The Magellan RoadMate 1470 4.7 Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator is another staple GPS delivered from one of the best companies in the GPS industry: Magellan. The increased screen size, and ultra-thin design make this new GPS easily confusable with your iPhone. Just remember, iPhone has the Hulu app.

You don’t realize how small most GPS’s are until you see what a 4.7 inch color touchscreen looks like on your dashboard. This device is at the peak of ease-of-use and packed to the gills with features including, AAA TourBooks, highway lane assists, spoken street names, multi-destination routings, and pre-loaded maps of North America.

The Magellan OneTouch exclusive technology lets you personalize search icons and easily bookmark your most popular, or favorite destinations so you can pull them up with speed and ease. Within the GPS are 6 million points of interest, expanded NAVTEQ maps, text-to-speech, a new intuitive user interface, a QuickSpell feature, Auto NightView, and Live Traffic Info.

The Magellan RoadMate 1470 4.7 Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator is cooler than your current GPS, and far more logical than using that navigator app on your phone. The price is right at $200, and we could really find no complaints about this unit. 5/5 stars.  If you are looking for a good deal on the Magellan RoadMate 1470 GPS you can get one by clicking on this link.
