I really love the Garmin and it works great, my only complaint is that if it gives all the restaurants in the area, why can't it give rest stops so I don't have to take the time to exit onto another street, just to stop for 5 minutes

I'm a mom with a car full of kids. When we need to get somewhere we've never been, it's difficult to follow directions because the little ones are often a distraction. I love my Garmin because it tells me when to turn and helps me find new addresses without having to follow maps or written directions. It has made my life MUCH easier. It's very easy to use, as well: plug in, enter or select your address and push GO! I love it!

Garmin Streetpilot C550

By Dave S. Verified Purchaser from Yardley, PA on 04/17/2008


Cons:

Cannot Sort Favorites, Cannot Group Favorites, No Shortcut Buttons, Traffic Rec Can Be Slow

Pros:

High Quality, Good Value, Bright Screen, Durable, Bluetooth Audio Good, Turn Preview List, Good Graphics, Very Good Routing

Best Uses:

Where "hands Free" Req, Metropolitan Areas, Unfamiliar Destinations

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for my wife, who is not technically-oriented. She has found it very easy to use and loves it. While it does not have all the features of my top-of-the-line Streetpilot 2730, it is feature-rich for the money with the same routing. The screen, though, is actually brighter, so easier to see in sunlight, while having only slightly lower resolution. The TMC traffic service actually shows the status of some major roads that my 2730 with XM Traffic does not. It also gives estimated traffic delay times as well as optional detours. Interestingly, the traffic map does not show any green lines, just the yellow and red lines and has sometimes been slow to "paint" the lines (receive data). All in all, I am very pleased with the C550 and find it to be an excellent value. Garmin tech support and warranty support have also been great.
