The StreetPilot c550 adds plenty of options to the easy-to-use, preloaded c510 and c530, including hands-free calling, included traffic alerts and an MP3 player.
Navigate With Ease
StreetPilot c550 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator® NT street maps, including a hefty points of interest (POIs) database with hotels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and more. Simply touch the super-bright sunlight-readable color screen to enter a destination, and the c550 takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, the c550 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. The European version even includes a preloaded safety camera database containing the location of safety cameras for parts of Europe.
Make Hands-free Calls
Talk about worry-free driving. The c550 integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker, so you can pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free through the c550 while staying focused on the road. Now there’s no more fumbling with your phone’s handset to answer a call or dial a number — just tap the c550’s screen and you’re connected. With 1-touch dialing for POIs, you can conveniently call ahead for reservations or information.
Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
Steer clear of traffic with the c550’s integrated traffic receiver. The FM TMC traffic receiver notifies you of upcoming traffic delays. Simply touch the screen to view traffic details or recalculate your route to avoid traffic
