  1. I bought the street pilot 530 instead of 550 because I don’t like blutooth devices. Now I really wish mine annouces the street name.
    The 530C is small enough to put in my bag if don’t need the external charge.
    Add additonal stop (one only) is not user friendly or I don’t know how to use it?
    Does any GPS allow you to cutomize your route? These are the alternative routes tested by friends and relatives knowing the area, i.e., my hubby knows how to get to his sister’s house using deffirent routes, or alternative when traffic stops.
    I also wish larger screens as the vision is not so good now.

  2. Jenny, the Garmin nuvi 700 series allows for multi-destination routing and saved routes. There are other brands that do too, but the Garmin will probably be the most intuitive.
