Magellan brings you the all new RoadMate 5245T-LM. This 5” GPS navigator not only comes with features such as Free Lifetime Map Updates and Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts, but adds exciting new high end features.
The new features make navigation easier and your trip more enjoyable. With the all new Landmark Guidance your routing instructions use landmarks instead of street names, making it a more intuitive way to navigate. You’ll hear instructions like “Turn left at the Gas Station”. The upgraded Junction View generates realistic images of freeway signs and arrows guiding you to the correct lane to make driving easier, safer and less stressful.
Traffic Camera Alerts by PhantomALERT are included at no additional charge for one year! These audio warnings alert you to fixed red light and speed cameras. This is verified crowd source data that you refresh on your unit by the free Content Manager from Magellan. You can even become one of the many reporters on the street by submitting your own discoveries or rating the reliability of the alerts you are shown. Premium content is available for an extra cost which includes blackspots (high accident areas), school zones and dangerous intersections.
Best Parking is a great feature that makes parking in the city a much easier affair. Also updated by Content Manager, Best Parking provides parking garage locations with both their hours ofoperation and directions to the entrance. Choose the garage that is open and close to your destination. Once you have selected a garage you are guided directly to the entrance. No more searching for the entry!
The RoadMate navigation experience is both intuitive and robust. The OneTouch Favorites Menu allows you quick access to your favorite places or even your favorite searches. As you type the first few letters of your target address QuickSpell instantly narrows the search based on your destination. SayWhere technology speaks the street names throughout the preloaded maps of the 50 United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Magellan 5245T-Lm 5" GPS
This review is from: Magellan RoadMate 5245T-LM 5" GPS Navigation w/ Lifetime Traffic & Maps
Pros: It can be displayed in portrait mode. The most feature I like ,once you turn car's engine off, the GPS powered down, when turning the engine on, it starts where it has left off. Free lifetime map update.
Other Thoughts: This is the first Magellan GPS I bought. I was very satisfied with the purchase.
