Our take on the Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T-LM by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
RV owners are a different breed of driver — their love of the open road is strong, but so is their desire for the conveniences of home. Magellan designed the RoadMate Pro 9165T-LM portable navigator to make it easy to get from destination to destination, whether you're in your RV all the time or for a short while each year. You'll enjoy a generous 7" display for easy-to-follow guidance, plus free lifetime traffic updates in most metropolitan areas, and free lifetime map updates to help keep you current. Best of all, Magellan partnered with the RV specialists at The Good Sam Club, making the RoadMate Pro an invaluable assistant for your travels.
A safe home for your navigator
The RoadMate Pro 9165T-LM includes a Heavy Duty Extension Mount to help secure it to your RV's windshield or dash. The mount's extension arm lets you maneuver the 7" touchscreen into the best position for easy access while driving.
Explore the road with confidence
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 big display, or listen to the voice prompts that announce actual street names at turns.
Added benefits for road warriors
Magellan makes it more convenient to find stops near highway exits, so you don't waste time on a long trip. Lane guidance in the contiguous 48 states also saves you from dangerous last-second maneuvering when you need to make an important turn. This navigator also 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.
Free lifetime traffic and map updates
The RoadMate Pro 9165T-LM 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, to better help you avoid routing to recently closed campgrounds or other important destinations that may have changed.
More extras like Bluetooth®
You can make and receive hands-free calls with your compatible phone through the RoadMate Pro 9165T-LM's built-in Bluetooth wireless connectivity. And you'll find that route optimization takes the stress out of running errands by showing you the most efficient way to hit multiple spots on the same excursion. Magellan's OneTouch™ menu lets you save your favorite destinations and searches so you can pull them up without scrolling through multiple screens.
You can connect a rear-view camera to the 9165T-LM through its built-in A/V input and use the navigator as a screen. Magellan does not include a connection cable for the A/V input.
