    We found this in Camping World just before we were leaving for a month long vacation. Once we decided to purchase it, we were able to get a break on shipping and received it overnight. All I can say is fantastic. Once you learn how to use it, I don't think we could have traveled in Canada without this. In 12 lanes of traffic, it consistently informed what lanes to be in and always seemed to give us accurate directions. If we happened to take an incorrect turn, it quickly recalculated the route. I would recommend this to anyone who travels. The larger screen is great as well. I cannot say enough positive things about this unit.

    This is really good for the RV. Big Screen, can be heard above the RV noise. I am used to the touchscreen on an iPhone, and this is not as good a touchscreen. Sometimes delays on what has been touched and then you have to undo and do again.

    Large clear screen. Easy to understand and use. Integrates well with IPhone for hands-free calling. Wonderful for RV use as it includes all the campgrounds for immediate selection when navigating and uses roads that are suitable for larger RVs. Great product for the price.

    I used the GPS on one major trip from St. Louid, Mo. To Las Vegas & back which included the addresses of 5 different family dwelings . The GPS did not miss a beat. I should note that this was in a car & not a truck pulling a fifth/wheel.

    April 26, 2013
    I purchased my GPS in June, 2012. Constant unexplained restarts required Magellan to replace my unit with a new one... no questions asked. The replacement unit had the same problem: unexplained restarts. There seems to be a problem with the operating system. Another support request via email to Magellan went unanswered. I'll try again. The GPS itself has great features and usability. Updates to the maps are, by nature, few and far between. They are seemingly out of date by the time they are released but that has been my experience with numerous other GPS's. Caution: In the year that I have used this GPS the low clearance warning has failed to worked in all cases.

    April 03, 2013
    When I first received the item I found it hard to get started with the information provided. It seemed to take forever to download the maps, that could have been the poor internet at the campgrounds where I was staying. It did not recognize my home address and kept trying to change it when I entered it. It did not work until I put the villiage address as the villiage next to mine. It did however take me home. My old GPS gave me my speed at all times which i liked and this one only gives it to me for a short time and then disappears. I need this as my speedometer is in KM per hour and when in the US I use MPH. I would like to see miles to destination on the screen. At one point it told me to turn right and it really meant go straight ahead subsequently I went 5 miles before I could get turned around and go back to my original point. I like the large screen but somtimes would like the lane placement and which one to take more defined. I am still learning about it and wished it would have an instruction book included with it as opposed to going on line to get the information needed. I also like the night the tone of the screen at night, easy on the eyes. I followed it to the letter from Florida to NS and it was not too bad, although I did change the routing to stay away from NYC. All and all 'not too shabby.

    This is a great GPS. Had one problem when I first received it and tried to update the maps. Magellan sent a new replacement uit very quickly. I like the interface because it is very intuitive. I have had Garnin GPSs before and they are not as easy to use as this one. I also like the Bluetooth feature which allow me to use my cell phone in a hands free mode. This is a great product. Pushing one button to find local diesel stations is really helpful.

    RV GPS

    December 06, 2012
    Purchased the Magellan RoadMate RV9165T-LM GPS in September 2012 - have taken it on 2 road trips - one for 1200 miles and the 2nd for 3000 miles. I purchased it and paid the extra money because I wanted something specific for the RV - it works well as far as GPS's go, but doesn't really help in the RV area. I even called Magellan and verified that I had the correct model for the RV. No matter what size of RV I plug in, it takes me down car routes, when it should take me down an RV or truck route. Even in Phoenix it took me right through town instead of the truck route, small towns, big towns, it doesn't matter, nothing specific for an RV. It tends to show gas stations where they aren't and not show when they are. When you search for gas stations it gives you a very good preview of what you have already passed, but not real good at what is coming up. Lanes in the big cities and the verbal guidance is very good, but a lot of the time takes you on a roundabout way of getting there, not exactly the route I would have picked for an RV. At the Grand Canyon it took me right through the parking lot and straight to the RV Park, exactly the opposite direction that the RV Park representative gave me when I was making the reservation. Bottom line, either way will get you there, although I would have definitely struggled a bit more without it. It does recalculate in a short time and quickly maps a new route instead of continualIy trying to get you to turn around back to the original route. I recommend it as a good guide, but don't use it as an absolute, you need to know your route and what variations can accommodate your RV.

    Well designed niche product

    December 04, 2012
    This product has worked flawlessly in our new motorhome. I like the bluetooth integration, the lifetime maps, and the real time traffic updates. While we haven't run into any issues where the traffic updates have kicked in to re-route us, it is comforting to know that we don't have traffic issues in our path. Only a couple of wishes for improvement. 1) Wish the speed limit would show while on a route, 2) Wish we could see where nearby fuel locations are while on the freeway and not just on the ramp, 3) wish fuel pricing was shown,

    Bought this unit 2 weeks prior to leaving on vacation. Didn't have much time to go over it completely, but the directions to and from my destination were amazing! Even when it recalculated the route it was right on. We have a class B+ 31' motorhome and it sat right on the dash without any problem. Even with some of the uneven, bumpy roads we were on, it didn't budge an inch. I really liked the fact that it gave you a 2 mile notice of your exit coming up and what lane to be in. Very satisfied with the unit and would recommend it.

    Great GPS


    0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
    June 18, 2012
    PROS: This GPS in my first upgrade since my first GPS I bought about 6 yrs ago. What a huge advance in feactures. This past week I use the GPS for a trip that took me through down town Dallas mix master. The GPS guided me throught the mix master with perfect lane assignment. Finding my destinations was quick and easy. POI is packed full of destinations to assist on any tripe one would make. The GPS was very accurate and showed the best routs, the way I would have taken. The large screen made it east to see and no problems with the screen being wash out by the light of the sun. The mounting arm is the best I have ever seen, its easily adjustable. It worked with both my Honda Civic and my Toyota Tundra. CONS: In the last year or so Texas has increased its speed limits and many of the speed limit desplayed on the GPS were too low, also additions to the George Bush Toll Road in Eastern Dallas County had not been added to the mapping software. I'm look forward to seeing how long it will take Magellan to upgrade its mapping software. Since it's free I wont have to pay for it, great feature. One last annoyance was my own home address was not in its data base. My road was in the maping software but the street address number did not go high enough. Problem was solved by progaming the GPS with my Current Location, but make me wonder how may specific address I will not find in the future.

    We took this RV GPS on our first trip last week-end. It was easy to use and the nice big screen is great for an RV. It was a bit heavy, and even the nice big arm that comes with it would fall over. However, we solved this by attaching it to the window and leaining it on the dash. This work quite well. The set up is easy. We haven't had a chance to use the avoidances that we set up specific for our RV, but am looking forward to this to avoid tunnels where you cannot go through with propane. The bell that signals when you are to turn is handy so that it avoids confusion on the exact road to turn. I would defintely recommend this GPS for RV users since most brands aren't made specifically for RV use.

    We bought this GPS about 5 months ago. On my first trip it locked up on me twice and it also beeped and warned me if I was going 5 miles an hour over the speed limit. Another thing it did was try to take me down the truck route in Los Angele's. As I grew up their I know I didn't need to do this. This is the reason why it's only getting a 4 rating. When I got home I did a software update and adjusted the setting's. Shortly after that we went on a month long trip to various states without a single issue. I love this thing. I almost sent it back after my first trip but now im glad I didn't.

    I hear that this unit is fantastic. I would think Camping World and Good Sams club would combine their efforts to get this to the customer at the lowest price possible. After all it's a huge promotion for Camping World and Good Sam. Nothing but a win win. You should try and make the price so low that every camper in your club would have to buy this. . We would continue to support both corporations. Some times I don't understand Corporate thinking.. Think about it guys. When ever we pass a Camping World any place in the country our Magellan would light up and tell us LOOK CAMPING WORLD 2 MILES AHEAD. I would think as a camper Himmmmm wonder what I need from Camping World. Then as a Good Sam Member I would see their logo on the screen and think Might as well sleep her tonight. You guys need an advertising agent. or a customer service agent. I am available if you would like.
