    GREAT UNIT AT A GREAT PRICE !

    Posted
    RICH2

    i have this unit for about 2 months - i used it for 5 trips already. the routing is fast and effective, it is accurate and does exactly what it is designed for - navigating. while it doesn't have extras like mp3-pic viewer-bluetooth(i don't need them anyway), it is great for taking you exactly where you need to go. i bought this for one reason - directions for my trips. it excels at this function and is fairly easy to use. the display is nicely configured with many options for the screen info. i have no complaints with the operation, and am very surprised at how quickly it gets a signal and locks it in. it also includes millions of points of interest, and i have used them along with my trip info. if you should happen to not pay attention to the voice or screen directions and make a wrong turn - the unit will recalculate in a few seconds and get you back on track. again for the price you get a product that does exactly what you buy it for, no more - no less. so if directions are all you need, buy this and save hundreds instead of other way higher priced units.

    YesterdayI went got the Mio Digi Walker c220 at besy buy in Hyannis mass. Well I was not sure how happy i would be with the product i got. I have a firend that has the same one and he said that it was a great system. So I waited it it cam back on sale. I bought it and pluged it in on the car. And had it take me back to my house. it found the street with no problem. The only thing is that it it was not sure on the address. Now it is not this system all do i have heard. My father has one too and is not even this one. So do not let that make so u do not buy this system. For the money that you pay to by this it si more then u can bargan for. Ok yea it does not say the name of the street to trun on it. but it does tell u a head of tome when to make the trun. Now as far as the Poi Point of Intrest WOW you can not get a better one then this. It has 3.5 million poi The bes bart is that it gives you the phone number of the place. I mean Come on that is a great system. you will love all the system. So go out and buy this onn

    Great Value!

    This is an outstanding value. We recently took this on a trip to the Carolinas. It was very helpful. For instance, when driving through big cities, it will warn you to ie "keep left" after exiting right. Sometimes it picks out a funky route. When it does, change your route preferences: "Fast, economical, or short". It pays to briefly review the route before you actually get on the road. Once, it routed me off interstate off-ramp, only to send me back up the on-ramp. I suppose it thought it was shorter. That only happened once. Most of its routes make sense. The point of interest database is very good. I found almost everything I looked for; even surprisingly, my own business. The menus are not especially intuitive, but become second nature shortly. We love this unit and we always use the voice with the British accent!

    Nice and compact entry level gps

    Me and my husband are first time GPS buyers. I was drawn to this Mio model because of its price as well as the decent reviews from various websites. I'm impressed with: (a)its route recalculation speed (takes a couple of seconds to re-route), (b) contrary to some of reviews I have read, the system is highly readable during the daytime even with excessive sunlight, (c) very light and compact and it's also easily mounted and removed and (d) accurate and the POI's impressed me in its scope (I found my uncle's restaurant listed on it when I was in the vicinity). My dislikes are: (a) even when the volume is set to full blast it is still disappointingly low and (b) it froze on me a couple of times requiring me to restart, and another minor problem is that it loses signal when driving under some underpasses.

    Good unit for the price.

    Previous to the purchase of this unit, I did plenty of homework and determined that this unit was a great value. I use my Mio mounted on my motorcycle and I am impressed at the end of every trip. I travel alot in the mountains of western North Carolina. While previously there were numerous times when running low on fuel on back roads was a concern, now I can easily calculate a safe route to the nearest fuel station. I didn't want to invest a great deal of $ into a unit with all the possibilities that can go wrong mounted on a motorcycle such as weather, vibrations and theft. The Mio c220 also has a headphone plug-in that I plug ear buds into. No other models in this price range had this feature. I am very satisified with this unit.

    Terrific value

    I bought this in preparation for our summer vacation. I spent a few days using it locally to get used to it. I really like the simplicity and accuracy of the product. The Digiwalker was able to show local points of interest and give accurate directions. I used it on our drive from south Florida to north Georgia and Tennessee. Even in extremely rural areas it was able to give me accurate directions. I did have some difficulty with a few of the recommendations on very small back roads, but generally, it was very reliable. The only real negative I have to say for it is that the display is not bright enough to use in direct sunlight.

    Good value for the money...but

    Sometimes it routes you in funny ways. For less than $200 you can't beat the portability and database. The maps were created in April of 2007 and it has a pretty good set of POI's with phone numbers. Post Offices, Boat lines, gas stations, motels. It knows and can route you to your destination pretty well. Someday, they'll make an intuitive GPS that learns from your travel. For now, this unit will have to do. It got me to Phenixville, PA from NW Ohio, but I don't think it knows the best way home from Sandusky, OH. Maybe the C221 will do better. I'm also looking forward to how they handle map upgrades.

    Out of the Box and running

    I purchased this product for a new job where I have to travel from place to place locally. I went straight into the store picked it up and had it installed on my dash and my next appointment location routed in minutes. It took me longer to open the box than it was for me to figure out how to use it! This has been a life saver for me. The voice is not annoying; there are many great options for instance the Day/Night time coloring and the "3D" cockpit view. The screen is bright and large enough to see clearly, but not too large to block any view of the road.

    Completely Intuitive Device

    Sparkie

    I had to meet a friend in Boston and take her to a restaurant. Neither of us was familiar with the city. I picked up this GPS device on the way. It took less than 5 minutes to set it up in the parking lot and get familiar with it and I was on my way. For the first time I did not get lost trying to find an address in Boston! I will print out the manual and read it. But, so far, the on-screen prompts have lead me to everything I need. Definitely worth the price. I only hope that a disk is available with maps of Canada.

    I have had this GPS for a couple weeks now. I have found that it works very well and is reliable. It has taken me to every destination I have asked it to. I have nothing bad to say about it. It seems to be an excellent value for the money. The included points of interest includes a lot of places. I would highly recommend this gps to anyone!

    I had issues with this

    IloveBestBuy

    Touchscreen is not sensitive enough and you end up flicking the screen. This causes you to hit buttons that you did not want to. This also gives bad directions and it will sometimes tell me to turn around in the middle of a route when it realizes that it led me in the wrong direction.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I've had my Mio for a few months now and it has treated me well. Very user friendly and easy to use. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to get a signal and there are some POI categories that I think are missing, but it's a pretty nice product. I would definitely recommend it.

    I use this navagation system when i travel. I like to give it up to this company. Mio Navigation is the best. plus i love the fact that you can zoom in and out and pan and change colors of the maps add your favorite poi. and so much more.

    This was a great purchase. Best bang for the buck. My wife loves it. She even takes it out of the car and plays with it while watching TV.
