In 1/2008 purchased a MIO C230 GPS device.From day 1 it started throwing an error an rebooting itself. Contacted manufacturer's support, was told to do a hard reset, then to reinstall software and ultimately to send it to them to reflush it. Returned the device to me after the flushing, still same problem. Called them again (their customer support is in India), the person I spoke with told me again to do a hard reset, reflush and the whole 9 yards they told me before.
I told her I already did all these steps and even sent it to their lab to be checked.Then she said this is 'normal operation' - the fact that every 10-15 minutes it throws a fatal error and then reboots itself and there is nothing she or anyone else in the company can do for me.
