>> Hi, this is Bonnie Cha senior editor at CNE.com and today we're taking a first look at the Mio C520. This is actually a really great value a GPS device for your car. It's got this nice sleek design probably one of the best designs I've seen it's really nice and thin. It has this large 4.3 inch screen, but tends to fade a little bit in the sunlight. But if you adjust the back lighting and the viewing angle it turns out okay. You get a lot of stuff for just about 400 dollars. With the C520 you get Bluetooth, you get text to speech functionality, as well as your usual turn by turn directions. The directions were accurate, but the routing wasn't always efficient. So, it's not as great as the Tomtom. And it also does multimedia it has video, a music player and a picture viewer. I would actually probably use this as a video player since it's so small and it has this nice screen. Very good value and I would defiantly get it if you're looking for around the 400 dollar range you'll get a lot for your money. I'm Bonnie Cha this has been the Mio C520. ^M00:00:58 [ Music ]

Mio C520 Navigation Receiver Review
The good: The Mio C520 GPS device offers a thin and sleek design with a spacious touch screen. The system also has text-to-speech functionality, integrated Bluetooth, and multimedia capabilities.
The bad: The C520 was slightly off the mark when tracking our location, and route recalculations weren't always efficient. In addition, the Bluetooth and multimedia features are slightly limited in functionality.
The bottom line: The sleek Mio C520 is a good-value GPS device, packing in advanced navigation features, a large screen, and other extras for an affordable price. However, you can get a better user experience and smoother performance from competing systems.
