Magellan Roadmate 1412 GPS Review

It's not difficult to see why the Magellan RoadMate 1412 Portable GPS seems to be a favorite among drivers. But is it really all that it's cracked up to be? I'm going to give you some unbiased information on this unit and let you be the judge.

If you're looking for an entry-level GPS system that is easy to use but feature-rich, you will be pleasantly surprised by this unit. One of the dominant features that many satisfied customers seem to appreciate is the larger widescreen format in this navigation unit. But far and above, its most redeeming feature seems to be its low price.

If you like your GPS unit chock-full of information this Magellan is what you're looking for. It's got an ultra thin form factor weighing in at only 8 ounces. The Magellan's widescreen format is still 4.3 inches and sports and anti-glare coaching.

Some key features

This pocket-sized powerhouse comes complete with a 4.3 inch touch-screen and the ability to search over 6 million points of interest. Of course, the unit is packed with quite a few smart new features to help the traveler pick up their destination and choose how to get to virtually anywhere with ease.

Practical application

The Magellan RoadMate 1412 is an above average GPS unit with a great many features sold at an entry-level price. Its slim design and widescreen format makes for easy viewing while negotiating unfamiliar territory. The unit locks in on satellite signals quickly although your initial use may seem a little sluggish. This might be due to the GPS unit initializing.

What they are saying

"it is compact and easy-to-use. I just wish it had a booklet for instructions instead of having to get the instructions on the Internet."

"Must have for new drivers like me, talks you to the destination. It has a comprehensive list of points of interest arranged in the order of driver want it."

For the price the Magellan 1412 is a fairly successful navigation unit. If you are looking to get your first GPS unit without the expensive fancy bells and whistles, this should be a good starter model. This model gives you navigation information by voice and on-screen prompts. It does have some outstanding features including the millions of "points of interest" data. Its large screen format gives it a friendly and helpful nudge to the uninitiated. Getting around town should be a breeze.
