I wouldn't buy again.

burchallen2009, Ebay
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!

William Lau, 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

Brad Holt, 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.
