Summary: Overall the GPS has been very good for me. I am a Realtor and being able to enter multiple waypoints was a very important feature for me. It connects fairly quickly and has lots of bells and whistles that the $500 Garmin did NOT have. Such as multiple waypoints and the split screen.
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 was introduced to the Mio brand by my friend who showed me his C320 and I loved its looks. I was able to purchase the C520 for just a few dollars more for what I could get the C320 so it was a no brainer for the upgrades of Bluetooth and TTS.
Summary: I have been using this GPS for a month now. Initially, i was very skeptical as i had not really heard of MIO before, but am very impressed with the performance, response/start-up time, and feature packed unit.
Summary: We purchased the Mio after only a short period of looking. I have no experience with other units to compare its accuracy and can't say if there is currently a 5-star unit out there, but it came down to the fact that we liked many of the features that make this unit a pleasure to use.
Summary: More for my money. Note to reader: this is my first GPS unit. I am somewhat picky. The C520 has litterally become a constant-use tool. I very rarely put the truck in gear without using it first, if for no other reason than to get me going the right way. I no longer call for directions.
Summary: This is an absolulty great unit that offers a ton of features for the price when comapred to units form Garmin, Magellan, and TomTom. The screen is crystal clear and huge and being that it runs on Windows you can play videos, mp3's, etc... on it.
Summary: For most part this product performed as expected. It didn't allways choose a route that I would have choosen, but it got us to our distination. Using the route modifying tools are not easy, it is easier to just turn where you think is better and let it recalculate the new direction.
Summary: Pros: It was really a great unit with all the features you can find from other known expensive GPS units. I have no problems with the map routings which I believe it is using the 2007 tele-atlas maps. Tried this unit in Los Angeles and Michigan's suburb area and never had a miss-route.
Summary: This unit looked impressive and gorgeous when I played with it in Circuit City. The first time I used it on the road, I noticed the street name of the next turn was hard to read especially when the road is a bit bumpy.
