Top Customer Reviews
* 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.Read more ›
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.
When I originally posted this review, I felt the Magellan RoadMate 5175TLM GPS deserved 4 stars.Read more ›
I always like the bell sound before each turn (you have the option of selecting different sounds or turning it off). Rerouting is quick. I haven't tried the WiFi capability yet. Tour Director is great. I found out with the help of a Magellan rep that you can add personal addresses to a tour by creating the tour with predefined places first, 'optimize' it, then click 'GO' to begin your journey. Then go to the Main Menu and click on 'Edit Trip'. Now you can add any personal addresses or personal entries saved in the Address Book and 'optimize' the tour again.
I have no problems with the accuracy of the maps, so far. It always got me to where I wanted to go, so far. Be aware with the option(s) you select to get you to your destination ('avoid toll roads', 'shortest path', 'fastest time', etc.) as those particular algorithms will be used throughout your journey unless you go in and choose a different option.
Remember to also buy a separate charger (not included with the GPS) so you can plan your trip at home. Bon voyage and good luck with finding the right GPS for you.
