nuvi500 or nuvi550
« on: May 07, 2009, 10:02:28 PM »
I bought a Nuvi 500 and I find the topo is poor.
the topos I see here are more like it.
Should I get the nuvi 550 with City Navigator and use
these topo. I guess what I am asking is are the 500 and 550
the same with deferent  maps?

According to this report, they are the same with different maps:

! would think the included TOPO maps are at 100K.
