Summary: How do you rate this item? >>>>>>>>>> 0,0000000000001 STAR ! I contacted the CS from Michelin yesterday abouth my X950T bought in 2008 about a MAP update ! This is what I get back "We would like to let you know first that our after sales department is only available by e-mail correspondence. Following your update request, we can confirm that ViaMichelin ceased all GPS activity in 2008 and is no longer able to provide mapping adjustments for ViaMichelin GPS devices.
NO USA CUSTOMER SUPPORT, NO MAP UPDATES - DON'T BUY
27 November 2010
Summary: I bought my X-930 two years ago. Since then the there have been lot of changes in the maps and I wanted to update the maps, as the GPS info became increasingly unreliable. Unfortunately there is NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT in US, no physical address, NO PHONE NUMBER TO CONTACT, NO MAP UPDATES. Go to [...] and see for yourself. I am left hanging and have to now spend another $200 to buy a new GPS device. I recommend don't buy this product, instead purchase a brand made in US.
Summary: Nice display but hard to navigate thru. The menu system is not very intuitive and you can't just go back from several of the screens which means you have to start over. The routing function is ok if you are going to stay on the hwy but otherwise it is lacking. If you can pick one up for under 20 bucks it might be ok but you would be better off to invest in a name brand unit.
Summary: This basic ViaMichelin X-930 Portable Handheld GPS Receiver was good for the cheap price, but I haven't been able to find updated maps for it. It will get you where you are going, but may take longer if there are new roads that are not in the unit. Purchased on Feb 05, 2010 for only 46.90 which included shipping, made it a deal to good to pass up since I didn't own a GPS.
Summary: i bought this item cause it was cheap and i needed it, but turns out i needed it more then i thought. my car got towed and it was hard to get to the tow place so my friend took us to my dads to get our spare car seat and we got the mail and there it was the gps we hooked up it worked right away and it took us there we would have been so lost
Summary: OK, it works well. But- they stopped updating the maps in 2008 (as near as I can tell) and it doesn't work intuitively. ViaMichelin does have a good website, though. The TomTom will get to a map in maybe two clicks, the ViaMichelin is more like six. It does have a wide screen, a built-in stylus, a really sturdy mount, high quality charger, etc. It doesn't support text-to-speech so it's "Turn left" not "Turn left on Main Street".
