Magellan GPS announced that it will release additional features and accessories for the Magellan RoadMate Pro 9165T that will provide RV drivers even more flexibility and convenience as they travel, according to a press release.

The unit, along with the Magellan Wireless Back-up Camera, is on display at SEMA booth No. 33235, now underway through Friday (Nov. 4) at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

An in-vehicle GPS designed specifically for RV owners, the RoadMate Pro 9165T features a Magellan-first, extra-large 7-inch touchscreen display for easier, safer viewing in large cab vehicles like RVs. It also includes an integrated Good Sam/Trailer Life Directory with detailed information about Good Sam certified RV campgrounds, RV service and park locations. Drivers can become familiar with their route before driving it, and customize routes based on the size and demands of their large vehicle or RV.

The new features include:

• Additional information regarding Good Sam campgrounds, (e.g. maximum stay, last year’s rate, sewer hookup, full hookup, etc.).

• Customization by RV vehicle type, such as Class A, B and C motorhomes, truck campers and more.

• Performance enhancements to shorten route recalculation times.

The new accessories will include a back-up camera, dual VPA adapter slots and USB combo vehicle power adapter, an extended cord vehicle power adaptor, a 12-volt hardware kit, a secure RAM mount and a leather case.
