Magellan RoadMate 1470 has two main features - the AAA Tour Book as well a wide screen up to 4.7 inches.
However, this GPS device is not designed with Bluetooth connection, as well as other certain high end features such as 3D views of building. The Magellan RoadMate is considered as an average GPS navigation device.
The box-piece comes with the RoadMate 1470 GPS unit pre-loaded with maps of the Canada, United States as well as Puerto Rico, Vehicle power adapter, Windshield mount, USB cable, Adhesive disc for dash mounting and the User handbook.
The installation process is quite simple and easy, while Magellan's updated windshield mount turns to be a welcome improvement over the previous version of the mounts.
It comes with fewer moving parts to break, and the device is light-weight and simple in construction, while the new mount holds the GPS securely in place.
It is pretty easy to remove, so it is advisable to remove the remove GPS device as well as the windshield mount whenever you park your vehicle in public places and roam about.
However, the bad news is that Magellan still continues to use the same old passive mount, which requires you to connect the power cable directly to the GPS, and it can't be plugged on to the windshield mount.
On the contrary, the other good GPS units with active mounts from the house of Garmin and TomTom allow you to connect the power plug to the windshield mount.
Consequently the process of docking or undocking the GPS from mount becomes a snap, without really messing with wires every single time.
Overall, it is a mediocre GPS device, but it renders satisfactory performance. It bears a price tag of about $197.49.
