Nearly unresponsive touch screen.

This system does not consider traffic conditions when it recalculates alternative route to save time.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Electronics such as a GPS always have some good features. . . and then there are some which you wish it had. But unlike other electronics, with a GPS, the main thing is whether or not it can get you from point A to point B without a problem. I'm happy to report that the Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM does that well. Some might say "duh. . . it's a GPS. . .of course it can". But that's not necessarily so. I've had four different GPS systems, and one, the Garmin Nuvi could not find its way out of a wet paper bag. From constantly telling me to drive the wrong-way down a one-way street. . . to taking forever to "recalculate" the route if you pass a turn. (You literally have to pull-over and stop and wait for it to recalculate. So far, the Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM has not sent me the wrong-way down a one-way street. . . and it's very quick to "recalculate". Having said that, here is my take on some of the features of this unit:

Pros:
* Lifetime map updates. What a GREAT feature.
* Street names are spoken
* A bell rings when you're about to turn left or right (but you can change it in the options)
* You can both plug-in the unit via USB to update, or use WiFi to update
* You can operate in "portrait" or "landscape" mode. Though . . . quite honestly. . I don't know why you would want to operate it in "portrait" mode, but you can if you like.
* It's a very flat (skinny) device.
* Large 5" screen. Though the screen is 5" diagonally, the unit measures 5.5" X 3.5". There is a stainless steel "frame" around the screen, which looks good, and feels good also.
* Bright, crisp screen. . . though, like with many such devices, it's not all that easy to see in bright sunlight.
* When entering an address, you can start with the zip-code.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
**Updated 08/31/2012**
This GPS just gets worse and worse. I've now downgraded the stars to just 1 for this piece of junk. I've owned two different Magellan GPS devices and I honestly do not understand how they stay in business because they do not make good GPS devices. The first one I had was approximately half a mile off on the GPS position, which rendered it fairly useless for navigating in areas you aren't familiar with. This one is just unresponsive. It should not take 10 minutes for the unit to finally register the key you've pressed. It should not take 10 minutes or longer for it to recalculate a route when you veer off course. It should not lock up every other time you try to select a destination.

The traffic updates are now non-existent. I use the original car charging cable that came with this GPS, and I no longer see any traffic information on this device at all, although other GPS devices can find traffic info for the same route at the same time.

I strongly advise customers to avoid the Magellan 5175T-LM at all costs. This is the worst GPS I've ever used and it is completely unreliable. Worse, its unresponsiveness make it a significant frustration and distraction on the road, rendering it actually dangerous.

I'm now looking to replace this GPS, most likely with a Garmin. My uncle lent me his Garmin to see how I like that brand before purchasing it and it is an absolute breath of fresh air after suffering with this Magellan GPS for so long. Between the bad device and the lack of support from Magellan, I would caution consumers against buying that brand, not just this model.

**Updated 05/25/2012**
When I originally posted this review, I felt the Magellan RoadMate 5175TLM GPS deserved 4 stars.

Magellan RoadMate 5175T Traveler is a defective system. This system freezes very often, takes long time to recalculate new routes and upload new maps and updates, and works so slow in big cities such as Los Angels area. Maps in National Parks and Highway Speed Limits are not updated.

This system can cause you having accidents if you try to follow the system because of slowness of this system. This system freezes often when you are driving that makes you reboot the system and gives you frustrations. Following this also causes you making immediate sharp turns, stopping, being lost and more.

This system does not consider traffic conditions when it recalculates alternative route to save time. Traffic conditions are calculated after the alternative way shows. Therefore, even thought you choose to go alternative ways there will be another heavy traffics.

Pro: Travel Estimate Time is accurate.

This Machine is very dangerous to have in your car.

Pros: None. Seriously.

Cons: Took at least 10 minutes each time to program an address due to sluggishness. Often had to turn the unit off and then on again because it would "hang." Nearly unresponsive touch screen. Directions lag behind my actual position.

Summary: This happened to me with 2 units!

When I attempted to contact customer service the first several times, they told me to have patience and that a fix was coming. When my patience grew thin several months later, they offered to replace it with a unit that costs half as much. Then they simply stopped responding to anything, much like the GPS unit.

It took a complaint to the BBB to get a response. The response was sending me a new unit. That has EXACTLY the same problems as the unit I was complaining about.

Essentially I bought a $300 doorstop. It has no other use. The most satisfaction I've gotten out of it was smashing it on a rock today.

Save your money and buy something that works.
