Pros: gps accuracy, battery life, looks, screen layout intuitive
Cons: instruction manual included basic, pricey compared to a car gps
"Bought this as I am fed up with getting lost & carrying bulky maps. Taking the unit out of the box it has a pleasing feel to it, it feels reassuringly weighty & solid & looks like an expensive piece of kit, which it is. Why is it possible to be able to get a step by step car GPS for a quarter of the price with similar feaures? Upon using the device on aride it is pinpoint accurate, I ran my normal cyclo computer to compare speed & distance & they were almost identical so now only use the Mio.
The instructions were exceptionally disappointing, for the price I expected an in depth booklet but only received a very limited Quick Start guide. After trawling through the Internet I eventually found the full user guide which I have now printed off. I still struggle to download routes from a GPX format & have finally got to grips, I think, with downloading routes from the Mio site. I find that once loaded the instructions on screen are easy to follow & very accurate. In direct sunlight the screen is difficult to read but upon touching the screen it lights up making it clear to read. Even after a 7 hour ride the battery still had some life in it.
Overall I am very pleased with this product but technology novices be prepared to be patient whilst learning how to use it.
