Garmin StreetPilot c550


Garmin is getting ready to release a new GPS receiver in the StreetPilot line, the Garmin StreetPilot C550. Little is known about all of the specs and features, however it will have an SD slot which will store MP3 files and JPEG pictures in addition to maps.

The StreetPilot c550 obviously includes an MP3 player and it will create playlists based on genre. Album art also appears to be supported. The StreetPilot c550 also includes Bluetooth support to connect to Bluetooth phones. You can receive and place calls through the StreetPilot c550 interface. You can import your phonebook to the StreetPilot c550 and it will dial POI’s for you from the screen.

Text-to-speech is supported allowing the c550 to speak street names. The Garmin StreetPilot c550 also includes an integrated FM TMC Traffic receiver to retrieve live traffic information (subscription is an additional cost) and provide routing detours around traffic troublespots.

The StreetPilot c550 also appears to be compatible with an optional Travel Guide like the one for the Garmin Nuvi.

  1. I have a c550 model and the memory is full of waypoints I need for my business sales calls. Can I expand the memory by putting a 512 MB SD card in? I put a 1 GB card in but it will not take any more waypoints. Memory still sayd “full.”
