  • noticed they removed the 3D feature with firmware 2.2...I'm on my 4th Magellan now due to it bricking itself. Magellan blows...I'm suddenly a fan of Garmin.
  • Questions for PDN4ME: Is there any chance we will see the ability to pause during routing for restaurant breaks, etc... and then resume once back on route? Does the 1400/1470 have the ability to record a route and remember it the next time? Do th…
  • you can update to 2.05 rev 3 (currently on Magellan website) with no trouble...just follow the on-screen directions. But, once you update, you won't be able to flash back to 1.12. 2.05 looks very nice, but the one touch feature is a bit confusin…
  • Hi Maynard. I like 2.05, but the latest release does still have some quirks. Of all the releases so far, 1.10 and 1.12 were the most stable, IMO. If you don't mind your unit shutting off by itself after about 20 minutes of being in View map" mode…
  • Mine did the same thing. The 2.05 yours came with may not be the newest. Mine had 2.05 on it, but they have since released 2.05 release3. It should be on the website and it will correct the issues you mention above. Try it first...hate to give up a …
  • I have 2.05 rel 3 now. They have fixed the 1 touch problem. However, mine froze at the warning screen. It has never done that before. I turned it off and it came back up. It's definitely far from perfect...both of my 1440's still shut down spont…
  • The unit does function as a GPS. However, it will not save anything - POIs, home, previous, or anything to the address book. Tech support was unable to correct the problem. I'm going to use it for the next week or so and then get another RA#. The…
  • seems much better... But when are we going to get some different voice options? Tired of the 45 yr old smoker... ;)
  • Strange...but it is better than having it search for a signal for 5 minutes with 1.10 or loop itself with 1.15...so I'll patiently wait for the next great revision. Plea to Magellan: COME ON, GUYS! I know you can do it...we used Magellan GPS te…
  • Has anyone else using 2.05 experienced the unit shutting down on its own after starting up and going for about 20 minutes on "view">"Map"? I have two refurbs that both do it. If a destination is programmed in, it doesn't seem to do it.
  • Going back to 1.15 doesn't appear to be an option if you have 2.05, but this appears to be a temporary measure to stop the bleeding by Magellan. I'd be willing to bet there is a revision 2.06 or higher in 48 hrs.
  • I did have to pay for shipping to Smyrna, TN...about $10 at the UPS store. Also, turn-around time is about a week (as advertised)
  • Tried to load 2.04 to my 1440 and it stalled....Indicated to reset and hit the back button. When I turn the unit back on I get the rotating circle? It goes on for ever. Does this mean it is "bricked" I followed the instructions and I have done an …
  • Has anyone else had problems with their unit spontaneously shutting down with 2.04 and 2.05? I am still having the problem, but since 1.15 bricked my other two units I don't think I'll be going back to that.
  • Nevermind...they finally posted it: * 2nd Page of OneTouch offers more personalization. * Optimized interface for faster POI search. * Improved address search performance for addresses starting with N, S, E, W. * Added QWERTY keyboa…

  • Is there anywhere that lists a summary of the bugs the latest releases address?
  • the lack of a reset button is puzzling. It should work like the old jumper on a pc to wipe and reset the CMOS. Oh, well...Something to play with after warranty goes out.
  • Yep...I upgraded to 1.15 and both my 1440's were locked on the splash screen within a week. The refurbs had ver 2.04 on them which doesn't appear anywhere for a 1440, so not sure about it. Is this the same 2.04 that some are saying was released fo…
  • I can attest to the above post. I bought two of these and flashed them to the newest firmware. They each worked fine for about a week and then locked up on the start up splash screen. Magellan took them both back and replaced with refurbs that we…
