Since my old GPS needed a new map update, I decided to purchase this GPS since the map update on my old one cost just as much. Let me tell you that I am very glad I made that decision. The Magellan Roadmate 1400 is very easy and simple to use. Out of the box I hooked it up to my computer and started charging it while I installed the Magellan software and tried to update its map with the one free map update. There was an issue where the update wasn't being recognized, but a call to Magellan support got that fixed within a day. It took about thirty minutes to update the device and I was finally ready to hit the road. This GPS has all the features you would want; lane assist, road names spoken instead of just left and right, and a bing sound when you need to make a turn. All in all this is one great GPS to have.
