Customer Reviews

It works great and is very easy to use.
F. Harless
The Magellan, however, wanted me to take an odd, non-freeway route, with an estimated time of arrival of several minutes longer than the Garmin's calculation.
TechMSS
Overall, I would recommend this GPS to someone who is looking for a lower priced GPS with alot of very useful features.

I am very happy with the Magellan RoadMate 1440, it's just such a good GPS Navigator with all the bells and whistles!

The 1440 is very accurate at saving you time during trips, you can set it up to give you the fastest route or the shortest distance to your destination, which in many cases, is not the same route.

The highway lane assist is one of those features that you might not think you need until you start dealing with lower end GPS units that don't offer such features. Take it from a guy who used to own a tomtom One 3rd edition! This feature helps you make sure that you are choosing the correct lane to exit during a freeway interchange. You'll be glad you have this feature, trust me!

Just in case you were wondering, this unit is also compatible with the "Magellan Traffic Link" (sold Separately) which gives you FREE real time traffic alerts in exchange for small banner ads such as "AM/PM too much good stuff!" displayed on the top of your screen. a small price to pay for such a great service! In case of a traffic jam, a small timer will appear right next to the traffic warning sign, which tells you how many minutes it estimates you will be stuck in there. Click on the warning sign and it will give you a second route to follow. It will compare both routes for you and give you an estimated arrival time for each one. At this point you can opt to avoid traffic or deal with it. This is one of the best features of this unit and a must have for people who have to deal with hours of traffic on a daily basis! (yes, I live in California and traffic jams are a part of my life)

I purposely "got lost" many times to test how accurate the unit was.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Magellan 1440 is a 4.3 inch GPS unit equipped with maps of North America. I have a previous Magellan GPS unit and found this to be an improvement in several key ways as detailed below:

Pros:
1. The 4.3 inch screen does not sound like a significant upgrade from a 3.5 inch, but it is like going from a standard definition TV to a HD television system. It is a noticeable difference. Graphics are nice, and you get pop-ups showing the correct freeway ramps to take, plus the unit zooms in on tricky freeway intersections and the like. Nice feature.
2. Set-up: I found this to be quite easy and straightforward. In fact, all I did was power up the unit and let it find a satellite location. This does take a few minutes, so don't expect directions in moments. However, after the first satellite location, it only takes mere seconds for subsequent location finding. Power is scant, so you will need to power up the unit with either the included power cord for the car, or the USB cord.
3. The unit itself is about the width of your thumbnail, which is pretty small. A speaker is located in the back, with the USB cord on the bottom.
4. The holder which is included is far better constructed than my previous model. It feels more secure and stable, and the hook-up to the unit is a slide-in slot on the back rather than the previous holder which was like hands. (let me note I didn't have problems with that holder, but this feels more secure).
5. One touch is a feature that takes you to the things you would probably want beyond directions such as your route home, points of interest, gas and battery power and satellite strength. It is very easy to locate and works well when driving.
6. Points of interest include AAA listings and are fairly good.

This Magellan GPS is not a bad GPS. Indeed, for someone who has never used a GPS before, this might be a pleasant experience. But for the past two or three years, I have used a Garmin GPS. And compared to the Garmin, the Magellan is an exercise in frustration.

Let's just start from the beginning.

Satellite connection:

This thing took an inordinate amount of time to connect to the satellite signals when I first started it up. I don't know if this is because it was searching the entire world for the correct satellites, or what, but all the Garmin GPS devices I have used ask you to input your initial position manually, probably so that it doesn't have to go searching the entire sky to figure out which satellites to use and where you are. It took so long to connect, in fact, that I thought I had received a faulty unit.

On subsequent startups, the connection was much quicker, but still not as fast as my two-year-old Garmin.

Entering addresses:

Typing in your destination address is a bad experience. Why? Well, as you type each letter, the Magellan tries to figure out which street you are talking about. This is fine, but as soon as it figures out -- or thinks it figures out -- what street you probably mean, it jumps to a screen of street name suggestions. This would be fine if it paused briefly before accepting new input. But it doesn't, and so fast typists like me will inevitably choose a street or city without seeing what we have selected, because we are still typing the name. Then you have to go back and start again.

In comparison, the Garmin throws in a slight one second delay before allowing you to choose the intended street name from its list of suggestions. This prevents any accidental input.
