Buying a GPS was a daunting task. I was contemplating purchasing one for quite sometime but kept going back and forth on whether its worth it. The main issue was I wrongly assumed that you needed a higher end GPS to get a quality experience, but I would not use it enough to spend the money. If I was going to buy a GPS, I felt it was important enough to spend the bucks on a high end model.

I settled for this one being persuaded on it being a goldbox deal at a decent price and for the lifetime maps. I concluded that I would not use the GPS frequent enough to warrant purchasing a high end GPS model, and the lifetime maps costs between $60-90 for any company. I did not want my product outdated for months or years to come and did not think I would use the GPS often enough to want to purchase the lifetime maps for other units, so this perfectly satisfied my needs.

Well after using it significantly, the Magellan Roadmate 1424 is awesome.
The Pros:
-VERY QUICK IN TYPING YOUR DESTINATION. Sorry for the caps, but it is just amazingly good at narrowing down and auto-filling your destination. It will literally eliminate thousands of street possibilities, and just narrow down to actual street names within the city for you to choose. IT ONLY TAKES SECONDS to type your destination.
-Acquires signal fast
-The map on the GPS unit has a realistic look that I much prefer over the cartoony Garmin and TomToms.
-Great customer support
-Magellans software is very easy to use. It does all the work for you in fetching and installing updates.
-Product is loud and will tell you outloud the street names accurately. I was surprised on how well the unit was pronouncing some street names.

This is my third GPS and my first Magellan. It was calculated risk purchase on my part because of the way rating spread from best to worse. And after owning if for few months I could see why as I have experienced the best and not so best of this GPS.

The first hurdle is registering your GPS. How you go about obtaining free map update is not clearly explained. There is simplified one page instruction paper included that tells what you must do to get access to your free map update. You are to download and install the free Content Manager software (PC only. Sorry, no Mac) (The website is printed on the paper). Register your product with Content Manager. NOTE: Important to have your PN# ready. On mine, the PN# was located in a very small font, on the lower right corner of Lifetime Map Updates Included paper. You will follow the prompt of Content Manager and register your Magellan. After that you right click the Content Manager icon (not the shortcut) and click Check for Update Now and if goes well, the content manager software should show what latest map and firmware update you can download. If any other reviewers see error on my part then do please post correction.

I found the GPS easy to use and intuitive. When I first started using it I did notice the position lag that other reviewers have posted. However, the latest firmware update eliminated that issue completely. Once, the GPS froze on me. If that happens move the power button from on position to Reset position and keep it there until the GPS turns off.

I live in San Francisco Bay Area and unlike other reviewers I have been pretty satisfied with how it performed.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've owned and used a GPS on nearly a daily basis for over 5 years. In that time I've owned every major brand, including Garmin, Magellan, Tom Tom, and Nextstar. Each has had its merits, but overall I've liked the Garmin units the best. I've used this GPS side-by-side with my Garmin Garmin nüvi 265WT and have some observations that will hopefully help you choose the best GPS for you.

One of the primary uses for our family's GPS is finding restaurants, gas stations, stores, and other stops while on the road. The ease of finding this infromation through the GPS unit is my number one requirement. The Magellan makes this relatively simple, but requires going into a few menus to get to the right screen. The Garmin makes it simpler, with only one menu you need to enter. I really wish that GPS units would go the route of cell phones and let you put icons on the screen to quick-launch the features of the unit you use regularly, as well as a little google style search bar on the bottom to quick search for points of interest. Ah well, maybe in a few more years.

The Magellan's screen is easy to read, with very nice colors and a responsive touch screen. It is easy to read driving directions, and the prompts (visual and audible) are timely, and clear. The navigation functions of this unit are excellent--I'd give them a 9/10. However, I don't particularly like the menu layout. This may be because I am used to the Garmin, but after some careful comparisons, I can say it definitly takes more time to get to different features and setting within the GUI (graphic user interface) using this unit vs. the Garmin 265T.
