Summary: After my previous Mio320 was stolen (some buggers busted into my car window while i was out for 10 min only), I explored the newer possibilities and fell for this one- and that was a good decision. For this price, the service is JUST LOVELY.
Summary: I hate to return this unit because of the great features in one unit. I received my refund from AMAZON yesterday. Five stars with all the features except for the main purpose of this item, the GPS/MAP for Hawaii, i.e. Honolulu, Maui, Big Island, and Kauia need to be completely revise.
Summary: Well, I really wanted to like this unit. It has TTS, Bluetooth, and tons of POI's. It was widescreen and the price was great. I currently own a Mio C230, so I was comparing them side by side. Well, there was one BIG glaring issue with the unit. The maps are all out of date! They are all 2006 maps.
Summary: You get your money's worth here! You have a 4.3" screen, music capability, photos, bluetooth, text-to-speech, sleek design and the list goes on and on...all for $400. It takes some time to learn the device...but if you're the engineering type this device is for you. My husband loves it! Great buy!
Summary: I looked through many reviews and otption when deciding on this. The features required were text to speech and blue tooth. Some reviews indicated problems syncing with bluetooth. On my wife's Samsung phone (model # unknown) it was extremely easy. The Mio stated exactly what steps to stake.
Summary: I bought this GPS about a month ago. Acquisition time, route calculation and recalculation times are excellent. My previous Gramin took forever to find POI's and calculate and recalculate routes and this was the main reason for purchasing the new GPS. Routing is OK.
Summary: I would put the same title even if the price was over $500. This is the best GPS device with a great deal of properties. If you unlock your Mio C520, you will be able to completely personalize it and use alternative navigation softwares and maps whenever you want!
Summary: I really think the hardware and UI was well thought out. However I wound up returning it because the actual mapping software had many serious flaws. A) several streets in my area were mis-named. B) more than once (in a week's time) it routed me through roads that did not exist.
