  • Excerpt: GPS navigation system that backs what we saw when we had the Garmin C550 in for earlier this year when we said that the traffic receiver was “Worth its weight in gold.” The well-designed traffic receiver (built right into the power cord) along with the intuitive interface that alerts you to traffic conditions is easy to use and understand.

  • Excerpt: arrived for review at the GPS Lodge, and we’re pretty excited. The StreetPilot C550 is the latest addition to the popular C-series for Garmin. Late last year we reviewed the StreetPilot C340, and though that it was great. Very simple, very accurate, very good. (Read our review). The new additions to the Garmin C-series was announced back in March at the CeBIT in Germany, and included the C510, and the C550.

  • Excerpt: The Garmin StreetPilot line is a popular line in the mid-tier for automotive GPS devices. I had a chance to , and I thought it was a great GPS. Garmin has model and the first reviews are showing up on the web; verdict is that the new unit is good. Overall, the big news on the new is that it has Bluetooth connectivity, which is something that TomTom has had for a while in their GO line. But that’s not all the new StreetPilot C550 has going for it.

  • Excerpt: Car navigator piccolo e compatto ma con schermo ben leggibile, con la cartografia dell'intera Europa precaricata visualizzabile in 2D o in 3D. Adatto anche ad un utilizzo professionale intenso, ad esempio per un autonoleggiatore, integra la tecnologia Bluetooth per trasformarsi in un praticissimo vivavoce veicolare, con microfono ed altoparlante ovviamente integrati.
