Summary: Sure, it takes a little getting used to, but once you get the software down, you got yourself a winning combo of a WM5 Pocket PC with Wifi & Bluetooth and an excellent GPS with TeleNAV software preinstalled with Maps of ALL 50 states. The downside to this technology? The battery life is unremarkable; about an hour with Wifi & Bluetooth on using the GPS.
Summary: Its not too bad of a product, the wireless card works great in it. It even works with my stereo bluetooth headset. One problem with it is that if it is left alone without turning it on, it won't turn on, and i have to plug it into the charger and reset it. I dont know if its a problem with the device itself or the battery. The gps part is ok, just wish you could get updated maps on it.
Summary: I think that this is very functional and well executed device. Once you get used to the software it is accurate and easy to use. Very good car mount which allows for many configurations inside your car. WiFi and Bluetooth both work well and fast. Windows Mobile is not any worse or better then other hand held PC. Messaging and sinchronization work OK and this could be reasonable travel companion rather then laptop.
Summary: So basically, I have found this product to be more then what I needed intially, but that isn't a bad thing. I have to admit that the GPS program that comes with it " MIO MAP" was a horrible program, It wasn't easy to use, and I am a computer tech. There were just a lot of problems connecting with the GPS, that is untill I installed my own GPS software which is TomTom Navigator 6 for PDA & Smart Phones.
Summary: Easy to use and idiot friendly! Couldn't have made a better birthday present for my husband as he frequently gets lost and forgets things like my birthday! He claims that it could use a longer battery life & Mio is not currently offering map updates. The extra long car charger cord comes in handy as well.
Summary: Very good GPS, plus fully functional PDA. Short battery life - if you are going to use WIFI or bluetouth its just 20-40 minuties. Bigest advantage of PDA GPS - you can install software from different vendor. I tried to use Skype on this unit (WIFI). Built-in mic has very bad quality and I can't connect and re-direct sound stream to the bluetouth headset.
Summary: I did some research on this product before hand and I've been using it for a couple of months now. This product does exactly as it says it will do. The wireless works great. My kid likes to play the games on it. The gps works well, the unit starts up and loads quickly. ok to the cons.. The gps sometimes takes 5 mins to find the gps which is kinda long when your waiting on it. But once locked it rarily lost signal, and if it did it would only be for a second.
