Introduction

Magellan is a company with a long history in GPS navigation; they first opened their doors in 1989 with the launch of the first Block II GPS satellites. Since then, they’ve been providing a wide range of GPS receivers, both for vehicle navigation and for pedestrian travel, on road and off. Today we’ll be taking a look at the RoadMate 5175T-LM, a vehicle navigation unit that promises to add a few new twists to the usual formula.

Packaging and A Closer Look

This is the sort of packaging I like, no distractions, no misleading marketing-speak, just what you need to know about the device, and a large photo of the device in action. The bit about WiFi support is the new wrinkle this device brings to the table, and we’ll explore that in more detail later on.

Again, a quick overview of the product features, with a few screenshots. The size of the screenshots makes them difficult to make out, but with packaging this compact, it’s unavoidable.

Opening the box, we see a sticker on the underside of the lid providing support information, which is a nice touch. Underneath the manual, the device itself sits in a plastic wrap.
