I have both the Maverick and the Taylor 1474. I found the range on the 1474 to be excellent (about 400 feet) as opposed to about 50 feet for the Maverick in my siutation. Not sure what the problem with the 1474 is but they work fine for me. But Amazon is probably the place to look for Taylors. Their price of $10 on the non-remote model can't be beat.
