Excerpt: MiTech Industrial Corp introduces its Mio C520 with a thin steely body and a wide touch screen giving GPS devices a new visual standard. The Mio C520 comes with a unique, first time text-to-speech conversion functionality making it one of the top selling portable navigation equipment in the market. The Mio C520 has a strong robust body coupling with a wide 4.3 inch touch screen increasing its overall visual appeal and functionality.
Conclusion: Mio's latest widescreen, feature-packed GPS, the DigiWalker C520, is thin and stylish and offers a lot of bang for the buck. Though it's brimming with extras such as multimedia players, Bluetooth phone problems keep it from being a clear-cut winner.
Pros: Large 4.3-inch screen. Sensitive 20-channel SiRFstar III receiver. Deep, searchable POI database with predefined national retailers. Includes multisegment routing and pedestrian profiles.
Cons: Bluetooth phone interface connected, but didn't work with our test phone.
Excerpt: market, riding on an updated and often times innovative operating system that may just be leading instead of following. The Mio C520 has a sleek design that is not some bargain block on a suction cup GPS, that on top of being good looking comes with a nice set of features. These features include a relatively bright widescreen, text to speech, Bluetooth handsfree capability, music and video playback and a good set of Points of Interest (POIs).
Excerpt: I’ve spent the last ten days or so trying out the Mio C520 , also known as the Mio DigiWalker C520. This one is going to give Garmin a run for their money. I was impressed from the moment I took the unit out of the box – this GPS receiver looks great and feels great. It offers high-end features at a very reasonable price point.
Conclusion: With an optional traffic plug-in (not included in the box), the Mio C520 at £269.99 is a middle of the road offering that will suit those looking for a widescreen offering and not much else. Compared to the competition, we would still probably opt for the TomTom One XL for widescreen on the cheap, mainly because of the TomTom's interface, however we do like the split screen view championed in this design. Good, but basic, this still gets the job done.
Pros: Display, ease of use, size, Bluetooth
Cons: Cover, Postcode needs that space in between, Only one voice
Conclusion: Mitac Mio C520 – не идеал автомобильного GPS-навигатора, но стремится к нему изо всех сил. В плюсах: неплохая комплектация, большой качественный дисплей, удобное, продуманное автомобильное крепление, качественная работа GPS-приёмника и проработанное обновляемое ПО для него, возможность использования устройства в качестве автомобильного комплекта громкоговорящей связи, богатые дополнительные возможности.
