Mapping seems to be pretty up to date.
I bought a Garmin StreetPilot c550 recently with the 2006 maps. I have
to say that I was stunned by the accuracy. Normally I would be extremely
skeptical about the level of accuracy but it is bang on. There are some
new estates here in my town that aren't on it but I presume that if I
bought the latest maps then that would be sorted.
Got it on special offer for €230 in Maplins. Bluetooth enabled and works
great as a hands free too. Plays MP3s and has an SD slot. Runs on
battery and charges from the fag lighter if needed with supplied cable.
USB cable supplied to connect to PC and appears as a removable drive.
Has connections to hook up to car audio system too if need be.
Various trip data, average moving speed, idle speed, max speed etc.
A little above your budget maybe but I'm quite pleased with it. More so
than I thought I would be.
