Garmin announces new Nuvi 500, 550 GPS

GPS maker Garmin has released a couple of new products into their Nuvi line of GPS devices, the Nuvi 500 and 550, designed to be the one GPS you’ll ever need to carry, regardless of whether you’re walking, driving or boating.

Both the Nuvi 500 and 550 are rugged and waterproof, designed to be able to travel with you no matter here you need to take it. The 500 includes city and topo maps of the 48 contiguous US, while the 550 drops topo maps in favor of including highway coverage.

It looks like topo maps can be added to the 550, so I’d assume that highway maps can be added to the 500. Are they really planning on not including highway support on the 500? Sounds off to me but maybe it’s true?

Look for both the Nuvi 500 and Nuvi 550 to go on sale soon for around $499 each.
