Great Features, Bad GPS for Hawaii

Davant95, Amazon
10 April 2008
  • 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.

don't expect good customer service

  • Summary: I was using this device and its working perfect. Then I bought a map update CD for $80+tax+shipping. I did the firmware update. Then for map update, you have to go on the site to receive the activation code.

Disappointing

Steve McAlister, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought the C520 in Jan 2008 and found it to be pretty easy to use, although the interface can be maddening at times. The biggest complaints I have are (1) Re-boots frequently and (2) Maps hopelessly out of date.

Good Product UNTIL I UPGRADED THE MAPS

Boooya, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: This was an OK unit until I updated the map and firmware from a disk I purchased from MIO. First of all I was very surprised to find the 'Update' on the disk has 2007 maps on it even thought we are in 2009. Not 1 road changed in this software that I have seen yet.

Super GPS but useless maps

R. Hewitt, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this product on April 4, 2008 and the features are very nice. I had no trouble connecting 'bluetooth' devices and setting destinations without reading the manual (since you have to print the 100 page MioMap manual and the 100 page hardware manual. BUT, I cannot find my way home!!

Save yourself a headache... Buy a Garmin!

S. Gajdos, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I love the "idea" of this item. Tons of features including bluetooth and MP3 playability built in to a really advanced GPS navigator. Tons of mapping and routing options. Split screen control and more information displayed at a given time than any other brand of GPS.

Big promises but not a good product

D. Sonnamaker, Amazon
30 November 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this unit last week because I had kind of been looking at them and was preparing for a 1400 mile trip so I decided to go ahead and get it. I had read C-net's reviews and they ranked this as one of the top 6 GPS must have units. I was impressed by the looks and features offered.

User Review

  • Summary: Attention, mio est une grosse arnaque. Pas de mises à jour des cartes, il faut encore payer et utiliser "36" logiciels pour transférer des données (quand cela marche). A jeter au plus vite, Mio est nul et leur SAV est inexistant. A bon entendeur ...

  • Summary: Io ne ho preso uno due giorni fa. Ha alcuni problemi. Il più fastidiosio è che il sintetizzatore vocale spesso si inceppa ed emette delle scariche fastidiosissime. Dopo mezzora ti viene voglia di buttarlo dal finestrino se non costasse quello che costa.
  • Pros: _   _
  • Cons: si inceppa l'audio
