In yesterday’s column, I say nice things about the Mio C310x GPS, and I meant every word. Compared with tragic items such as the $699 Magellan RoadMate 6000t, the $250 (approximate street price) Mio is a heaven-sent bundle of good things, not the least being an ease of use and even a “night lighting” feature which makes the unit so very much easier to read at night, and its easy to use menu system.

There are things I might change about the device — I’d like an easier menu tree for entering new addresses, and perhaps some more voice options, even if, unlike the Magellan, I can at least get a British-accented voice to guide me along. But for the money, and considering some of the competition, you’d be very hard pressed to find a better value, and a better product, than this one. I recommend it highly, and thought you’d like to see a picture, close up.
