GPS navigation for the long haul

You're a trucker with no time to get lost, because time is money. Magellan's RoadMate Commercial 5370T-LMB portable navigator helps ensure you'll make every pick-up and drop-off efficiently. It offers a convenient 5" touchscreen for viewing the maps, plus custom settings and tools that help you manage your time behind the wheel.

When you do get back home, you can use this versatile navigator in your car, too.

See the road ahead

The navigator's bright 5" color touchscreen display gives you a great view of Magellan's maps of Canada, Puerto Rico, and the entire U.S., plus you'll have over six million searchable points of interest at your disposal when it's time for a pit stop. Magellan's special "Exit POIs" give you a quick heads-up for destinations right by highway exits, including restaurants, weigh stations, and truck stops. Once you find a truck stop, you can pull up a list of services offered such as showers, Wi-Fi®, truck scales, and more. It also includes Landmark Guidance for those who prefer not to squint to find tiny street signs for upcoming turns: you'll hear "turn left at the Federal Bank," instead of "turn left on Sullivan Street."

The RoadMate also features a dedicated A/V input for a rear-view camera, to help you get in and out of tight spots more safely. Just add a rear-view camera, and the navigator will automatically show you what's behind you when you shift into reverse.

Rig-friendly details

The navigator's Information Dashboard keeps you updated on essential driving info, such as your direction, elevation, and truck speed limits. This Magellan will let you know if you exceed the speed limit for trucks, so you can adjust accordingly. You can also log trip information such as mileage and hours right through the navigator, and it'll even help you keep track of state mileage and IFTA fuel usage. Simply export the logs to your computer when you get off the road. It'll even allow for multiple driver logins if you're driving with a buddy.

A clear path to your destination

Once you input your rig's specs, the navigator can calculate routes for you based on vehicle height, weight, width, length, and hazmat restrictions. Text-to-speech voice prompts say the actual names of roads at upcoming turns, and you'll hear them easily over engine noise through the extra-loud built-in speaker. You'll also get lane assistance and junction view that'll keep you in the correct lane when you're approaching complicated intersections.

Lifetime maps and traffic

The navigator offers free lifetime traffic alerts with no subscription fees, providing real-time traffic information in most urban areas. You can see upcoming congestion on the display, so you can pick an alternate route around it. You also get up to four map updates per year for the life of the navigator, to better help you avoid routing to recently closed truck stops 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.

More road-friendly extras

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. Magellan's OneTouch™ menu lets you save your favorite destinations and searches so you can pull them up without scrolling through multiple screens.
