When in "Established Areas" Five stars....for Display/Features/Ease of us/
8 August 2013
Summary: I have a Mio unit. It actually works very well "BUT" only in " ESTABLISHED AREAS". I live in an area where there are many new roads and sub-divisions that were built in the last few years. When driving in these areas it looks on the screen as if you are driving in space, it is blank. With that being said, I do like the Unit, I like the way the data is displayed, it has served me well. If they did have updates I would have stuck with it.
Summary: I do not recommend this item becausse the battery life eventually begins to not hold a charge. I recommend just using phone GPS. It saved money and is less of a hassle. Also, with the growing economy, maps are expensive to update with new roads. Bad BUY!!
Summary: 3/2013: Bought mine about 5 years ago, it works well, and is faster to program than any other GPS I've used. However, the internal programming is a little funky: (a) If it calculates route is 500 feet shorter, it will take you off the main route and through a maze of sub-division streets. YIKES! (b) It sometimes gets confused on a multiple stop route, and goes back & forth on same street again and again. Machines are *not* necessarily very smart.
Summary: So far been really fun along with helpfull. I origanly got it so that my wife could access etc. That takes away the time we spend together. Our Fun is all the way of the house. Often I found it isolated. This smart thing has allowed us along with myself less restricted or confined to the back on which it displays me. I have never even manipulated a befor. I always thought they were veryi limited and could not perform the average tasks. However I have been proven wrong.

Summary: The Mio C320, which a bought on Ebay is junk. I always had to fidle with it, never took me where I wanted to go. It always took me back to the original address. I am now in Germany and it stoped talking. I took it to a shop which sels MIO, but they would help me, they told me to call the States. IN ONE WORD IT IS JUNK JUNK JUNK. A regular map is so much better.
Summary: It was hard to find maps for this GPS to use in my homecountry. I finally got a map (in a SD card), but the GPS has a lot of trouble reading it. I have to restart the program a lot of times in order to get my SD card available every time I want to use the GPS.
Summary: had a c320 for 6 months and the batery is dying, call company and get "we do not fix em, but for 100.00 we'll send you a new one", I said no- but when I open up the back to DIY- I find my 2008 MIo has a battery made in FEB 2001. never will I buy from these frauds.
Summary: I use an older Mio in my delivery work, but the map (2008) is dated. I bid on this unit, which was advertised as "new", and indeed it was....but I discovered it still had a 2008 map. I gave it to my son-in-law, who likes its features. His driving is in an established area, so the 2008 map is not an issue for his use. I checked the Mio website, and found that they have released a 2010 map...for France, Italy, Germany, England.
