Mio Technology Navman Mio Spirit 575 Satellite Navigation System – Regional UK : Best Navman I have owned

Sat Navs
1

I obtained this satnav as a substitute for an aging navman n60i which was a relatives favorite. Navman mio spirit 575 is, of course, the same pedigree and you will also notice advancements around the yrs, this kind of as the voice prompt now referring to roads/streets by their names (as opposed to only expressing letters and numbers as a123). This can be really practical especially in dense city spots wherever you see road or road names than alphanumeric codes. Of study course, not all avenue/highway names can be that easily recorded into audio and for this speech synthesis is unavoidable (as for this satnav). The synthesized voice (specifically with lengthy or multiple-phrase street/street names) at initial seems a bit odd (owing to unnatural synthetic speech resulting in incorrect syllables, imperfect intonation, and many others. ) but with time it can be accustomed to. I imagine the satnav has an possibility to disable this included attribute (which signifies no avenue/road names in navigation as in outdated models) but failed to even bother to disable this. I just couldn’t get applied to garmin and i had to return it.

Great price for a basic satnav. The unit has worked fine so far with just one little hitch. The map on the unit is years out of date. Theoretically if you log on to the web site within 30 days of purchase you get a free update. In practice you log on then the web site doesn’t recognise your password so you have to ask for a new one before you progress. When that arrives and you try top get you free upgrade it goes upto the point where it asks for the model of your satnav but does not give you any options to click on. Of course you then attempt to contact their customer support. Their e-mail appears to be directly linked to second class snail mail because i have yet to get a response. Here are the specifications for the Mio Technology Navman Mio Spirit 575 Satellite Navigation System – Regional UK:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best Navman I have owned
  • Highly recommended
  • Navman Mio Spirit 575

Actually happy with solution simple to use, excellent sized display screen, happy its not american voice, often a little bewildering which lane to go in on roundabouts but which is probably just me.

. #huge screen#very simple menu display screen. #quite straightforward to help you save your locations and edit them with the title of your option eg: soho london. #display quickly zooms in on junctions and roundabouts making it quite clear the place to go. #cradle attachment to screen is less bulky and pretty easy to use. #you can contact the screen for the duration of the journey to alter settings like volume.

Purchased as my first ever sat nav and im really pleased with it. – great sized screen- very easy to use- automaticaly goes into ” day” or ” night” mode so no fiddling round with it half way through a long journey if the sun begins to set- easy to mount and stays putbad point – please read- this sat nav comes with an “in car” charger only. On opening up the box for the first time and reading the manual it states that you must charge the sat nav for minimum of 8 hours befor 1st use. . Kinda impossible with only an in car charger . Luckily i had already had the brains to order a mains charger ( about £5) when i ordered the sat nav – but if i hadnt, i would then have had to order the mains charger and wait days for it to arrive befor using the sat nav. – even fully charged from the mains the battery only lasts about 2 hours before you need to plug in “in car”- covers are quite expensive as you need the 5″ ones. Generaly im really pleased with it. But im sure that sat navs at £20-£30 cheeper probably offer the same quality.

Very pleased with this product. Light,easy to programme, easy to follow. Big screen makes inputting info. ” could be improved with provision of audible “recalculating” warning when driver misses a waypoint. Otherwise, a pleasure to use, and, it doesn’t fall off the windscreen, unlike some of its rivalsexcellent value for money.

I got this satnav as a replacement for an aging navman n60i which was a family favourite. Navman mio spirit 575 is, of course, the same pedigree and you will also note improvements over the years, such as the voice prompt now referring to roads/streets by their names (as opposed to simply saying letters and numbers as a123). This can be quite helpful particularly in dense city areas where you see road or street names than alphanumeric codes. Of course, not all street/road names can be that easily recorded into audio and for this speech synthesis is unavoidable (as for this satnav). The synthesized voice (particularly with long or multiple-word road/street names) at first sounds a bit odd (due to unnatural synthetic speech resulting in wrong syllables, imperfect intonation, etc. ) but with time it can be accustomed to. I think the satnav has an option to disable this added feature (which means no street/road names in navigation as in old models) but didn’t even bother to disable this. I just couldn’t get used to garmin and i had to return it.

Having previously owned a navman icn 510 and was very happy with it, i decided to upgrade to one that allows full postcode entry. This model not only does that but the maps are more up to date and the voices are english not american so it knows that we call roundabouts ’roundabouts’ not ‘traffic circles’ over here, amongst other bad american english. I am very pleased with this unit as the touch screen and menus are much easier to use than the old system (although it was considered good in its day). Would recommend this to anyone after a easy to use satnav.
