Decent back-up or good regular GPS if you can get it cheap enough.

  • Summary: Getting a little old and outdated, but if you can get one for under $45 or $50, it makes a great back-up GPS.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.

"awsome gps"

StuPedasole, CNET

  • Pros: I like the map and its easy to use. It gets me around perfectly. I like alot of the features that come with the map.
  • Cons: The battery went out really quick now it won't stay charged for more than 1 minute. When using bluetooth, the speakers are not very loud. I also wish it would list POI located on the route your following. Some of the features can be confusing.

Not Fan friendly

jrruss2, Ebay
17 July 2008
  • Summary: The display size and look is excellent and the accuracy good...within 20 feet or so and the price was right...used: $200 with a 2g SD card. I don't like several things about the operation: The menus are not as easy to navigate as, say, a Garmin. You can't selectively delete your history. You have to delete it all which is not good. When you don't ever expect to go to a place again, why save it? Adding POI's is akward. I doesn't route around traffic jams very well at all.

Overall very useful GPS, especially for Sales People

T. Marsh, Amazon
27 January 2008
  • 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. Obviously for anyone looking into GPS Units the Mio c520 is by far the cheapest 5+ inch screen out there, I purchased it for 249 with text to speech and a large screen, can't be beat.

  • Pros: Nice if not common mapping software and data. Large butons and letters. A lot to offer for the price, music, video, hands free with compatible bluetooth phone.
  • Cons: Bluetooth pairing is iffy. Text to Speech is almost none existant in my experiences.

Great value but not perfect

T. Westerhof "Excogitate", Amazon
1 January 2008
  • 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. However the unit locks up when I try to make a connection with my RAZR V3i even though it is on the list of approved Bluetooth phones. This appears to be a common problem from the other reviews I have read.
