Summary: 1. Very simple to operate 2. Gives detail map and streets 3. Super price point. I purchased the head only. I was able to use my windshield mount and existing electrical plug. Moov does not have enough exposure in the American market.

Summary: "The Mio Moov 500 series pictured is the same physical device as the S555 I purchased in September 2010 as the salesman's "newest model". On my blind presumption that I could buy maps for other regions, I unfortunately discovered this model only comes with maps of the Middle Eastern countries. I also paid WAY TOO MUCH in the Emirates at over $400 US. The outside of the box FALSLEY states "2010 Maps" --- yet there are no maps included that are less than 3 years old!!!
Summary: Unit has lots of great features, simple to use and accurate. I've had very good experiences with it over the last three weeks and 3500 miles. Only needed to reset unit once. Maps load in under a minute 90% of the time. Touch screen is slightly oversensitive but otherwise no issues. My wife takes if for day trips as well and loves it. I haven't had the chance to use it in a dense city setting [i.e.
Do Not Waste your time - no calibration nor customer service

Summary: From Customer Service to the product, please save yourself the time and frustration that I have spent. I purchased the MOOV 500 in October 2008. About two months later I noticed that the calibration was off about 1/4 of an inch. If you have one, you know that all of the important features are located on the right side (cancel, zoom, etc). For example, if I typed a "P", the letter "O" or "I" would come up.
Summary: I upgraded from the Mio C220 and was quite happy with this item. Pros: Huge screen, some POIs show branded icon, tons of POIs (3.5 million+), Interface is easy to use, Maps are from Aug 2008 or newer, street names are spoken, fast route calculation, multiple 2d/3d views, price. Cons: Coming from a previous Mio model this is what I consider some of the downfalls: First off there is some minor lag when entering text/clicking menus sometimes that is annoying.
