Simply touch the super-bright sunlight-readable color screen to enter a destination, and the c580 takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, the c580 accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.

Then talk hands-free through the c580 while staying focused on the road. Now there?s no more fumbling with your phone?s handset to answer a call or dial a number - just tap the c580?s screen and you?re connected. With 1-touch dialing for POIs, you can conveniently call ahead for reservations or information.

Comments about Garmin Garmin StreetPilot c580 Mobile GPS Receiver:

This is such a great tool. Helps the environment by not having to print directions each time, too. It's great for getting your back on track or helping you around trouble spots. It can be a bit difficult to navigate some menus and understand what they mean. The one con I have is that the mounting disks are so expensive! You can't buy just one, you have to get two and the price is ridiculous.

Comments about Garmin Garmin StreetPilot c580 Mobile GPS Receiver:

This is a great device. I've had it about 3 months now and have gone on so many road trips since I got it verses before when I went nowhere with out it. Easy to use quick acquisition of location. Couldn't be happier.
