It's a great navigator for folks who tow recreational vehicles such as fifth-wheels and boats, too.

Hit the road

You'll get detailed maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, plus 6 million points of interest so you can find nearby RV parking, services, and accommodations. Enter your vehicle's height, width, weight, and hazmat type, and this navigator will find the best possible routes, avoiding narrow bridges, tunnels, and other potential hazards.

You can follow the action on the navigator's 5" touchscreen display, or listen to the voice prompts that announce actual street names at turns. When you're in unfamiliar towns, Magellan's Landmark Guidance features makes it easier to find upcoming turns by pointing out easy-to-spot landmarks and buildings — for instance, you might hear "turn right at Friendly Cleaners" instead of "turn right on Central Avenue."

Lane guidance in the contiguous 48 states also saves you from dangerous last-second maneuvering when you need to make an important turn. You can also get audible and visual alerts to keep you from exceeding the posted speed limit on most roads.

RV-friendly extras

The RoadMate RV5365T-LMB includes U.S. and Canada campground information from Trailer Life Directory along with Good Sam Club discount locations — if you're a Good Sam Club member, you'll know if you can enjoy your discounts before you exit the highway. You'll also get info on Wi-Fi® availability, pet friendliness, and helpful customer ratings. Magellan's special "Exit POIs" let you know about destinations right by highway exits, so you don't have to travel far from the main roads to find the best stopping points.

This RoadMate also features a dedicated input for a rear-view camera, to help you get in and out of tight spots. Once you connect your camera, the navigator will automatically show you what's behind you when you shift into reverse.

Free lifetime traffic and map updates

The RoadMate RV5365T-LMB offers free lifetime traffic alerts, providing real-time traffic information in many areas with no additional subscription fees. You can see on the display where congestion might slow your trip, and pick an alternate route around it. You also get up to 4 map updates per year for the life of the navigator, so you won't be surprised by recently closed campgrounds or other important destinations that may have changed.

Traffic camera alerts

Magellan also includes a free one-year subscription to PhantomALERT, which gives you audible and visual warnings of approaching traffic and red-light cameras along your route. For an additional fee, you can receive alerts for known enforcement areas (speed traps), as well as road locations with high accident rates.

Bluetooth® and more

You can make and receive hands-free calls with your compatible phone through the RoadMate's built-in Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Route optimization helps you plan excursions by showing you the most efficient way to hit multiple spots on the same trip.
