Mio DigiWalker C230

 

Design The Mio DigiWalker C230 is one heck of a small portable navigation system. At 4.2 inches wide by 3.2 inches high by 0.9 inch deep and 6.2 ounces, the C230 is more compact than most PDAs, and while the size is great for transporting between cars...

The Mio DigiWalker C230 portable navigation system offers text-to-speech functionality and an affordable price tag. Its screen is much improved over its predecessor's.

The onscreen keyboard is a bit cramped, and we wish there was an easier way to adjust the volume.

With an improved display and the addition of text-to-speech functionality, the Mio DigiWalker C230 is a solid and affordable entry-level portable navigation system for GPS newbies.

Mio C230 review

 

I've been trying out the Mio C230 for the past week or so. Also know as the Mio DigiWalker C230, this unit updates the C220, adding one thing most low-end units don't have — text to speech. This means that you'll get "turn left on Oak Street in 200...

An excellent entry in the budget GPS market, the Mio DigiWalker C230 GPS will please cash-strapped shoppers with its solid performance, text-to-speech functionality, and entry-level price.

Clear, bright screen; highly portable; text-to-speech directions; good features, performance for the price

Some small onscreen icons can be tricky to press; cramped onscreen keyboard; no multimedia features or Bluetooth

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

"Stay away from Mio C230."

 

This thing is a piece of garbage. I've considered throwing mine out the window twice because it's caused me so much frustration. I'm not saying that it can't get you on the right track if you're lost, but it usually takes the longest route to get you...

It's small and probably won't break easily.

It's completely unreliable. Twice in the last week it's taken me to a different address than the one I input. If it does take you to the right place, it will definitely take you on the longest route possible. Don't buy it.

Consumer review by:

"Great if you like driving in circles"

 

I've gone 27 miles to get 4 miles from where I started. Also, instead of telling to go east/west, it wild direct you towards a town, so you need to guess which way to go. It is great for an adventure or long drive, but very poor if you are in a hurry....

Gets you there.

200 feet off, so if you are in town or confusing intersections, you always go the wrong way

Consumer review by:

"Very disappointing!"

 

I have used this GPS for about 4 months. There was one occasion where the street name was not in its database, even though the street had been there for at least 3 years. There was one time that it did not have the address I was looking for in it?s...

Inexpensive, has text-to-speech.

- Doesn't speak directions in time for you to follow them.

Consumer review by:

"I've got the best GPS out there!"

 

I like it the way it is. It has been designed good! From visually appealling to functional. I like it that I can see when my next destination is coming up as well as hear it only if I wanted to concentrate on the road. You can do tricks with the device...

Sometimes, it takes you in a roundabout way to your destination. It gets you there!

Nothing!!!
