I wouldn't buy again.

25 June 2011
  • Summary: Not so hot! Big and bulky. Directions way off course.I definately would not recommend you buy this product. All I can figure out is that it is really old and out dated.

Pay an extra twenty bucks and get a Garmin

Overstock
5 March 2008
  • Summary: After moving to a new city, I decided I needed a GPS device. Bought this one retail as it was significantly cheaper than any of the Garmins. Many times, it works fine. Sometimes, though, it kind of does its thing, this Mio -- I check off that I do not want to take the highway, and it puts me on the highway. It thinks it is somewhere else other than where it is. It repeatedly recalculates your route even if you haven't misfollowed any directions.

Why I returned mine

M. Anderson, Amazon
3 December 2007
  • Summary: I took a trip from Colorado Springs to Dallas using my brand-new toy; a Mio C220. I noticed that it wanted to send me from Amarillo to Oklahoma City, then south to Dallas. I knew this wasn't right, so I dug out a printed route I had made with Mapquest... this had the more obvious Amarillo to Dallas via 287 route. In order to force the C220 to take that route, I had to tell it I wanted to go to a random town along the way...

Windows CE crash proned!

Amazon
1 July 2007
  • Summary: I like most of the users here, thought this is was a great device at a great price. That's until I started to use this a bit more and this thing started to crash very frequently. Yes, crash just like a Windows application. When this happened, the system display a chain of the miogps.exe and mioutil.exe application fatal error messages, of which you can't close or click the "X" mark.

Third time not a charm

Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: I will begin by saying I loved this product when it worked. It was easy to learn and use and had a bright screen that was easy to view. I never really got a chance to use the navigation features, however. I had significant issues with the performance of the product. After working well for two days, mine stopped reading the card with the maps and just showed the default/demo view of Arizona. I tried reloading the maps on the card but without luck.

Que hago con Mi C 220, si resulta que no puedo actualizarlo

Francmiro, Ciao
23 September 2012
  • Summary: La verda que tecnicamente el GPS no funciona mal, el problema viene cuando te lo compras en el 2009 y rapidamente te plantas en el 2012 y ves que el GPS se empieza a perder por las obras realizadas en la carretera. Bueno como todo en la tecnologia uno piensa, lo actualizare. Y ahi empiezan los problemas te vas a su pagina web y ya no hay, ni te ofrecen ninguna actualizacion.
  • Pros: pequeño
  • Cons: actualizacion de mapas, etc

Navegador deja que desear

rentail72, Ciao
13 June 2008
  • Summary: Regular tirando a flojo.Crompré este aparato hace unos 6 meses y me he desecho de él recientemente, quizas sea una opcion para aquellos que no le vayan a dar mucho uso y quieran un GPS a un precio razonable, pero si van a hacer un uso exaustivo del mismo yo recomendaría otros de gama superior. El no poder disfrutar de conexion a internet para conocer a tiempo real la situación del tráfico, puede ser un problema para algunos. Barato pero pero caro por este motivo.
  • Pros: Precio
  • Cons: Opciones, programa navegador

Et les cartes ?

millerg, Ciao
24 April 2008
  • Summary: Je viens d'acheter cet appareil pas trop cher...au prix d'un c230. Je suis plutôt indulgent quant aux capacités intrinsèques de ce matériel premier prix. Ce qui est en revanche difficilement acceptable, c'est l'absence de suivi en matière de cartographie. Quand j'ai tenté de mettre à jour mes vieilles cartes de 2007, un an déjà, j'ai eu la surprise de me rendre compte qu'il n'y avait pas de mises à jour disponibles.
  • Pros: Prix
  • Cons: Cartes anciennes ( 2007 - 01 ), pas de mise à jour avant fin 2008
