Summary: This GPS has a large and bright screen. The satellite connection is fast. The database is useful. And if you look around hard enough, you may find it at sale prices as low as $120, which would be a great value. Then why did I give it just 3 stars? First, the antenna reception is mediocre. The database is basic. The software is not the most intuitive. Instead of "Stay on the highway", the voice instruction says "Keep left", which still confuses me sometimes.
Summary: I asked for a basic GPS for Christmas and got this one. I know nothing about GPS so I have nothing to compare it too. The first place we were going was to the Philadelphia zoo as we live in NJ. We know how to get there, but wanted to see how the Mio worked. I hit Points of Interest and it didnt have it!! I mean the Philly zoo!! Since we didnt have an exact address then your out of luck.
