Review: Mio P550 PDA/GPS
Nice Review over at Clove on the Mio P550 GPS/PDA system. Overall, the Mio P350 has a windows system that also incorporates the GPS functionality for a smooth transition between applications. Mio is tearing up the GPS world lately with the launch of their Mio H610 GPS, a small pocketable and purse-able GPS that has a lot of people talking. The P550 come fairly well equipped with the SiRF Star III chipset, a 400 Mhz processor and 128MB of memory.
The unit is also WiFi capable, but then again who would dare offer a PDA that is not? The review points out that this is pretty useful, as the GPRS connection can be slower and more costly if you are paying by time or size of download on your mobile plan. Overall, the value of the unit is what comes through; solid PDA and a GPS on-board too. "If you need GPS and want a good quality powerful PDA I can think of very few other places to look than the P550." - Not bad

Interesting device but after owning it for a year and having nothing but problems I am fed up with it and with Mio customer support. Looking at many user review sites the issues all seem the same. The units battery life gets shorter and shorter and the unit must be hard reset on a regular basis. I have not been able to leave it turned off for more then 2 days without it draining it's battery for no reason and having to be hard reset. Even on charge I have had it not want to turn on and have to be hard reset. I am not the only one with these issues.
It would be a great device if it worked or if Mio actually stood behind it and fixed the problems.
