Magellan RoadMate 1424


The Magellan RoadMate 1424 is one of Magellan's most popular 4.3” models, thanks to a bargain basement price. Despite the fact that this is an entry-level unit, it comes with preloaded maps of the entire US and Canada, as well as Magellan's popular...

Gets me from A to B


Very decent unit. I think everyone should just consider selling your old unit once it hits the 1-2 year mark while it has some value and just replace. I can't really see the point in paying for updates when you can "trade up" for about the same or...

I had a choice, spend $60 on upgrading my old unit, or spend $64.99 on this unit (on sale). Good choice. Nice thin design compared to my other unit, good solid suction to the windshield

Useless Junk


Stay far away from the 4.3inch magellan models. The touchscreen on the lasts only until it's past warranty and then dies. No touchscreen means no controls. Just a paperweight now.

Really good, much better of a menu than a TOMTOM

Distances are not perfectly accurate, maps need to be updated. Tried to go to a "sushi boat" ended up at a "sushi train

Not A Garman!


I have been using my Uncle's cheap-O' 3.5" Garman GPS for a few weeks now, and it is superior to this unit as far as I'm concerned. Way more accurate and alot easier to use. Should Of Bought A Garman!

For basic use it's O.K., nice size screen, comes with needed accessories, can't beat the price

It's not as accurate as I expected... I have been testing this unit for two days now, and I have missed two turns, or arrival locations so far because this unit is too slow to react in complex road situations. Not good enough for what I need
