[Newegg] NewEgg.ca: Refurbished Garmin C550 GPS (Bluetooth/Text-to-Speech) $122.99 + Free Ship

The Shellshocker over at [rfdlink=116]Newegg.ca[/rfdlink] is a good one today... it's the Refurbished GARMIN StreetPilot c550 3.5" GPS Receiver for $122.99 with free shipping.

The C550 is a pretty nicely endowed GPS unit, featuring preloaded of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, 3D map options, built in MP3 Player, Bluetooth compatibility, 3.5" colour anti-glare touch-screen, voice prompts with text-to-speech technology, SD card slot and more. That's a great feature set at $123!


If you're interested in a brand new, non refurbished C550, NewEgg.ca has it for $197 with an extra $10 rebate and free shipping too. For the new version, that's about $212 all in including taxes and shipping.

I rushed to order but then red some user reviews on CNET that said that the mount is weak and the sound quality isn't good. Any one have any insight? It's a 2 year old model so I'm not so sure.

No hidden fees. Everything you pay is displayed at the checkout. There's a $1 brokerage free in there, but that's it.

if its 2 years old then doesnt that mean the map is outdated?

I have had one of these for the past 8 months and it is very good. Once I registered the unit with Garmin I had 30 days to download the updated maps from their site for free. It is well worth the price. I just ordered one as a gift for my daughter.

Does it have a FM Transmitter (so you can tune to an FM station to output the GPS audio) or do you mean FM Traffic Receiver for real-time traffic updates?

No FM Transmitter on this unit, he means FM Traffic Receiver as you suspected.

I have this and would recommend it, especially if you're looking for a BT enabled unit.

Sorry, My bad. Should be FM Traffic Receiver - which cost $225!

It comes with free 3 month trial subscription.

After 1 year, I think it still worth $100

I'm going to buy one of these, seems like a really good deal for a Garmin with TTS, bluetooth, and FM traffic.

Are there any newegg promo codes I can use with this item? Every code I've found so far has either expired or isn't compatible.

Let me know, I'm about to order now.
Thanks.
Always in search of a great deal....

I spent a good 30 minutes scouring the net for a working coupon. I only found 1 valid one, but it said that it wouldn't work in this context. Ordered anyway, didn't wanna miss out :P

Yep, same here. Bit the bullet and ordered, didn't want it to sell out while I was trying to save an extra $10.

Great price and free shipping is excellent. Now I just hope that UPS doesn't screw things up, as they usually do.

I ordered one too. Bluetooth + Text-to-Speech for this price is too good to pass up. I saw in a staples flyer yesterday that they're cheapest was this price and it was the Mio Moov brand.

I'm guessing it'll take two weeks, I hope it's in good condition.
