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. It never did. They stopped supporting this model because they started using different map software that couldn't be used on this model.
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. Mio tech support was a huge hassle.
Cons: It's completely unreliable. Twice in the last week it's taken me to a different address than the one I input. If it does take you to the right place, it will definitely take you on the longest route possible. Don't buy it.
