Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
A GPS reciever and you can't get coordinates? I never thought to look at such a simple function when comparing. Does anybody write add-ons for this thing? Any tricks on how to get your cell phone to dump history, phone book etc. Audio is fine. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org in case I don't get back here. Thanks..
Mapsource (from Garmin) and 3rd party software ExpertGPS, are desktop software products that can both communicate with the c550 Streetpilot via USB. You can mark favorite spots by pressing on the map to record waypoints when you are there...and with the software, you can download GPS waypoints to the mobile unit. The waypoints show up in the FAVORITES section. The only place to actually see coordinates isin the desktop software...just not on the mobile unit. You can still use the unit for geo locating...just need software to prep the unit. This is a workaround, however, the desktop software is very useful for downloading internet waypoints as well.

I to have a garmin streetpilot c510 and i am very dissapointed about howyou cant get the co-ordinates. I would use themall the time. It would be great if garmin did bring out an update so you could. Is this possible.

I have the same problem. I need to navigate to broadcast towers on a regular basis. I think we should email everyone we can find in Garmin until they release a firmware upgrade.
