Talk about simple. The portable 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 comes loaded with new 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
- 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.
Integrated Traffic Receiver
Monitor traffic tie-ups with the addition of an optional traffic receiver. In select metro areas, with the addition of the GTM 20 FM TMC traffic receiver*, the SteetPilot c530 notifies you of accidents, road construction, and weather-related traffic delays before they are encountered, and then offers an alternate route. Simply touch the screen icon to calculate a new route.
* Traffic services available in select cities throughout the U.S. Subscription required.
The c530 comes with preloaded maps of North America and includes automatic routing, 2D or 3D map perspective. It also accepts customized points of interest (POIs) such as school zones and safety cameras.
