In-car navigation has never been easier - or more affordable. Our StreetPilot "c-series" GPS navigators feature a simple touchscreen interface, with automatic route calculation to any destination and turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions along the way. Selecting a destination is straightforward and requires only a limited amount of input from the user. Plus, the StreetPilot c320 and StreetPilot c330 allow you to choose between a three-dimensional navigation view or the more traditional "bird's eye" overhead view.

For the ultimate out-of-the-box convenience, the StreetPilot c330 comes preprogrammed with highly detailed MapSource City Select street data. The database features nearly six million points of interest?including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs, and attractions. (The c320 comes with a 128 MB SD card and a MapSource City Select CD-ROM for data transfer from a PC via a USB connection.)

As an added benefit, you can now import customized points of interest with the help of Garmin's free POI Loader software. The possibilities are endless - upload safety cameras or school zones, and you will receive a warning if you are traveling too fast. In addition, an optional proximity-alert feature notifies you of upcoming custom POIs.

The centerpiece of both units is a bright, 3.5-inch diagonal, 16-bit color display that makes navigation a snap. The StreetPilot c330 features dual integrated speakers for high-quality voice prompts, and an internal lithium-ion battery for out-of-car route planning.

The new StreetPilot c-series boasts distinctive and sleek styling?the only buttons are a rotary volume knob and an on/off switch. The device is secured by a suction-mount cradle that fastens to the windshield for easy portability between vehicles.

Comments about Garmin StreetPilot C330 (Manufacturer Reconditioned):

IN MY LINE OF WORK, I AM ONCALL 24/7. WHEN IT'S 2AM AND RAINING, THIS IS GREAT FOR FINDING STREETS AND ADDRESSES. ALSO HANDY FOR FINDING THE NEAREST SUPPLY/HARDWARE STORE.
I DID HAVE PROBLEMS WITH RECEIVING SIGNALS WHEN IN BOSTON AMID THE TALL BUILDINGS AND TUNNELS. OTHERWISE THIS HAS BEEN A GOOD PURCHASE.

Comments about Garmin StreetPilot C330 (Manufacturer Reconditioned):

I bought this for my wife who is definitely techno challenged. She finds it easy to use. Hard to read the display in the sun. Sometimes, the "Turn right" commands are difficult to understand which street to turn on. A "street name command" will be part of my next GPS. Even though I updated the maps through Garmin, many roads and landmarks must have changed in 2 years. Rural addresses another weakness. All in all it is accurate 95% of the time.

 
Not bad for a starter GPS
By RavenVerified Reviewer from Maine on 2/5/2008
Pros:
Easy to use, Good Value
Cons:
Doesn't Speak Street Name
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Garmin StreetPilot C330 (Manufacturer Reconditioned):

This isn't bad for someone who wants a GPS, but is confused by all the options out there and isn't sure what to do with the extra bells and whistles. This is my first GPS, and I will definitely upgrade in the future, because it is missing a couple features I wouldn't mind having. But overall, this is a nice unit. It does allow you to upload custom POIs, which is a bonus.

The one thing that it is missing is it doesn't not speak the street names, it only says "turn left" or "turn right" and things like that. That is one feature that I will make sure my next unit has.
