GPS Review: Dual XNAV3500P Portable GPS Navigation System

Well, it'srefreshing to see that people can be honest in their reviews; here's some information on a GPS that you should stay away from. Here we have some words from a straight forward review that ranks the Dual XNAV3500P as Poor: "What really differentiates navigation systems is the quality of the user interface and routing algorithms. Unfortunately, the XNAV3500P from Dual Electronics misses the mark on both."

At a street price of $999, this thing isn't cheap, and for that money you could get one of the biggies with better features and proven track records.

GPS Review: Mio 269 - "Mediocre"

In a recent CNet review, the Mio 269 was knocked for its sluggish performance and a messy interface. The Mio is a hard drive based GPS device that gives you a bit of room to store MP3's to play later - although not while you are navigating for some terrible reason. so while Moi's website claims to have 500MB free for MP3 storage, and the box says 700MB, the actual drive shows 1GB free, whoops. I guess the tech dept didn't talk to the packaging department on this one. Not a terrible mistake. It gets worse, read on......

GPS Lodge Review: MotionBased Website Helps Analyze GPS Data

MotionBased website service takes data obsession to a whole new level. It's a well thought out service that allows you to upload your GPS track data to their website, and allows you to analyze it in various ways through charting and other graphical methods. The other key aspect of the website is that you can also search through their very large TrailNetwork (>90,000 uploaded routes available to search) and look at prospective routes that you might enjoy. Overall, it the system still has a ways to go as far as features and ability to help you get the best out of the data, but the technology and usefulness is still impressive eye-candy, and fun to use. Best of all, the standard features are free so you can try before you buy (plus membership is around $8 - 12/mo.).

GPS Review: DigiWalker 269 GPS MP3 Player

The Mio DigiWalker 269 is a portable GPS unit that allows you to navigate turn-by-turn in car, or on foot. Not only does it navigate, it also plays MP3 audio files with its built-in player. Not bad in a little handheld device.

Overall sounds like a pretty good unit, but is missing some of the tweaks that may hold it back from being a great unit, like not being able to listen to MP3's and navigate at the same time. Despite this, there are a lot of good things to say about it.......

You can see our other postings on the Mio 269 for background: Announcement, and then first review from the Inquirer, also a pretty good overview and first hand review from DV Hardware.
