Summary: This unit has all the features that you'd look for in a PDA. Getting them to work, Ha!!! you want that too; aren’t you picky. First the GPS takes longer than forever to acquire satellites from cold start. It is not uncommon to sit in an open field for 15 minutes and still not have acquired the satellites Second, the battery life is worse than terrible and that is not only because the battery does not have the capacity but also because of software glitches that causes the...
Summary: The GPS is helpful, but at this point is the only way I can use the product. The company has not made a driver for windows vista and when I was forced to buy a new computer when my computer crashed I got a windows vista computer. I spent alot of money on textbooks for work to download on the ppc and I can no longer use them because of the incompatibility with my computer. I tried to contact the company regarding this problem, but they don't seem to care.
Summary: I purchased this from a local store because I figured it was a good buy for all the features. When I got it home I found out that it was very slow to boot up and the battery life was horrible. I tried to find tech support on it to see if it was a common problem and it took me a couple of hours before I found something. The problem was that it was on the European site and not the US site.
Summary: I don't recommend this item. There are a couple of pluses, but there are a number of problems: First, the pluses-- --The price is good for a GPS unit and PDA. --The SIRF III GPS received is responsive, receiving good reception even inside my house (except for the basement). --The Wifi is fast. Now the minuses: --The battery life is poor. I ran through a fully charged battery in a little over an hour with the Wifi on. --The screen is poor quality.
Excerpt: I had the Mio 168 gps PDA before this, which was sadly stolen from my car. That was an excellent piece of kit - well designed and easy to use, with good battery life. So I was more than happy to stick with the Mio brand and step up to the newly launched Mio P550. This still had the gps, but benefitted from a much larger screen, more powerful processor, a Wifi Link, bluetooth Windows Mobile 5, a pleasing design.
Pros: Features, WiFi, touch screen, build quality, processor power .
Excerpt: When purchasing the Mio P550 I was after a navgation system that could easily be put in my car then arriving at my destination easily fitting in my pocket for security. The Mio P550 is a nice shape and size meaning it does fit nicely in your pocket unlike most brick shaped GPS systems you tend to find. What is even better is its also a PDA, so not just will it tell you where to go, it will be your personal organiser, your mp3 player, your mobile internet.
Pros: Accurate, Good Value for money, uses SD cards
Summary: Il prodotto nel complesso è di buona fattura, anche se ormai obsoleto per mancanza di possibilità a comunicare telefonicamente. Senza dilungarmi sulle funzioni, vi elenco subito il difetto principale: E UN SISTEMA CHIUSO. A meno di artifizi, non si può inercambiare il SO, né la batteria. Altro grosso difetto è la completa assenza di un blocco tasti. Il palmare vi si accende in tasca e ve lo ritrovate già scarico dopo mezz'ora.
Excerpt: Die Organizerfunktionen sind umfangreich und lassen wohl keine Wünsche offen. Will man den Mio aber als Navi benutzen, so nimmt er erst nach ca. 4-5 Km o. 5 Min. den Kontakt zum GPS auf. Soll heißen, der Empfänger scheint ziemlich schwach zu sein. Auch der TMC-Empfang funktioniert trotz geeignetem Zubehör so gut wie nie. Habe zuvor ein Medion Gerät getestet und hatte o.g. Probleme nicht. Habe den Mio zurückgesandt u.
