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 packed
with detailed street maps for North America or Europe and millions of places.
Like the 500,
nüvi 550 provides spoken turn-by-turn directions to your destination and accepts
optional maps for any adventure.
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.
Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 550's intuitive interface greets you with two 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 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
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.
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 Vision and Inland Lakes Vision
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.
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, calculator and more. Show off photos of your excursions with nüvi's
picture viewer. Even download geocaches and instructions from Geocaching.com
straight to your unit. It also supports optional FM traffic alerts or optional
MSN® Direct content. 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.
