 The Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM is a higher-end automobile GPS model targeted at frequent or business travelers. Physically, its main features include a 5" touchscreen with WVGA display mode as well as a Wi-Fi transmitter, enabling web browsing (with an included browser), on-the-fly updates and downloads, so long as a network is available. Also, this is the first Megallan model to feature the "TourDirector" function, which helps plan trips or destination visits in advance, based on attractions, events or points of interest in an area. This RoadMate has free map updates and free traffic conditions, neither of which require a subscription. The screen rotates automatically when the device is rotated. The included destinations are from the AAA Tour Book. Other standard Magellan features include highway lane assistance, speed limit warnings, turn-by-turn routing, and highway exit points of interest.
