Summary: bought this last christmas boxing day sale for around $ 100 cnd or so. first gps i ever bought.
Pros: cheap, small, easy to use, 2d or 3 d view is nice. address prediction is nice. scrolling and zooming was fast
Cons: gps unit froze on me numerous times, no roads of upper state new york just interstates...very annoying when i visit there. Cant find any info on map updates for this unit. satellite acquistion takes too long. gps routes sometimes took me onto some crappy gravel roads
Summary: Slow to locate satellites; will not accept multiple via points; inflexible plotting; gives weird backstreet instructions when straight ahead is the preferred route; very slow to recalculate logical alternative. No operators manual makes it impossible to learn systems except by trial and error. No wonder Mio don't give their business address so customers can seek help with a very limited product that does not do what they advertise.
Pros: Small, light, reassonable graphics.
Cons: See coomnets above, too many to retype. Unless my package has something missing, would not recommend to anyone.
Summary: maybe my bad luck. Takes a long time to get satellite signal and keep losing it afterwards. Sent for repair. Worked ok 1st trip then same problem. Sent for repair again and got a replacement unit. After first couple of trips - same problem. No tall buildings in my area.
Pros: If it can lock on to signal and stay on then it is a good product
Summary: So far so good, only had it for a week. Getting us from A-Z which is all we want, so very happy.
Pros: Works fast, never had a problem
Cons: Is there anyone who knows how to download some of these 'funny' celebrity voices to this unit. I can see plenty of sites for Tom Tom but nothing for Mio. Anyone???????? The voice becomes quite annoying that comes with the unit.
Summary: The car power supply is a real let down, why couldn't the designers have placed a simple small ON OFF switch on the top of the DC to DC converter so it can be left plugged into the cigarette lighter, then once the engine is started, all you need to do is simply switch on the power. This would be an outstanding feature, compaired to the tedious current option, unplug the plug, start the engine, re plug the plug into the socket.
Summary: Received Mio c220 as a contest incentive it functioned well for a year or so. When the touch screen stopped working, I thought it would be nice to get it fixed if it wasn't too much. Customer service checked it out and said it would cost $80 to fix. I figured this was about the most I would pay for the unit to be repaired. when I got it back the sound didn't work. I called customer service and they told me it would cost another $80 to fix the sound.
Pros: To P.O.'d to think of any other than it was free (actually I worked for it so it wasn't really free!)
Summary: Received unit as a gift. Would not recommend to anyone. Car adaptor died the first week. Spoke to custmer service representative who barely spoke English who promised it would be replaced. Repeated my adress and spelled it twenty times. Bought a house charger to keep it operational. Six months later still no car adapter. Went and bought one. Unit freezes constantly. At times refuses to shut off, slow to turn on.
