My garmin sat nav gave up the ghost recently so i was looking forward to the arrival of this new device. The display is great – nice big graphics, clean, easy to read design. It comes with the usual mounting arm and kit to fix it to the window – standard, no issues there. The device found the satellites easily and the process to enter your destination is straightforward. I’ve had no problems at all with finding different destinations. From the product description it seems like this is the most basic model in this range. Personally i wouldn’t need any more features or functionality than this offers. And that comes from someone with no sense of direction or map-reading ability who completely relies on a sat nav to get me anywhere outside of my normal route to and from work.

Not just helpful when making an attempt to obtain wherever you want to go. I have to say this is a little bit hit and skip, predominantly due to the fact it likes to do its possess detail these types of as predictive text when on the lookout for addresses. Not particularly practical when striving to discover in which you want to go in a hurry. It doesn’t appear to be as up to day as other sat navs. But getting said that it just isn’t as pricey as other kinds. It does perform but it is not sensational.

Had previous mio,s and this is just as good good directions and acquires gps fast. Here are the specifications for the Mio Technology MIO Spirit 8670 LM FEU Car Navigation System –:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  •  Lifetime Map Updates
  • 3 D Junction view
  • Parking assistance
  • Spoken street names
  • 6.2″ Touch Screen

Straightforward to use and reliable. . I haven’t felt the need to buy a sat navigation system before as i have a good sense of direction and can read a map with zero difficulty. However when this came up on amazon vine i thought i’d give it a go. I’m glad i did because recently i’ve been getting sent to far flung remote areas on business and this little beauty has made life so much easier for me – no more pulling into laybyes to check road maps. It is not too clunky looking on the dashboard and is easy to connect and disconnect. Downloading the software was straightforward even for a technophobe like me. Setting the functionality to suit the dimensions of your vehicle is also straightforward and it is simplicity itself to enter your intended destination postcode. So far i’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and it hasn’t let me down yet. I’ve arrived at all my destinations without a problem and have not ended up in any dead-ends or remote farm tracks (as happened more than once when using the gps on my phone). I’m sure there will be technologically more sophisticated and sleeker looking systems out there but this gets you from a to b and is reliable and competitively priced.

Not as fantastic as former models. This will be the last of various mio satnavs that i have purchased. It was faulty at the commencing but i was in a position to type that with resetting with support from the supplier. It is the most high priced 1 i have bought but absolutely the worst. Practical options from prior types have been omitted and stupid kinds have been introduced. Most irritating is that it switches on when you enter the car and then quickly switches off when the engine is commenced, leaving you obtaining to press buttons on the display just at the minute you desire to pull away. To pinpoint a site is now a three stage procedure instead of an external button. The worst issue is that the mapping has not caught up with pedestrianised streets that have been about for ages, and it is really sluggish in coming up with a detour. In actuality i consider it is far too gradual typically which is a nuisance on significant multiroute roundabouts. I curse this model every single time i go to a big town and have absolutely lost confidence in it.

Reviews from purchasers :
