Do it all with the rugged, waterproof, multi-mode nüvi 550. Drive, hike, bike or boat — this dynamic device switches modes to navigate your active lifestyle. It's preloaded with detailed street maps for North America or Europe. Like the 500, nüvi 550 provides spoken turn-by-turn directions to your destination and accepts optional maps for any adventure.

  • newegg Take It Anywhere nüvi 550 features driving, walking, bicycling and boating modes which customize your nüvi specifically for your method of travel. This portable hybrid combines the advanced navigation features and large, color display found in automotive units with the durability of an outdoor handheld. Sleek and slim, you can slip nüvi 550 into your pocket or backpack. The user-replaceable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery lets nüvi navigate you on roads or off.
  • newegg Turn-by-turn Directions nüvi 550 has an intuitive interface that greets you with 2 simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator NT street maps, millions of points of interest (POIs) and features digital elevation maps that show you shaded terrain contours at higher zoom levels. With nüvi 550, you can upload custom POIs and navigate to geo-tagged photos. If you're lost, use the "Where Am I?" emergency locator to view your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations.
  • newegg Navigate Off-road Conveniently plug in optional maps on preloaded microSD cards for all your off-road adventures (see Maps tab for compatible maps). Add topographic maps to explore the backcountry or load BlueChart g2 and Inland Lakes marine maps for a great day on the water. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, nüvi 550 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover, deep canyons and near tall building and trees.
  • newegg Expand Your GPS Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 550 includes many travel tools, including world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter and calculator. Show off photos of your excursions with nüvi's picture viewer. Even download geocaches and instructions from OpenCaching.com straight to your nüvi. It also supports Garmin Traffic services. The 550 features Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage, where you can download custom vehicles that show your location on the map.

4 out of 5 eggsMy Garmi

Pros: Waterproof device hope it works well I have yet to test it.

Cons: It does not come with a usb cord to hook up to your computer and update it. I was hoping I wouldn't have to buy one.
