Accessories are limited, no AC to DC adptor. Co said back ordered, no retail stores carry the accessories. Be warned: Short lifespan The Magellan RoadMate 1220 worked perfectly for about 6 months after I purchased it. At that point.

This is a small gps unit.  Best for occasional family use.  It offers great features for the price, however, for regular use. This is my second GPS unit. The unit is small enough to fit in ones pocket. Easy to store away after each use. Easy instructions, tried it on a 120 mile round trip.used fastest four lane going and shortest two lane on the return trip.

Installation Instructions
Installation of the Magellan RoadMate is simple and easy. The hardest part will be picking the best position.

Selecting the Position

A few tips on selecting a suitable position. Mount the Magellan RoadMate in a place where it can be easily seen and will not interfere with your view of the road. The Magellan RoadMate should be mounted in such a way that the aerial, (located in the top of the receiver), has an unobstructed view of the sky through the windscreen. Make sure that the Magellan RoadMate or any cabling will not be disturbed if the airbags are activated.

Cleaning the Area

Use the alcohol pad that comes with the Magellan RoadMate to clean the area on the windscreen or dashboard that has been selected for mounting the Magellan RoadMate. Let the area dry completely.

Attaching the Cradle

Line up the two tabs on the cradle to the indents on the bottom of the Magellan RoadMate. Swivel the cradle up so that it is flush against the back of the receiver and snaps into place.
Please note that the mounting bracket supplied with the Magellan RoadMate may be different from the one shown in this document.

Adjustable Mount

Line up the two tabs on the adjustable mount with the holes on the back of the Magellan RoadMate. Once the adjustable mount is flush with the Magellan RoadMate, push the receiver down until it locks in place with the adjustable mount.
Securing the Mount to the Windscreen
Ensure that the lever at the base of the adjustable mount is in the up position. Place the base of the mount firmly over the area of the windscreen to be used. Push the lever at the base of the mount all the way down until it snaps into place. Carefully let go of the assembly, ensuring that it is securely mounted.
Adjusting the Mount for Optimum Viewing
Loosen the adjustment locking knobs and position the Magellan RoadMate for optimum viewing. Once set, tighten the locking knobs. (Never attempt to adjust the mount while driving.)

Connecting Power

Plug the end of the vehicle power adapter into a 12V DC cigarette lighter socket in the vehicle. Connect the other end to the Magellan RoadMates USB connector as shown. (Note: some vehicles supply power to the cigarette lighter socket only when the ignition is on.)

Security

We recommend that the Magellan RoadMate is not left in full view when unattended as it may attract thieves.

Country Selection

Depending on the Magellan RoadMate you are using, the preloaded map may cover several countries. When using the Magellan RoadMate, you must ensure that the correct country is first selected. You can only search for addresses or POIs in the selected country. To select the country, follow the directions below: From the Main Menu, tap on the right arrow to access the second page of the Main Menu. Tap User Options. Tap Destination Country.

Full description

Designed for simple, efficient and reliable vehicle navigation, the affordable Magellan RoadMate 1200 offers full navigation function and an amazingly easy and uncluttered interface. Unlike other navigation devices with complicated lists that require scrolling through menus you can find virtually anywhere in seconds without reading the instructions. The color touch screen provides instant access to navigation features. Exclusive QuickSpell technology searches available destinations and corrects spelling so you can enter addresses and select Points of Interest with just a few touches of the screen. Sleek, thin, rugged and compact, it's easy to take your Magellan RoadMate 1200 with you wherever you travel. The integrated rechargeable battery provides up to 3 hours of navigation when power is unavailable.
