Desription .........  Getting to your location with ease and style is what the exciting line of Garmin GPS Navigation Systems are all about, and the StreetPilot C530 is no exception. A generous anti-glare screen, your choice of 2D or 3D GPS map display, and a fingertip touch screen interface all make the StreetPilot C530 a valuable companion wherever your travels lead you. Support for FMC TM travel alerting, pre-loaded GPS Navigation maps of North America, custom uploadable points of interest (POI’s) and optional software like the Garmin Travel Guide add up to a GPS Navigator that’s destined for greatness.

The StreetPilot’s highly sensitive GPS receiver receives constant data from satellites that tells your C530’s computer exactly where you are – and where you are going.

In short, you won’t want to travel without the Garmin StreetPilot C530 GPS device in your SUV, car or truck. The anti-glare LCD “finger touch” screen is an added bonus that you’ll appreciate when you need it the most. Adding new features using SD cards is a breeze, and USB connectivity makes the Garmin StreetPilot C530 one smart GPS navigation device. You’ll have instant data from global positioning satellites wherever your travels take you, thanks to preloaded maps and the high-sensitivity GPS receiver (WAAS Capable GPS Receiver by SiRF), along with the StreetPilot C530 ‘s ability to maintain signal strength even when your StreetPilot C530 GPS-equipped vehicle is surrounded by skyscrapers, tall trees, and the like. Other great features include the StreetPilot C530’s anti-theft measures, support for FM TMC traffic alerting, preloaded maps for North America, and software upgradeability using SD cards along with popular travel guides and custom point-of-interest uploading.

A notch above average : I have this unit for quite some time now, I am really satisfied with its large screen display, which is very clear in sunlight. The signal strength is excellent even indoors there are very few blind spots where the unit does not connect to the satellite all this is because it has a "SIRF Receiver". The signal is acquired very fast and the unit gives me accurate directions, I have found places that I did not even know existed. This baby is easy to use and hassle free.

The cons are quite a few though this unit is bulky and does not fit in a pocket nor does it stay properly with its Suction Cup Mount which loose its grip on the wind shield and comes off. Another big no is that it does not have voice recognition of streets, so you don’t have a sexy voice telling you which street is yours; this is made up partially by the name of the street being set in big bold letters at the top of the screen.

The fact that it uses old outdated maps with no current update is a big let down I found that the biggest and best theaters I our area were not listed. I would rate this device a notch above average.
