Summary: I purchased this unit along with the $100 option for updates for life. The first several updates went without a problem, but the latest attempt resulted in the unit locking up due to a software error. There is no way to reset this model (even though the on/off switch has a reset position).
Summary: This review is from: Magellan RoadMate 1475T 4.7-Inch Portable GPS Navigator (Electronics) Unlike other reviewers who have predisposition to certain brand, e.g., someone who used a Garmin for long time and now came to criticize the Magellan, I am a long-time user of GPS of both Magellan and Garmin...
Summary: Works as indicated. Very happy with the purchase. The birds eye view of the road ahead is very helpful and the spoken directions are easy to follow. It is quick to update and picks up the GPS signal fairly quickly. Overall good product for the lost cost.
Summary: I purchased my Magellan GPS from Costco. Soon, error messages like "Your device needs to be restarted to increase performance." started appearing. Do an internet search for this phrase. IT'S A COMMON PROBLEM WITH MAGELLAN GPS units! All would be well, if they would provide me with a software update.
