    Picked up mine at my local CC today... here's a way to get a better deal (from http://www.gpslodge.com):

    "I got the Mio C310x from Staples and had them price match Circuit City's website ($199). The other cool thing to do is look on eBay for the coupons; I found one that had $30 off any purchase $150 or over. So my total price came out to $169 plus tax and free shipping."

    Also note that their maps that ship with this unit are dated Feb 2005 and new updates may not be free. From Mio website:

    "Q1
    How often are map updates made available and when will the next update be offered?
    A
    Mio Technology will offer a map update in spring 2007 for our portable navigation devices
    We believe the new maps from our partners at Tele Atlas are the best digital maps ever commercially developed and we think our customers will find them reliable, complete and robust.
    In order to give our customers the best possible experience getting their Mio DigiWalker™ navigation device updated with this new map data, we are working with our retail partners to create a easy way have your Mio DigiWalker™ updated. Please check our website from time to time for map pricing and availability http://www.mio-tech.com."

    Also it's built on Windows CE and can be coaxed into communicating with ActiveSync... which means this unit is eminently hackable! Check out these sites for more info:

    The Mio rocks! It is VERY hackable. I have owned it for about two months or so now and it's great! The maps are pretty up today for the area I live in. The only grip I have about it is the Mio's routing. It tends to be a little strange, but once you figure it out it's usable.

    Once you start playing w/ it check out the Mio skins. They enable extra features and change the layout of the display. There are several and they are all great.

    Zanyguy mentioned GPSLodge earlier, but here's the link to the Mio forum. Tons of great info at the site.

    MIO Hackable

    From what I have read, you can install other mapping applications on the MIO. Tomtom or navman or anything. That's pretty damn cool. The device is essentially a receptacle for whatever mapping software you want use, an open source portable GPS if you will.

    Pretty much true, but you have to watch out cause it takes some work to get some of the apps to run.
