Great product

Strengths: easy to use, good price, came with updated maps, reliable, bluetooth capability

Weakness: a little bulky compared to newer designs, bluetooth compatibility issues with motorola krzr phones

I bought this unit because for the features it comes with, and for the reliable brand name. Under $200 is a bargain price. You do have to live with the fact that its not paper thin like the newer models, but other than that, I recommend this model for anyone who just wants to buy something reliable.

Great GPS!

Strengths: Reroutes you during traffic small and easily portable so you can move it from vehicle to vehicle Extremely user friendly Bluetooth compatible

Weakness: Sometimes mixes up street sides when calculating destinations

I recently moved to LA and this was the first thing I bought. Without this GPS I would hopeless. It has saved me countless times and re routes me during traffic and for the most part always saves me a few minutes on my commute. It is portable so I can lend it out to my friends if they need to use it as well which is nice. The bluetooth feature has also come in handy with the new hands free law!

Excellent GPS with some problems

Strengths: Very good directions. Easy to use menu. Grabs satellites quickly. Mounts well on windshield.

The screen is great even in bright light, the directions about where to turn on what street etc are given several times along the way so there are no surprises. Directions are helpful.. E.g., "Turn left on Maple Street in 500 feet" followed by...

Nice Instrument

Strengths: Strong signals, beautiful features, fast re routing

Weakness: old maps.

I am very happy with the instrument. Its very useful and has great features. Worth all the money.
I would like to state two things :
i bought on 1st may 2008 the application had the last update of 2006 only.

Another thing i bought for a lot more money. Go to WALMART and buy a fresh piece for lesser price.

StreetPilot c550

Strengths: Navigation's great, very accurate, bluetooth great

Weakness: Large in size

Great product. Use when travel out of state. Never have to use a paper map, and arrival times always within around 1 minute. Very accurate. Bluetooth is handy, but could have a louder speaker.
