My sense of direction is crap. The screen is clear to read for directions and lanes well in advance. I feel secure in the knowledge it will get to my destination.

I thought the sat nav represents great value and operates very well. The spirit 7500 lm weu car navigation – grey arrived in a box with numerous factors and a guide. I did it the erroneous way and plugged the sat nav straight into the laptop, what you will need to do is transform on the sat nax and assure its in see of the sky and enter the activation code. I then ran the cd-rom and installed the software onto my pc and then plugged in the sat nav, no cable provided, but its a common variety usb fitting. Checked for updates, non for the british isles even so there ended up two european application updates. The fixing of the sat nav to window screen of the car is tough but manageable, however its does stat firmly in location. Utilized the sat nav to several site by moving into the postcode and variety. It then features various possibilities of how you want to get there, shortest, fastest, affordable and scenic. The sat nav is straight-ahead to use and the interface and voice instructions are clear. I will update on the longer phrase usage of the sat nav, i do not from employing preceding products if feasible some frequent perception and a sense of course will help in employing these types of a product.

This is a quite neat gps that performs quite very well and incredibly quick to set up. There is every thing in the box that you need to get you up and functioning. I have used these navigation aids far more or considerably less because they arrived as in business enterprise they can conserve you a large volume of time looking for an handle, which will save dollars. Even a lot more critical these days. You apply the suction mount to the windscreen where you are relaxed, but, not in your eye line. Make certain you really don’t as you will be breaking the legislation. The power guide goes from a electric power outlet to the back again of the instrument. Uncover the most effective way to get the cable there so that it does not get in the way of your driving. There is a power on and off button.Here are the specifications for the Mio Technology MIO 8500 Spirit LM WEU Car Navigation System – Space Grey:

  • An excellent purchase
  • use the disc to get instructions not the best as getting in the car with instruction manual better

My garmin sat nav gave up the ghost just lately so i was hunting ahead to the arrival of this new product. The show is fantastic – awesome massive graphics, clear, straightforward to read through style and design. It will come with the common mounting arm and package to repair it to the window – standard, no troubles there. The system found the satellites simply and the approach to enter your place is straightforward. I’ve had no difficulties at all with locating unique locations. From the product description it seems like this is the most standard product in this variety. Individually i would not require any more capabilities or performance than this provides. And that will come from somebody with no sense of way or map-examining potential who absolutely depends on a sat nav to get me wherever exterior of my typical route to and from do the job.

Ideal for shipping driver. . Pin position genuine-time accuracy and rapid loading. With life span uk and europe maps and upates.

A well manufactured item which navigates very well showing 3d junction views and lane guidance.

I have had about 5 mio sat navs went away from them tried a garmin but came back to mio because they are the only ones that have house numbers along the bottom as you drive down a road. Well pleased with it and a good price for a 6 inch sat nab.

First rate satellite navigation. Well packaged and quick delivery. I have used this particular model before, i have found it to be very reliable. The maps are accurate, audio is clear and crisp, display is sharp, very friendly user interface a child could operate i highly recommend this product before buying more expensive versions.

Not as good as previous models. This will be the last of several mio satnavs that i have purchased. It was faulty at the beginning but i was able to sort that with resetting with help from the supplier. It is the most expensive one i have bought but definitely the worst. Useful features from previous models have been omitted and stupid ones have been introduced. Most irritating is that it switches on when you enter the car and then automatically switches off when the engine is started, leaving you having to press buttons on the screen just at the moment you wish to pull away. To pinpoint a location is now a three stage operation instead of an external button. The worst thing is that the mapping hasn’t caught up with pedestrianised roads that have been around for ages, and it is very slow in coming up with a detour. In fact i think it is too slow generally which is a nuisance on large multiroute roundabouts. I curse this model every time i go to a big city and have completely lost confidence in it.

Still getting used to this device but definitely worth your consideration. . I have been a long time user of tomtom and garmin gps’s and iphone and would not have considered this until it was sent for review. I have to say i am pleasantly surprised by the performance of this device. The touch screen is very responsive – better than the garmin’s and tomtoms i have used previously. The route selection is straight forward and the display is clear and easy and navigation has worked well. My only real concern is whether gps devices have had their day – ideally i would prefer to just use my phone, but the reality is that if you have a phone with a small screen, or it is not hooked into the car audio then a phone is neither clear nor as loud as a dedicated gps unit. Definitely worth consideration before plumping for either the garmin or tomtom.

This is a fairly neat gps that works very well and very easy to set up. There is everything in the box that you need to get you up and running. I’ve used these navigation aids more or less since they arrived as in business they can save you a huge amount of time looking for an address, which saves money. Even more essential nowadays. You apply the suction mount to the windscreen where you are comfortable, but, not in your eye line. Make sure you don’t as you will be breaking the law. The power lead goes from a power outlet to the back of the instrument. Find the best way to get the cable there so that it doesn’t get in the way of your driving. There is a power on and off button.

Gets you from a to b (just rather slowly). Once upon a time and many years ago – someone said that “sat nav’s” would have limited use to the public and that only large businesses and governments would require the navigational aid. Fast forward to today and the idea of getting to your destination using paper maps, verbal instructions and road signs along seems very alien. A good sat nav in your car can provide a valuable resource providing you a wealth of information from routes and traffic to safety, speed limits and route planning. “mio” is not a manufacturer that i have used often and considering the low cost of their spirit 7500 lm weu car navigation unit – i wasn’t expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised while also slightly disappointed with what i found. Starting with the basics, this unit offers maps for western europe covering 44 countries (including the uk) and being controlled and updated from the included “more desktop application. 3 inch touch screen with a built in speaker to the rear of the unit. A range of the typical features such as route planning and information as well as safety and other “standard” stuff.

The last satnav i bought was a tomtom one, many years ago. It had a very small screen and more than once i got confusing over which slip road to take. My how things have moved on. I was very impressed with this mio unit. I usually drive with the sound off, but since i was testing, i left it on, and actually found it helpful. It giving you spoken road numbers to look for on signs, and road names, even small roads. The map was very clear, and i particularly liked the junction help, where the screen jumps to a 3d (i have it on 2d maps normally, i just prefer it) representation of the junction you are approaching and draws nice big arrows on the lanes you should be in, excellent. I liked that when you type in postcodes or places, it takes letters off the keyboard that couldn’t be used next, helping you find keys faster (as not qwerty) and helping you spell weird place names. I did struggle to find heathrow t4 with it at first, but just like google, if your first search doesn’t work, try something else.
