Summary: I bought this unit for my wife, since I already had a PDA with bluetooth GPS setup running iGuidance v3, and she needed something that would be a bit simpler. This unit seemed to have the most capability/performance relative to price. However, after purchasing this for $200 (currently not the price at Amazon) w/ free shipping I discovered that you can freely customize the device in a WinCE 4.2 environment using a easily found hack.
Summary: might be a couple of years old...but works like a charm. I have to write a hundred chracters in this review, instead of tell you right off it's nice, so most of the hundred will be repeating how nice this GPS still is, and how nice it works. I'm telling you.....nice is what it is!
Summary: This GPS device probably didn't get as much as stars as others, but I really loved it, not because it has the latest map, not because it has best POI data, but because of its superb interactivity. It's has the best presentation (not in picture quality, but in usefulness) of routes, while you are driving, all its zooming (to make you focus on turns) and spinning animations (like on ramp) are smooth, automatic and CONTINUOUS, and you can pan and move the map whenever you...
Summary: I actually bought one of these several years ago when they first came out. This is my second and I keep it around just in case anything happens to the first one. I like it that much! Out of the box it's an okay GPS unit. Except for the styling and colors, it's pretty much like every other GPS unit out there. However, I found out it was running on Windows CE, and that means I could load other programs and applications on it.
Summary: I like this GPS because it has all the features I need. Its maps are upgradable at a reasonable price. It's really compact, very portable, can play music through the SD card slot. All the maps are in its own memory (1 gig internal). It allows you to set wave points. Though I don't care much for the mount because it's bulky and it has limited freedom to move it. All in all, it's a great product that I would recommend.
Summary: The Mio 310x GPS device comes with instructions on how to navigate menus, what buttons do, etc, but does not teach a beginner how to start and until this day I don't know how to only erase my last entry. I wrote to Customer Service and did not get an annser.
Stick to the big 3. (Magellan, Garmin, and Tom Tom)

Summary: I've had this for almost a year now so I've got some experience using this in comparison to some of the other reviews after only a month or so of owning it. Plus my job consists of driving so I use this thing on a daily basis. Pros: Very nice looking piece of equipment and screen graphics. Added mp3 player for extra uses. Decent job as a mp3 player (but if you want an mp3 player I suggest an ipod) Cons: The fact is this is a pretty poor "GPS" system.
