Decent back-up or good regular GPS if you can get it cheap enough.
20 July 2011
Summary: Getting a little old and outdated, but if you can get one for under $45 or $50, it makes a great back-up GPS. Mio just purchased Magellan, so will probably stop making GPS units under the Mio name.
Summary: I bought this GPS a week ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this GPS Mio C520. It has full functions map, video and pictue player, BT, and speakerphone. The 4.7 size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 2.5 hours. Only thing is that if accessory included MapDVD, it will be more better.
Summary: would have been nice to get the software with it that came with the unit when it was bought new...i din't need the unit, i needed the software to use on the one i already have. now i have 2 that i can't use....
Summary: My Mio was stolen and I liked this model so much that I had to find a replacement. I found the identical model on Ebay and it runs flawlessly. I suggest to anyone looking for a GPS unit to look at the Mio line of GPS's. They are by far the best units I have worked with.
Summary: The Mio c520 GPS unit is the full featured unit at a reasonable price. Compare this unit to the Garmin Nuvi 660, and the Mio is by far a better unit for half the price. The C520 comes with updated 2007 maps, which are very accurate. Routing is great, and Mio has increased the number of POI's to 6 million compared to the 3.5 million on the c310x. The 4.3 inch screen is great.
