Nice unit, out of date maps

S. Marsh, Amazon
11 January 2008
  • 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 The maps are all out of date!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.

Good but not perfect

  • 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.

Mapping is not as accurate as I would have liked

Brian McKenna, Amazon
30 December 2007
  • 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.

  • Summary: This unit does has a lot of functions, including bluetooth, and the ability to play many other files. Compare to my old Garmin Street Pilot i5, I like the large, touch screen of Mio C520.

Some good/some bad

A. Samit, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: The unit works fairly well, but could be improved. Gets me to my destinations, but sometimes via obscure routes. For instance, when I am returning home, even when I turn onto my street about 1/2 mile from my house, it still does numerous "route recalculations" to try to get me to use a parallel...

out of date map data and need firmware updates

HT, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this device for at least 6 months now and have been experiencing some annoying problems, now I feel compelled to share my experience and thoughts about this unit. The pros are pretty common knowledge and have been listed by many other reviewers, so I will not repeat them here.

  • Summary: This is a great device for directions and navigation, and comes with everything you'll need to get up and running, charge at home or in the car, and connect the c520 to your PC (not mac) to transfer movies, music, etc.

As a GPS Unit, it does the job - Bluetooth features, not so much

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Having owned a Mio product for over a year (C310X), the C520 caught my eye for several reasons, including some of the extra features. First, the good. As a GPS, it does the job just fine. Mio's map feature is, for the most part, pretty accurate.

Fantastic idea but lacking in implementation.

Rusty, Amazon
30 November 2007
  • Summary: I previously owned a Garmin Nuvi 350. In my eyes it was a fantastic GPS. The only downside to it was that it was VERY basic with basically zero advanced options. As well, the maps were pretty out of date (even the new 2008 released did not have some streets in my development which is almost about 11...
