Decent back-up or good regular GPS if you can get it cheap enough.
20 July 2011
Summary: Getting a little old and outdated, but if you can get one for under $45 or $50, it makes a great back-up GPS.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.
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.
Overall very useful GPS, especially for Sales People

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: 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.
