Excerpt: I got this item to replace my Mio 168. It was bought second hand from Ebay at a decent price of £70. I bought it for hiking navigation and was not that struck by it so sold this item on. For a simple Navigation and PDA unit it was okay but not for outdoor use really. The unit runs on Windows operating system and so sync with your PC very well and has all the normal Outlook, Word and excell you would expect.
