Owners Guide

Before using the suction cup mount on your windshield, check the state and local laws and ordinances where you drive. Some state laws prohibit drivers from using suction mounts on their windshields while operating motor vehicles. Other state laws allow the suction mount to be located only in specific locations on the windshield. Many other states have enacted restrictions against placing "non-transparent material" on the windshield or placing objects on the windshield in locations that obstruct the driver's vision.

Have used this device for a couple of months now and my only, but major, complaint is that when you power on the device, it always takes at least a minute to get a lock on it's current location, otherwise it will start giving directions for your next destination from the prior location where you last powered it on. This can be a little bit annoying when you are leaving home and punch in a destination, only to see that the first instructions make no sense until you cancel out, and wait for the gps lock, then re-initiate the trip.

Besides that, the user interface is easy to use, didn't think i would use the directory of locations too much but surprisingly it came in handy on a recent trip where I needed to find some local spots, and the voice and upcoming turn warnings are clear.

I had the opportunity to evaluate the Magellan 1475T. I found it easy to use and intuitive.I found the user interface easier to use than others I have tried (especially Garmin).Magellan did a great job of minimizing the keystrokes necessary to use it. The display is bright and easy to read. The slim profile allows you to carry it in a shirt pocket. I did find the advertisements on the screen to be slightly annoying.

Unfortunately, product descriptions do not tell you what features it doesn't have, so don't take anything for granted.

1. It does not have an audio output jack. (This was a disqualifier for me.)
2. It does not have a text screen that lists things like distance, speed, eta, time remaining.(These numbers can be viewed one at a time by repeated button pushes.)
3. It does not allow you to load routes from a computer.
4. It does not display photos or play music as some models do.

I don't mean to dwell on the negatives. It is a great value.

I bought a Roadmate 1475T at Costco and used it for awhile. Good overall but it did not identify some locations. I then tried to get a software update directly from the Magellan website. Much to my chagrin there are NO upgrades for Apple/Safari users!! I sent note off to their customer support team and they responded:

Thank you for contacting Magellan Technical Support. We apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing now. As I understand, you are looking for updates for your Roadmate 1475T that will work with an Apple computer. Unfortunately, as of this time, Magellan devices and software are not yet compatible with a Mac computer. We have already forwarded this concern to the correct department since we have many customers who use Mac computers. We will make another follow-up on your behalf. For the meantime, may I just verify if there is really no way for you to have access or use a computer with Windows XP or Windows Vista OS (Operating System)?

Bottom line: If you use an Apple with Safari you are out of luck to get updates to your maps.
