Summary: I live in san jose, and after buying this GPS, we took a drive to San Fran for dinner and shopping. We are basically at Union Square, coming home I was about to hop on 101 South, but the Mio say to take a left... so against my better judgement, I took it's advice.
Summary: It doesn't have Bluetooth as advertised "...Bluetooth GPS Unit with Optional..." and price is pretty high. It is unbeliveable that Amazon, a famouse company, cheats customers. Amazon should let customers may return it with full refound (including shipping back fee) or refound some money for some...
Summary: I purchased this unit today as a gift for my daughter. I had an older model Mio a couple of years ago. In total I've used Garmin and Magellan units and lean toward the Garmins. What got me to pick up the Mio was the $170 price tag and text to speech.
Summary: I have use a couple of different Nav units in my time. I thought that this was a good deal for the price. I used it for a trip from Philly to DC. VERY DISAPPOINTED. The interface was slow and not very user friendly.
Okay, poor battery life, bad routing, bad touch screen

Summary: This is the second GPS I've ever owned, but the first one was long enough ago that it didn't do routing and had a tiny little monochrome screen. I've used Garmin nuvi's and the Asus R700. Pros: + relatively cheap in the US (but cost me $300 here in Israel) + unlockable + English maps for Israel.
Summary: I purchased this unit to use on the road. I have been using a GPS system for about 4 years. I have one built in to my Jeep, have been renting from Hertz when traveling. Decided I would purchase a unit to save the rental fee everytime. Pros The unit is able to locate satellites very quickly.
