The Bottom Line In addition to being a solid navigator for the price, the Magellan RoadMate 5175T-LM Traveler also packs a few features to help users to plan vacations and explore attractions in unfamiliar cities. The Magellan SmartGPS bridges a gap between connected navigation apps and car-friendly GPS hardware with its ability to sync with the cloud and connect to the Web via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but its busy interface could use fewer moving parts. Garmin's formula for entry-level GPS devices doesn't change much with the new Nuvi 50, but small tweaks, a lower price, and a massive screen enhance value. The TomTom Via 1535 TM offers many features and services to increase driver safety and routing efficiency. The Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM is a great navigator for those who think that size matters, but laggy performance causes it to fall behind much of its smaller competitors.
