Garmin StreetPilot c550 review


UPDATE: Most of the several generations old StreetPilot series, including this model, has been discontinued. For a more current recommendation, check out our Auto GPS buyers guide or go straight to our Garmin nuvi comparison chart.


The Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS is the first c-series StreetPilot to incorporate Bluetooth for hands-free cellphone use. An integrated traffic receiver also distinguishes it from other c-series units. A 3-month subscription is included in the U.S. — after that it will cost you $60 for 15 months. European users get a free lifetime subscription.

The c550 comes pre-loaded with full City Navigator NT coverage of North America or Europe. Like all the c500 series models, the c550 has the SiRFstar III chipset, a greatly improved sunlight-readable screen, and an anti-theft feature. Moving down to the c510 / c530, you lose the MP3 player, Bluetooth, the ability to call out street names and the integrated traffic receiver.
