Summary: This was the absolute best GPS ever made. I used it everyday for multiple stops, sometimes up to 300 stops. Easy to use, did everything I needed it to do and did it well. Only problem was when I needed to update maps I couldn't. :( Super bummed at that point.
Excerpt: The MIO C230 is a gps system that has simple features that will do everything you need and it is very inexpensive. The menu is basic, all you have to do is tap on the address button with your finger and you can type in where you are going …
Summary: I'm now in my third year with the Mio 320, and first I'll say it's not perfect as the maps are not upgradeable(along with a few other quirks), nor are there maps for Canada. It's now nearing the end for it's useful life.
Summary: Bought one years ago for my wife. In hindsight, worst purchase I have ever made. At the current price, you can do much better with a low end TomTom. No updated maps have ever been released for this series and never will. It's obsolete before you even buy it.
Summary: Not Happy with the unit 1)The battery is a joke, you get more of a charge from a balloon rubbing it on your head. Once its unplugged, the battery dies and when you plug it back in, you have to recalibrate it again.
Works great if you can actually run the update program

Summary: I've had Mio GPS units before, never had any issues with it. Thi will be the last Mio I buy due to the Tech supports lack of common sense and the amount of time wasted trying to get this little thing to work. This one came with a map update SD card program. Its from 2008 or 2009.
Summary: This product seemed like a winner when I went to buy it... Spoken street names are nice.... However, there are a few issues to consider about this product and Mio as a company: - Mio never came out with a map update for the c230. To me this is unacceptable!
Summary: There are very few products that I have bought that have failed on as many levels as the Mio. Just the other day, after getting me hopelessly lost - again, and causing a 35 minute trip to take 2 hours - again. I finally threw the thing on the ground and stomped that baby to pieces.
