Magellan: An Ideal Travel Companion for Your RV
Magellan, a leader of innovative GPS devices for vehicles, fitness, outdoor and mobile navigation, now offers Magellan® RoadMate® RV GPS navigators that are packed with safety, convenience and travel planning features to make RV road trips enjoyable and stress-free!
The Magellan RoadMate family of RV GPS devices, available in 7-inch and 5-inch configurations, are pre-loaded with the Good Sam Campground Directory and Good Sam discount locations to provide valuable RV travel resources featuring comprehensive North America campground information and amenities to facilitate locating available facilities, RV services, pet-friendly campgrounds and parks, tent spaces, Wi-Fi and more.
For Class A RVs or consumers who are more comfortable with a larger screen size, the Magellan RoadMate 9165T-LM RV GPS features a 7-inch touch screen. Versatile, heavy-duty extension mounts designed for vehicles with deep dashboards are also included to provide fully-adjustable, personalized comfort and safe viewing. For Class B and Class C RVs with smaller dashboard spaces or those who tow other recreational vehicles such as fifth wheel trailers or boats, Magellan offers a 5-inch touch screen RoadMate 5365T-LMB device. Both models feature high-definition touch screens that adjust color and contrast for the most optimal visibility.
When preparing for their trips, Magellan RoadMate RV GPS navigators make it easy for RVers to set up profile data about their vehicle’s dimensions, vehicle type, hazmat materials, as well as navigational preference so they can customize the best routes.
During trips, Magellan RoadMate RV devices help drivers keep their eyes on the road with Spoken Street Name guidance to announce street names and give turn-by-turn directions. Integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology enables RV drivers to safely talk hands-free when the GPS is paired with a compatible Bluetooth phone.
In addition to free lifetime map updates and free lifetime traffic alerts, the Magellan RoadMate RV 9165T-LM and 5365T-LMB GPS navigators include Magellan’s latest high-end features to make navigation safer and easier.
• ‘Junction View’ displays a realistic image of the road and highway signs to help guide RV drivers to the correct lane that the vehicle needs to be in for safe merging and exits during their trip.
• ‘Next Turn’ visibility prepares drivers with valuable information about which lane to stay in or enter when approaching the next turning location.
• ‘Landmark Guidance’ gives RV drivers an easier way to navigate to their destinations by telling them to turn at familiar landmarks such as gas stations, stores or other large, easily-seen places instead of only street names that may be hard to locate and read.
• One year of free service is included to ‘Traffic Camera Alerts,’ powered by PhantomALERT™, to warn drivers about upcoming red light and speed cameras on their route.
Continuing to enhance the driver safety and peace-of-mind to see behind their RV, the Magellan RoadMate RV GPS navigators are compatible with Magellan’s award-winning Wireless Back-up Camera. When the vehicle is in reverse, the GPS will automatically switch from navigation mode to become a rear-view monitor that allows the driver to see what is behind the vehicle including children, pets and toys, or for assistance when parking.
