My wife bought me this Mitac Mio C510E from a TV shopping channel, pile of rubbish (wished she'd asked) tries to take me through fields and on roads that don't exist. Support is non existant, save your time, frustration and money; buy a better brand… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2007 by BeezaMark (6 reviews written)

I bought my Mitac Mio C510E reconditioned and saved £10 off the best retail price I'd seen previously. The C510E can be used pretty much straight out of the box, with a few niggling questions answered by visiting the Mio Tech website, registering the device and downloading the full manuals.
Street level mapping is reasonably accurate but don't expect it to be as detailed as the maps found on much more expensive devices. Keep your wits about you when the Mio tells you to make a turn as the maps… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2007 by jimsdub (1 review written)

Excellent maps and fast signal acquisition even with heat reflective windscreen. Reroute is within seconds of wrong turn and places you back to original route very quickly. Out of car and into pocket - great for walking or touring on foot, will take you back to start point by most direct route.
Overall probably the best portable Sat-Nav I have owned, and I have had the so called best. If you want the best you have got to know how to use it. I dare say they could simplify user operation but it… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2007 by DENNYDEE (1 review written)

Very disappointed with the Mitac Mio C510E....especially if I had been fined for driving the wrong way down a one way street.....it is good at directing you to your destination. On one occasion it told me to take the second road on the left, and as I passed the first road on the left, it said "turn back". So on this occasion it was useless.......I should have purchased an AA map and saved a lot of money on this useless thing. And trying to get any information from mitac is totally… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2007 by coolhen (1 review written)

I got this GPS after having a look round. I had Tomtom but I can tell you this is better and neater, it fits in your pocket and good price. When I got it out of the box it was up and running in about 4 min. It picks up GPS satellites just great. I can even pick them up in my house… Read Full Review

Procedure for loading maps. Look at the file size for the maps, and then consider where you want to go. If you want to travel every street in Europe (which will take you about 5000 years behind the wheel) buy a bigger card. Remember to create the folder and sub folder just like it says and there is no hassle.

Written on: 31/07/2006 by wallyandmo (1 review written)

An excellent unit let down by poor instructions and absolutely appalling level of support from Mitac. The provision of street level maps for 24 countries makes this very good value for anyone with the necessary technical expertise to load the maps into the unit. Unfortunately, 95% of people do not have this skill. If you're one of the 5%, this is a good buy. If you're not, don't even think about it. You will be on your own. Mitac will be no help at all. This is why I could not recommend it to… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2006 by Mike20 (9 reviews written)

I researched the different units for some time, and chose this because it seemed to be a new design, with the latest SiRFstar III GPS receiver and a 400 MHz processor.
I particularly wanted street level Euro mapping and it provided this on DVD.
I had to buy a SD card, but they are quite cheap now, as low as about £15 for 1Gb.
Route from UK, through France and into Spain is seamless, and really quick to calculate.

Unit comes with loads of features, MP3 player, Photo viewer and it acts as a… Read Full Review
