Mio C230 Review
CNet has their review up of the Mio Digiwalker C230,and overall they rated it pretty well for an entry level device. The editors lambasted the Mio C220 for its dark screen which I agree was not as bright in use as I would have liked, but was very passable for an entry level GPS. The Mio C230 has made a change to a brighter screen and CNet seems to think that it's acceptable now.
The big thing that Mio has done is to offer Text-to-speech in this little device. The unit is a cleanly designed device that runs the Mio Map software that is running on all of their current models, so it should be familiar to anyone who has read my recent reviews of Mio GPS models.
I have a Mio C230 in for review right now, and am in the process of evaluating and writing it up. In the meantime, if you would like to see what Bonnie Cha and the folks over at CNet think of the mio C230, check them out.

I bought the MIO C230 two years ago I called and wrote them two or three times. The first time I told them I was having trouble getting to my destination and the unit keeps telling my to turn around. They said they are coming out with new maps but do not know when and I should check back with them. Almost a year still having trouble with the unit I called them back and they said they still have no new maps. I called them again in January of this year and they said to me. Mr. Veno, Didn't anyone tell you there was a recall on that unit. There is a update in their Estore to fix it and with new maps. I told them that I had a problem with this unit since I bought it and would they let me have the fix for free. They said no,that I had to buy it because it is out of the Guarantee. I much rather buy a different brand then pay $70.00 for something they new did not work right.
