Don't buy the Mio DigiWalker C230

  • Summary: The GPS was a good value when I bought it in early 2008. Pretty easy to use. The maps were 2007, but I didn't mind much because I figured they could be updated, and I figured I would wait another year to update. I kept checking the Mio website and they kept saying that an update was coming soon.

  • 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.

Might want to pass

  • Summary: Relative to a few years ago, its great, and if you like complicated gizmos likewise, but the interface is fussy, the battery life non-existent, and in the part of the country (OH) the directions are often just wrong. Not something you want to mess with while driving, but basically works decent.

Right price, poor performance...

  • Summary: I bought this GPS based on the price and a couple positive reviews. After two weeks of use, it went back to the seller. A few of the more annoying points that led to the return: 1) This unit will sporadically "reboot" while in-use.

Great features, but awful routing and difficult to use

William A. Michaud, Amazon
12 May 2008
  • Summary: This gps has some great features, but it is inaccurate by at least 100 yards, and does not route correctly no matter how you set it. When you deviate from the route the gps has a real problem re-routing to your destination, due to the fact that is takes some time for the unit to determine your...

Nice features, but....

A. Louden "anl", Amazon

  • Summary: This GPS has lots of cool features. But it was extremely difficult (relative to other GPS units)to use and understand. The points of interest feature was a pain to figure out. While driving, they appeared as small dots. Not helpful.

  • Summary: After falling in love with the system in my Acura RL I wanted a portable system for another car. This little unit has some outstanding features and options. But it's choice of routes was problematic. It insisted that I use a road that has been closed for over 20 years. It was returned.
