Pros none that I can think of.
Cons The unit is slow and it freezes up often, customer service treats you like it's your fault that the device doesn't work, the unit can't pinpoint where your exact location is most of the time.
Summary I was so excited when I bought this Mio Moov 310 GPS. Then within days of trying to use it I started having problems with it so I called the hotline # and they told me to reload the maps, I did and it worked kind of ok for my trip I took but it did take me two blocks farther than I needed to go.
Never having one of these things before I thought these glitches might be normal and the customer service reps assured me that they were normal.
Well, since then I have been asking people who have purchased other brands of GPS systems if they had these problems, they don’t!
So now it is one week past the return date on my sales receipt and I am stuck having to send this GPS in for repair.
Don't buy this product unless you want hassle.
Pros I was surprised at the accuracy of the street names pronounced. Touch screen is very easy to use. Inexpensive. Suction cup stays sealed to window.
Cons Power cord wasn't long enough for me to put exactly where I wanted it, but it is in a useful place.
Summary I bought this unit today at my local Radio Shack for 69.00 I have never owned one, but I have seen my brother use his Garmin and Tom Tom and this unit seems to do everything they can do and he spent like $129.00 and $169.00 for his. Like I said, had never operated one and I had mine going within 10 minutes of powering up. Very self explanatory. Was bright and sunny all day and screen visibility was never an issue. Voice was pleasant and very legible. Surprised at the features for the low price, especially the one year of free traffic updates. I would definitely recommend to family and/or friends...
Pros Easy to use, fast
Cons Few bells and whistles ( not important )
Summary The Mio Moov 300 is simple to use ( ounce you understand it ) and contrary to some reviews I find the satellite acquisition fast here in southwest Ohio. The route algorithm is more direct than my previous GPS. Also, for the money you get a large sceen, approximately 3.5 million POI's and text to speech.
I had a Magellan 22oot with the V2 software upgrade and did not like the routing. It wanted to send you through business routes, never direct and had only 1.5 million POI's. I gave the Mio Moov 300 a high rating based on my experience and routing frustration with the Magellan.
Pros tts, loads of options, accurate, fantastic price point
Cons potential to be sluggish at responding to screen touch
Summary Bought it to go to a couple of places where the street names aren't even known by some of the people that live there. It had everything down perfectly. The directions are easily modifiable to avoid areas you don't want to go, or avoid tolls, freeways that are busy, etc. The voices weren't annoying, and were easy to understand. Spoken street names is a plus, but not necessarily a deal maker/breaker. However, this one does give great pronunciations. It also comes with a 1 year free subscription for traffic alerts so that you can avoid areas where you might get stuck. The look of the unit is easily compatible with almost any interior of a car so it's not an eyesore, and the screen is easy to read even if the sun is at full blast. When scrolling through the preferences and other menus, I have experienced a slight delay in response, but there is a possibility that I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't read the review pointing it out. I think this is one of the best buys I've made in a long time. I recommend checking it out if you are looking.
