Okay GPS, but lacks updated maps. Long Signal Sync on start up
5 December 2010
Summary: I've had this GPS since 2008 and it works okay for my occasional uses. However I am currently in the market for newer one. Pros -works as intended and will get you to where you need to be. (most of the time) -pretty accurate tracking to where your physical current location is.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: It crashed three times when I got it the first time when trying to go to standby mode. Found that if I power down all the way this dooes not happen. Also takes 10 secs to power up and dpes not have the settings for "highway only" or "no highways" that the Garmins have.
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.
Good entry level GPS unit, needs a few tweaks though.

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.
Summary: Navigatore satellitare economico e compatto di bell'aspetto e molto facile da utilizzare anche per i meno intenditori. La navigazione la valuto abbastanza buona anche se certe volte tende a perdersi o a rimanere indietro o in altre circostanze può farti sbagliare con delle indicazione non molto...
Pros: Economico, ottimo display, semplice da usare .
Cons: Non precississimo in certe circostanze, pochi aggiornamenti delle mappe .
