Summary: I purchased the X930 for my wife. The con they list is probably the most important fact they can mention. It is difficult to the point of impossible (occasionally) to input and find locations.
Summary: Out of the box - it hasn't been easy to figure out how to get around. I haven't had time to read the manual but I never had to with my Garmin. It didn't charge in the cigarette lighter on my rental car and left me stranded in Dallas - Lost. I had to call for help.
Summary: I have to agree with some of the lower star comments. First, it is not user friendly. Second, it will not locate alot of addresses. Third, the instructions are very poor. Fourth and final, the screen is very difficult to read during the day. I am in the process of exchange to a better rated unit.

Summary: This thing is not too user friendly or intuitive. If you like pushing buttons this may be the model for you. I've bought the Garmin c330 unit since (after I returned the ViaMichelin model) and that is working much better for me...much more user friendly and intuitive.
Summary: It looks like I bought this unit based on the very positive reviews only to come back and see the few less than positive reviews that are brand new. I've had this happen on several products now from Amazon - product has a lot of good reviews, I buy it and by the time I go back to review it there are...
Summary: I really tried to like the Via Michelin, bought it with every intention of loving it in March 2007. But I feel compelled to tell most of you to "keep shopping." I bought it due to the excellent price, small thin size(compared to Garmin). I thought "how bad can it be?
Summary: I bought this unit and decided to test it to see the performance. Unfortunately ViaMichelin didnt work good enough and I decided to return. ViaMichelin X-930: - Very compact and nice design (one of the best looking on the market) - Good sattelite signal reception - The sound is very good - Day/night...
Summary: Bought this on Friday, worked with it today. It could not find my address or street, so one thinks use the gps coords to help. Well then you have to key in the entire coords, the unit should be able to default your current position and allow you to route from there.
Summary: Although purchased at a low price, the device is difficult to update using their software. You can add Points of Interest via their software but I could not understand if its possible to update the map that's on the SD memory card.
Summary: I bought my unit from J&R Music World for $199 with free shipping. I was immediatly impressed with the small size of the unit and the clear display. It picked up a GPS signal almost immdiatly and seemed to be fairly accurate.
