Summary: My reason for buying the H610 was to record my exercise walks. The feature is called Track Recording but does not work. PLUSES: excellent map, good ability to acquire the GPS signal, easy to carry, strong batter performance, nice accessories. MINUSES: simply awful user documentation, useless customer support [they know nothing about the unit, just furnish cookbook answers that are worthless], difficult to use -- geeks OK, but ordinary folks will be confused, features in...
Summary: One of the best devices I have. This thing does everything it suppose to do very well > navigating, movies, pictures, MP3s, games no problem. Volume is very loud. Good battery life with no lock ups, dependable. Clear screen. 11 million POIs. Good to travel with. I bought approx a year ago to replace the HP 310 and I am glad I did.
Summary: my first gps (Mio 310) was stolen, so i decided to take a look at TomTom 920 (has european maps) and Garmin nuvii 650(good reviews)... The fact that TomTom 920 lists POI by name only (no address or city name) turned me off righgt away, also the screen is hard to read on a sunny day. When i took Mio310 out of the box, i thought it is too small(especially after TomTom's 4 in screen), but after using Mio310 for a day, I am sure i don't need a huge screen("small TV") with...
Summary: This is my first foray into the world of GPS navigation. That being the case I didn't want to have to carry around another device (I have only so many pockets!), so I wanted it to be truly 'hand held' and have multimedia player built in (photos, vids and mp3's,wma files) to replace my non-iPod mp3 player. Tall order? Behold..What I finally found was the Mio H610. And it delivered all the above and then some.
100 dollars every 1.5 years to replace the battery

Summary: My Mio stopped working after about a year. I contacted the company and was informed the battery life is about 1.5 years. Mio charges 100 dollars to replace the battery and insists upon your shipping the device UPS. Just be aware it works great for a year or so but appears to have an annual cost of 100 + dollars a year in upkeep for battery.
Summary: I live in California and travel a LOT for business. I saw the H610 in a magazine and picked one up for myself. I will never leave the house without it! No matter what city I visit I can easily navigate from the airport to the hotel and can easily find a great restaurant or night spot for afterhours. And the media player has saved my sanity more times than I can recall.
very city friendly, ipod quality cute, but some operation issues

Summary: i don't have car in NYC, just wanna have a GPS for cycling. I screwed the device holder to a Garmin handle bar bracket on my bike, cool!!! Vehicle type can be defined in several types, including bike and pedestrian. Each of them has even more detailed settings. I have used it just in NYC for few days. The preload POI is helping me finding lots of hideaways. But has no public toilet marked:( I have to do my own collection.
I use it to track my runs while I listen to music mostly

Summary: I have had this product since May. I purchased it for a cross country move. The research I did said a map update will be available, so I purchased it, but it really doesn't look like Mio is working very hard on it with their new line of Moov units. I really love this gadget now that I've had time to tinker with it. Here's why: Size: Its a versatile unit, but it is supposed to be carried around with you, thus it has a small screen.
Summary: I purchased this unit to find that it doesn't have Vista support. Mio justified it by saying lots of devices don't have Vista support. Not a good answer. I also found out they don't have any map updates. Every trip I have used it on has had a problem with errors in the mapping. With Vista support and map updates the unit would be great. Without it is useless.
