Via Michelin X930 Review
Via Michelin is coming to the US with models in the wings showing up at the FCC, and the lower end Via Michelin X930 selling over the holidays for a low price. Don’t know how many were sold, but it sounds like this one has some troubles, at least with the European installation. The thin design is attractive, and so is the name; one recognized for quality. In a recent review that showed up at Pocket Link in the UK, things went horribly wrong for the reviewer. The unit couldn’t navigate to his home or his office…. Ouch!
The unit seems impressive, thin, SiRF star III chipset, includes some Michelin guidebook information, etc.
The comedy continues, with turn directions in the middle of the highway, and a confusing Points of Interest interface and you have a disaster.
It’s worth a read. It’s easy to design a GPS, but it’s hard to design a good GPS. Proven again.
