Mio C250, same form factor as the C220


Software and Map versions:
"The miomap is v3.2 feb 21 2007
The State maps say 2006.10 (2006 Tele Atlas N.V.[070115] states
The Basemap is 2006.01 NIMA VMAP0 [060802]
Navagation engine Nav N Go Kft
Hope this is usefull!" - Posted by kturley

Using MioMap v3.2 skins : details here

Unlocking the C220 : details here


b]Original Post[/b] : so I'm looking to replace my old Ipaq/Pharos Ostia solution with an all-in-one, and the Mio looks just about right... it's bothersome moving the GPS mouse between three cars, and now I've pinched the cable on the second mouse, what a pain.

But then I stumble on this, the Mio C220, it looks pretty sleek, like a Nuvi. Is this new on the market? Any comparisons to the C310x?

It looks like it does not have the MP3 player built in...

Should I be the first one to buy it? I'd like to know if it's "hackable".

I also read they shipped with newer maps, perhaps that meant only in Europe. I know someone that purchased one, I will have them check once its delivered

"Mio has started the roll of new products for the warmer driving months ahead. They have the new C320 and C520 planned for later in the spring, but the new C220 snuck onto the Circuit City website and is officially listed at the Mio Euro site. The unit features the new Mio Map software, and most notably the new TeleAtlas map sets."

I like it so far and it is very fast. Recalcs are dead on and sigal aquisition took only seconds!

Just hope someone can figure out how to get into the WINCE v5.0 so I can add mp3 and pic viewer!

The miomap is v3.2 feb 21 2007
The State maps say 2006.10 (2006 Tele Atlas N.V.[070115] states
The Basemap is 2006.01 NIMA VMAP0 [060802]

I visited Circuit City last week with the purpose of reviewing/buying a C310X, only to find that they had discontinued it and had replaced it with the C220. After a few comparisons in the store, I started feeling like a victim of the old "bait and switch" - other than the new maps and 1 year of included traffic cam reports (pretty useless here in the US), the C220 seemed to have *less* features (no MP3, maps only on the SD card, no data cable) for *more* money ($249US vs. $199). I ended up ordering the C310x off the CC site just before they sold out.

2007.4 maps don't exist, the latest TeleAtlas maps are 2007.1 at this point and only in beta testing as far as I know. Anyway as discussed at length in the "map problems" thread the actual updating that takes place between various generations is anyone's guess and neither TA nor NT communicate on what's new and improved. In many areas the TA 2006.10 maps are a retread from the 2005.2 maps with old problems previously fixed reappearing...

Since the C220 is clone of the C250, I've been using it in Europe since the end of last year, I'll agree with MidLifeinMI that it is step back. The buttons are gone, the 1Gb flash too (it might still have 64Mb though if memory serves) and it generally feels "cheaper".

Big surprise...there is no way Mio could sustain the $199 price point on a high-end unit like the C310x. That price was likely a combination of "breaking into the US market" and selling a 6+ month old device that had made it's money in Europe where it was sold almost 3x the price.

Could one of the people who knock the c220 Please post the difference in specs so readers could see why you seem to believe the C310x is so much better.

My c220 has internal memory where I am storing my most common maps and it plays MP3, vids, and Pics from the memory card fine. I like the interface and so far the only thing I would change is make the speaker louder. Are the processors so much differerent? And is internal memory so important? The C310x in it's white IPOD'ish dress looks "cheaper" to me.

It's been discussed above, no need to react like that, just sick to the facts. It's not a bad unit, it's just an entry level unit that was built with cost in mind when the Cx10 were mid to top-range units. The build is different, the buttons are gone, the hard reset switch too, the internal flash has gone down from 1/2Gb to, the lack of built-in TMC (C710 in Europe), Bluetooth (C510 in Europe) etc...there are some side by side pictures here in the FRA forums.

does the c220 have the same shortcomings as the c310x with address not being accurate (100-400 feet off from the real world address)

How far off are the location pointer to actual?
I find it about 10 - 15 Meters. Im in florida.

All the maps except 4 fit on the 1 gb SD card included.
There were 4 maps internal Maine, and 3 others. (cant remember because I moved them off to my HD and just loaded Florida, Georgia, waterway, and Basemap to the internal memory)I do not travel out of Florida very often and wanted some CSI episodes on th SD card. I can put them on the SD if I travel cross Country.

For those who have the C220 in hand:

What comes bundled in the box? Does it include an AC adapter?
