Navigate with 3-D Terrain

Garmin Guidance 3.0 allows you to quickly look up addresses and services and be guided to your destination with voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names. It comes preloaded with maps that feature 3-D landmarks and terrain for North America. It also comes preloaded with more than 8 million points of interest (POIs) and offers the ability to add your own.

Know the Lane Before It’s Too Late

Now there’s no more guessing which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. Available in select metropolitan areas, photoReal junction view makes unfamiliar intersections and exits easy to navigate. When you approach an exit or interchange, nüvi 3550LM will enter split screen mode and show you a realistic depiction of junctions on your route, complete with road signs and arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. Bird’s Eye junction view also is included for a top-down look at upcoming complex interchanges.

Enjoy FREE Lifetime Map Updates

With FREE lifetime map updates, you always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs and navigation information available at your fingertips. Map updates are available for download with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates.

Go Beyond Navigation

Point-to-point navigation is just the beginning. With an optional traffic receiver purchase, you can get traffic alerts that update as often as every 30 seconds over the HD Radio system (where available). The built-in microSD™ card slot lets you download custom voices and vehicles for free from the Garmin Garage™. It also comes with a powered mount that charges while you drive, as well as dual-orientation functionality that lets you hold your nüvi vertically or horizontally for added convenience while driving or walking.

“Where Am I?” emergency locator provides your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and more. And Enhanced Exit Services tells you what services you’re approaching on the highway.
