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. It never did. They stopped supporting this model because they started using different map software that couldn't be used on this model.

Eh, at least it was cheap

  • 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. The USB Mini charger that comes with it has to be used to charge it up, or it will think you are connecting it to a computer for update. 2)Maps need updating in the worst way.

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.

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.

Mio C320 Great Potential Not Realized

D. C. Pearce, Amazon
15 October 2008
  • Summary: This product works very well in most situations. The graphics are great, the screens are bright, the voices are good, the volume is excellent, the user interface is easy to use except that I found that the buttons are on the small side unless the unit is in your hand, satellite acquisition on startup is slow but rock solid once established, the points of interest are very out of date, route performance on long trips is great but poor on short trips.

Nice features, but....

A. Louden, Amazon
15 October 2008
  • 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. When the map was magnified, the POI's enlarged too, clarifying each icon. Then, inexplicably, they shrank again. The TTS feature was really nice to have, given the price of the unit. But I noticed some problems with navigation itself.

Great features pity about the maps

  • 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.
