(comes in handy when there are multiple streets at night)just try to get it lost it will always keep you on course and the traffic alerts is a plus This is my second Magellan and I've never lost a signal I would not buy...
Summary: I CAN HAVE IT FIND THE CLOSEST STARBUCKS!!!!!! ISN'T THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING??? It is a nice and small navigator. I like the fact that it has a chargeable battery so you can use it while you are in the house and preview the route before you actually leave.
Summary: Simple to use straight from the package. Love the AAA points of interest. Screen size and clarity are amazing. Enough customization of the features to make it your own. My least favorite thing is that I can not just enter a city and street, you have to have a full address, but I can learn to live...
Summary: Remanufactured by Magellan with a full as new on year warranty at less than half the retail price; plus, so easy to use you’ll do fine even if you just throw out the manual and just start using it.
Summary: This is my first car gps unit, and I had my doubts about it. I mean, I've lived without one this long, why do I need it? Was I ever wrong! Now I don't see how I could ever have functioned without it!
Best GPS for the money, and it just got BETTER for FREE !!

Summary: I don't typically review products, but the 1470 was worth my time. I feel that GPS users fall into two catagories, casual user, and hardcore user. I drive all day for my job, and having a GPS that gets me there, fast, with no issues, is a must.
Summary: I purchased the Magellan Roadmate 1470 Auto GPS receiver a little over a week ago and upon receipt was immediately impressed at how very easy it was to operate, adding addresses could not have been easier, the quick spell feature is awesome, I've used other GPS units in the past, but I cannot...
