Garmin nuvi 550 GPS Navigator
Perfect for traveling from city to backcountry, and everywhere in between, the Garmin nüvi 550 GPS navigator provides a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with turn-by-turn navigation in a rugged, waterproof exterior that you can use while driving, hiking, biking, or boating. It's packed with detailed street maps for North America. nüvi 550 provides spoken turn-by-turn directions to your destination and accepts optional maps for any adventure.
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. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, nüvi 550 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons - whether in the city or out in the wild.
With nüvi 550, you can upload custom points of interest (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. And it easily switches modes (driving, walking, biking and boating) to navigate through your active lifestyle depending on your activity.
Other features include a 3-1/2" touchscreen, microSD memory expansion, geocaching GPX file capabilities for complete cache descriptions and hints, and Garmin Connect Photos - enabling you to associate your favorite images with saved locations. nüvi 550 includes many travel tools, including world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more.
