NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Garmin. It is replaced by the nuvi 255 (click here), with a new slimmer design and more advanced routing features.

Talk about simple! The portable Garmin StreetPilot c530 comes ready-to-go right out of the box with preloaded maps and plenty of options.

In addition to the simple touch-screen display found in previous versions, the StreetPilot c530 along with its counterpart, the StreetPilot c550, comes loaded with new c500 series features including:

  • High-sensitivity GPS receiver - provides faster acquisition times and maintains signal under heavy foliage and near city skyscrapers
  • Automotive-grade, sunlight-readable, anti-glare display - makes it easier to see where you're going
  • Turn-by-turn voice directions
  • Streamlined design - creates a slimmer, more refined shape
  • Configurable vehicle icons - allows you to select a fun, customized car-shaped icon that displays when autorouting
  • Garmin Lock - anti-theft feature that disables the unit from performing any functions until you type in a specific 4-digit PIN or take the unit to a predetermined location.

StreetPilot c530 Features:

  • Receiver: New high-sensitivity WAAS-capable GPS receiver by SiRF
  • Display: Automotive-grade, sunlight-readable, anti-glare TFT LCD display, 2.8"W x 2.1"H (7.2 x 5.4 cm); 320 x 240 pixels, with touch screen
  • Unit dimensions: 4.4"W x 3.2"H x 2.2"D (11.3 x 8.2 x 5.6 cm)
  • Weight: .59 pounds (269 g)
  • Battery life: up to 8 hours
  • Includes Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature
  • Configurable car icons
  • Preloaded maps for all of North America
  • Fingertip touch-screen interface
  • Look up addresses and points of interest
  • Choose 2D or 3D map perspective
  • Upload custom POIs, including alerts for speed zones and safety cams
  • Add optional software such as the Garmin Travel Guide and SaversGuide to personalize c530
  • SD memory card expansion slot

How is it different?

Q: How does the StreetPilot c500 line differ from the StreetPilot c300 line?
A: The StreetPilot c500 line revamps the design of the c300 with a slimmer unit that is easier to view in sunlight. The c500 series adds a new high-sensitivity SiRF Star III GPS receiver, and can take additional software such as travel guides as well.

Q: What is the difference between the StreetPilot c550, c530 and c510?
A: At this point, the c550 has four features not found on the the c530: (1) Bluetooth cell phone support, (2) mp3 player, (3) included, integrated traffic receiver and (4) text-to-speech voice directions. Both the c550 and c530 come fully pre-loaded with City Navigator North America. The c510 is a European version with only a regional map; it is not sold in North America.

Got one for Xmas. Sets up very easily, excellent owners manual. Our first GPS. Can't wait to take a trip, definately going to make it much, much easier, and as seniors that's a real comfort.

Would not attempt another trip without it!

Unbelieveable, August 10, 2007
We look forward to going on weekend trips. It has found all of the quilt shops that my wife has wanted to visit as well as addresses for friends we haven't seen for years. We rarely use a map for directions. A great little unit.

It's the best thing I have every owned.
I just love it. Thank-you

This is one of the most foolproof GPS units I have used. The only drawback I have found is it will take you on some of the smaller roads that would be trouble for a tractor trailor.

Initially, I had ordered the Garmin Street Pilot c530, since it was back ordered, I decided to upgrade to the Nuvi 350. I don't regret it at all. I really enjoy this compact unit. I am very content with the item.

It works fine. I did have one incident. I was loading a list of favorites and ir locked up. I couldn't even shut it off. It was too late in the day to call cust. serv. I had to let the battery run out. The next day when i plugged it into the car lighter, It was fine. I haven't had any more trouble with it.

This little gem from Garmin exceeded my expectations.

This is a great unit and easy to use. Its easier to use than to register it at garmin. I'm very well satisfied.

We particularly like the recalculating of the route if you make a wrong turn. Loading maps via the memory chip rather than the software installation method is the best, very quick and painless

Hunting Trip, November 25, 2007
Traveled from Ky to Kansas on hunting trip with this GPS. Also has another group who had a Tom Tom. This unit did not provide the best routes on the trip. I like the size and ease of use of the unit but will be returning it and purchasing a Tom Tom.

I purchased (2) and have been very please so far w/gps purchased. We took it on a 12hr trip and the directions was very accurate. We detoured a few times bypassing cities but this gps put you back on track. We were very please with the shipping from Tiger too! Very quick for Holiday delivery.

I received the above in a couple of days after ordering. I have since worked with it in my car and it is really great. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to purchase a GPS system for a reasonable price from a good supplier..
