Mio GPS perform well for the cost

123engsberg, Ebay
1 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit to use on a motorcycle and it had to have a earphone jack as the Mio 220 does have. When I received this unit , it was a Mio 230 and does not have a ear phone jack. It still did what I needed it to do, but I had to install my own phone jack into the case. It was not very hard to do, so I just kept it and put it into use. It performs very well on the motorcycle and sound is great thru headset.

MY THOUGHTS

  • Summary: Unit is nice/price is right/have not been able to enter any address's/due to screen keeps changing. Spent 30 minutes trying to enter adress,I get half of address in and screen changes to something else in another state. Can't figure out how to display just the speed as you drive. I have a Garmin and It works perfectly for those features. I bought because of speed display and price. This is the third one I own but first of this brand.

Great little gadget

  • Summary: When I decided to get a gps i needed a "no B.S." kind of device that is easy for this technically challenged guy to get along with. The Mio fits the bill quite nicely. I do wish that since it was a "new in the box" item it would have had a little more recent software included with it.

No Favortes

Caseybea, Amazon

  • Summary: In terms of GPS functionality-- this unit works fine. It has a pretty good display, navigation works well, etc. However, I had to return this unit becuase you can't store address as "favorites" like many other GPS units (including my older NEXTAR C3). You can store "home" and "work" - that's it. (and while these two 'favorites' can be renamed-- two just doesn't cut it for me).

okay for the price...

  • Summary: I have never owned a GPS unit before buying the Mio, so I have no basis for comparison. Positive: (1) readable screen, (2) good holder. (3) Best feature - not specific to this unit: now I'll go off the `beaten path' to explore w/o fear of really getting lost. I have discovered whole new neighborhoods. Negatives: (1) Application crashes for no apparent reason.

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: I bought c220 when I was looking for a cheap unit for occasional trips, but returned it within a week. Here are some of the issues i had: User Manual: This is something they should fix first. The unit comes with maps of four US states preloaded, and rest of them are on a SD card. This is not mentioned on the quick start guide or the user manual. When I first opened the box, I saw the SD card, plugged it in and turned on the GPS, but it won't read the card.

  • Summary: This is a good GPS, it doesn't follow you exactly. It will direct you where you need to go, it's not that user friendly. But, if you read the whole book you are OK.

Budget price, budget performance.

AC, Amazon

  • Summary: My first GPS, no previous experience. Pros: * One of the very few current models under $200. * Works pretty much right out of the box. * Performance (routing and tapping the screen) is pretty snappy. * Includes maps for all 50 US states. (Nothing else.) Cons: * Mapping data is a bit off. Roads and houses and such seem to be displaced by about 50-100 feet (real world versus the Mio). (Mine came with the 2006.10 maps from Tele Atlas.

Good entry level GPS unit, needs a few tweaks though.

H. Ruedas, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying how great this unit is, for its price, design, and ease of use. I never leave home without it when I drive. After using the mio c520x from my brother, I decided to buy one since its $199 at Circuit City. in my opinion, Mio is one of the best GPS nav companies out there. Maybe not for overall design.. The only REAL problem that I get from this unit is the maps. It is not the most updated map.
