Not sure what's happening with the direct link, I entered it into the deal create page correctly, but just seems to redirect to Maplin's main page.

Anyways, the direct link is ]Here.

As with the other recent deals on Garmin units, there's no mention of this being a refurb or graded unit, so it's reasonable to assume it should be brand new.

Edit: rather puzzled with the cold thing - this seems a better bargain than the C510 that was doing the rounds, here (which I bought). The C550, is in the same series as the C510, but is effectively the top of the range, so has:-

SiRFSTAR III chipset
Bluetooth handsfree calling
Full Euro mapping
MP3 player
TMC (ie traffic) with included GTM-21 receiver and lifetime subscription
TTS (text to speech) so actually can speak the streetnames

If I hadn't got the C510T recently, I'd have one of these like a shot.

I think it is a good price, my dad has one of these and its brilliant, especially at that price.

Can confirm, I've got one of these and it's the dog's danglies. Well worth the price, works better than the TomTom equivalent (compared it against the 910) and the best bit is the TMC with lifetime subscription... just a shame the coverage doesn't extend to the whole of the UK though. :thumbsup:
Heat and rep added.

Voted HOT !
I have the 510 and it's great
this has full european mapping - very nice

Did anybody actually get one of these from Maplins? I ordered one on the 12th, got a confirmation email but just got another email saying my order had been cancelled and the item was "Discontinued":-( :-(

I don't think they had loads and loads of stock. When I first posted the deal, the stock level was something like 64 or 65 - that's not big numbers, and you can imagine how that could suddenly get to zero.

Yes, I suppose that is the case but strangely they had stock when I ordered then cancelled my order.......

Well, back to the hunt for a Satnav with European maps for the son-in-laws Xmas pressie (£150 limit applies)
