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.

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.
