for geeks only

  • 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...

No real support

Craig Moran, Amazon
9 August 2008
  • 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.

Poor Software Equates to Poor Device

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: There are some nice hardware features. The device is small, the screen has good resolution and the SIRF GPS chip locates your position quite quickly. However, the software is poor and difficult to use. For example: 1. For some reason, if you don't use the device for a few days, the battery runs down quickly. 2. The on-screen keyboard is so small as to be unusable without a stylus. 3. The mapping software is not intuitive at all.

Poor

Robert M. Klenke, Amazon
29 May 2008
  • Summary: Mio DigiWalker H610 Handheld GPS and MP3 Player Received this GPS from TigerDirect through Amazon. Planned to use it on trip to Nevada and Colorado. Mountain bike trip in desert and concerned we might get lost. This unit's battery failed almost immediately and could not use it on the trail. Had it less than a month when it failed. Difficult to understand how to set trip destination. We should have purchased a TomTom and should not deal with TigerDirect.

Great for about 2 months

Tech Freak, Amazon
30 April 2008
  • Summary: Unfortunately, the old saying of you get what you pay for definitely applies to this product. When I first received it, everything worked fine and I was very pleased with all the great features. When compared to similar products by other more popular brands, dollar for dollar, this was the best deal. Then after about 2 months all the problems began.

100 dollars every 1.5 years to replace the battery

Ben "ben", Amazon
27 November 2007
  • 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.

Very Outdated!

Samuel, Amazon
14 September 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this a week ago, got it yesterday, and fired it up today. When I typed in my home address, it couldn't find the street. In fact, it couldn't find any street in my development, despite the fact that I have lived here for three years and the development has been here for five years! When I called tech support, they said that the map data was 2005, and they weren't going to have an update until next year.
