MicroSD card slot for expanding storage
The Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM is a higher-end automobile GPS model targeted at frequent or business travelers. Physically, its main features include a 5" touchscreen with WVGA display mode as well as a Wi-Fi transmitter, enabling web browsing (with an included browser), on-the-fly updates and downloads, so long as a network is available.
Lifetime map & traffic updates
The Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM is one of the latest GPS navigation devices that offers free lifetime traffic and map updates, built-in Wi-Fi, AAA travel resources and a database of 6 million points of interest. It also has a large 5-inch touchscreen, text-to-speech and wireless Web browsing.
RV & Large vehicle features
The Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T is a RV/large vehicle GPS with a large 7-inch touchscreen, a 6 million points of interest database with Good Sam and real-time traffic. It has features geared towards large vehicles, like the ability to plan routes that can handle your vehicle's size and type.
6 Million of points of interest
Magellan probably does not expect the Magellan RoadMate RV9145-LM to be one of their best-selling devices since not everyone owns an RV. But Magellan currently has that target audience locked in as 7-inch GPS devices are rare and tablets with GPS functions simply lack in features and are not very accurate. RV owners get a wonderful treat from the route planning to the Good Sam Trailer Life Directory.
