Not exactly useful when trying to find where you want to go. I have to say this is a bit hit and miss, mainly because it likes to do its own thing such as predictive text when looking for addresses. Not exactly useful when trying to find where you want to go in a hurry. It doesn’t seem as up to date as other sat navs. But having said that it isn’t as expensive as other ones. It does work but it is not sensational.

Good value if you need truck mode. If this mio spirit 7670 lm truck had just been for cars, i would have given it no more than 3 stars. Compared to my wife’s garmin, which was not that much more expensive, it is a bit clunky, and the interface seems a little slow. Updates are only available on a pc, so no mac connection. On the road, the sound was a bit muffled, but audible, there is 2 choices of voice, one that will read out the street names, the other doesn’t. When on-line you can download a male voice. On the plus side, it was easy to set up and use. The maps seem to be up to date, and the speed limit graphic is always useful as is the speed limit alert. It was easy to install in the car, and has a useful hour-ish of battery life is you stick it into pedestrian mode. The saving grace for the 7670 truck is truck mode and the reason for the 4 stars.

Superb satnav greater than any other goods out there.

This mio spirit is good – and no much more. Owning been a lengthy-time person of tom-tom and garmin sat-nav products, i was interested to see what the opposition was featuring, primarily at a acceptable price tag stage perfectly, you get what you pay out for. This mio spirit is fine – and no additional. It will work, and has the kind of useful capabilities that you would count on from any sat-nav, including parking assistance, lane help and an quick to use interface. Unfortunately the system is very gradual, particularly when attempting to enter addresses or research – it is very annoyance to use simply because you have to wait for each and every ‘press’ to be registered, which can final result in it pretty much taking about a minute to input a postcode. 1st-environment issues in truth, but not perfect. The battery daily life is very terrible, which is moot if you strategy on plugging the spirit 7500 in whilst you are working with it, but it doesn’t keep a demand effectively, which indicates if you are arranging on utilizing this device exterior of your car, you can fail to remember about it. It also routinely struggled to choose up a gps sign, even with obtaining a crystal clear perspective as a result of a windscreen to the sky – not a difficulty distinctive to this producer, but surely more frequently than its competition. Would i recommend this sat-nav?.Only if you just can’t extend to a extra high priced product from a additional trusted and properly-regarded competitor.

Mio Spirit 5450 LM WEU Car Navigation – Space Grey : Note====note: this is a review for the spirit 7500. I mention that [sept 2016] because at the time of review it’s listed with lots of models ranging from the low end to top end of sat nav. And not all of them will be great/awful. 7500====the 7500 is a simple sat nav that, so far, has been accurate and very easy to use. My last sat nav was a tomtom and this is better than that. That used to take about 6 minutes to find where you were. This, it’s almost instant-even in built up cities. Lm==the paperwork says it comes with lifetime maps. Simple======it’s somple to update the maps sing the app that comes with it: miomorewell made==========classic design and it feels solidly made.

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.

Got me where i wanted to go on several occasions. . Easy to use, not worth the effort of breaking windows to nick at this price.

Use the disc to get instructions not the best as getting in the car with instruction manual better. Once got the hang of it, it did what i wanted, use the disc to get instructions not the best as getting in the car with instruction manual better than trying to remember all the info.

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.
