Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T Navigator Review

Last Updated: 30.09.22

1.Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T


Main advantage


The Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T is designed for those who like it big in terms of size and features. With its large, high-definition 7-inch screen, the intuitive touchscreen interface is even easier to use. Pre-programmed maps and other important road data make it easy for you to find your way, even with little-to-no-internet connectivity. With the ability to take into account your vehicle’s dimensions, weight, and Hazmat type when looking for routes to take, you’ll never have to worry about finding a way around narrow spaces.


Main disadvantage


The Magellan consumes a lot of power when turned on (which is why it has only about 30 minutes of battery life), so if you’re planning to have it plugged into a computer to perform map updates, you’ll need to make sure that it’s fully charged; customers have complained about having to restart the update process due to the device losing power midway. If, however, your computer can supply enough power to the device, it will automatically charge as it updates itself.

Never Lose Your Way

With pre-programmed maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, as well as 6 million points of interest for parking, accommodations, and other services specifically for RVs, you’ll never lose your way when you’re with the Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T. Simply enter your RV’s height, width, weight, and Hazmat type, and let the Magellan find the best possible routes to help you get to your destination without ever having to go through annoyingly narrow bridges, roads, and other places. The large 7” display and voice prompts make sure that you don’t miss a turn in every drive. If you’re tired of taking unnecessarily long and tedious drives, the Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T might just be your perfect travel companion.

Easy Mounting

While large displays are great for quick and easy map glances and a little fiddling on the road, mounting them can be a real pain due to the lack of available space on the windshield or the fact that it could block the scenic view from your RV. Fortunately, the RoadMate Pro 9165’s extension mount makes it easy for you to place your navigator on your dashboard or windshield securely, with a flexible but stable extension arm to help you find that perfect viewing angle. The extension mount is easy to attach and detach to the device, making it easy for you to remove or mount your device as needed.


Packed with Functionality

It’s never a good idea to take calls when you’re driving, but if you absolutely have to, the Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity can come in handy. Another nifty feature of this device is its capability to analyze the most efficient way to go through multiple spots on a single trip. With this time-saving feature, you can run errands without guzzling up your gas with inefficient routing. If you need to save your trip data, Magellan’s OneTouch™ feature allows you to store and retrieve trip data easily. If you’re looking for a GPS navigator with plenty of added features without the added price, you can’t go wrong with the Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T (.
