Map Browsing: This feature enables the user to point to a location on the navigation screen and choose to navigate there. A great feature for when you visually know where you want to go, but are not sure of the address or intersection.

Phone Number: Search for locations by their phone number. Perfect for when you know the phone number of a restaurant or similar locations, but do not have the address. Also convenient when a store has many locations and you need to go to the one that you have previously called.

A/V (Audio/Video) inputs allow the unit to playback external audio and/or video sources typically using common, composite RCA connections. For example, you could connect an external DVD player, XBox360 or other audio or video device if the unit has an audio and video input. 1 A/V Input refers to 1 set of audio and video inputs. Other inputs may be included on the unit and we recommend you read the product description to find what type the unit has.
Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
Traffic Tuner
In-dash navigation units with satellite radio have the option for a traffic tuner, also called a Traffic Message Channel. A Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is used to deliver traffic and travel information directly to the driver. When the TMC is built-in a navigation unit, it can help direct the driver to take alternative routes when traffic is bad.
Bluetooth Connectivity
Bluetooth® technology allows two or more electronic devices to communicate with each other wirelessly, such as using your cell phones "hands-free" or transmitting music to Bluetooth enabled receiver. If a unit is Bluetooth capable, it typically can allow you to connect to your Bluetooth cell phone to make and receive calls. Others can access your phone and address book too via Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth capable units offer even more services, such as live traffic information and map upgrades.

More uses of Bluetooth technology include transmitting music to a compatible receiver, printing wirelessly from a computer, and many other wireless uses. Please see the item description for more specific information regarding what features the unit includes.

My experience with the 3550

July 12, 2007

I got the unit a couple of months ago I also have the magellan 760 and I have to say I prefer the dual 3550 over the 760... here's why,


the dual is much smaller than the 760

the dual is way faster than the 760

dual unit has a built in battery [so you can walk around w/it!]

I own both units and for the price go with the dual unit it's flat out more reliable and much more rugged than the magellan the one thing the magellan does that the dual does not is to announce the actual street name instead of just saying right turn in 500ft. a nice feature but not worth over twice the price in my opinion.

what I don't like about the dual 3550

screen is a bit small..but it is clear

speakers could be better [or unit needs a tone control]
