Summary: Upside The map diplay is clear with unneccessary clutter omitted, the route is highlighted in colour making it easy to follow. The menu system is logical and easy to follow. Downside Map updates are a one-off and not 4 over the 12 months. Speed Cameras are disabled when the subscription expires The claim of IQ Routes somewhat misleading as the data is updated only when the maps are updated i.e. when you pay !!

Summary: Shame i can't give this item and the company 0 stars to be absolutely honest. The Sat Nav is cheap, looks cheap, feels cheep. You really do get what you pay for here. I dont trust the directions it provides for a minute. On one occassion all we had to do was travel from North London to North East London. The SAT NAV managed to take us on a guided tour of central London, Kensington, Buckingham palace and eventually we ended up in Chiswick!!! Don't ask....
Navman Mio Spirit 470 Satellite Navigation System - Western EU
15 May 2011
Summary: Good basic Navman. Does what it says on the box. Has information on Cameras and displays speed limits and beeps once you exceed a limit. I found a little problem with omiting a certain road which I am not sure whether other SatNav's provide the flexibility or not. Like if I am travelling to London from South and for obvious reason like to omit M25, the device does not handle this.
Summary: Ive been using this for a few months now and wish id never bought it, it takes forever to lock onto the satelites and when it does it tries to send you down roads that are not there, for example one time in london it kept saying turn right and there was no side road to the right just a long building that looked like it had been there since the 1800s.
Summary: This Sat Nav works great and is much more accurate than my old 4 yr old one (different make). It doesn't 'nag' at you too much-it just gets on with the job. However if you creep over the area speed limit a prompt reminder tone is emitted. Has all the features expected of a mid-range model and there are plenty of tweaks that can be enabled or disabled to suit most, if not all conditions.
Summary: After reading the reviews about the navman 470 i was confident i brought the right product, as i courier drive i use the sat nav everyday and i believe that the product it over rated and priced. - points # froze on many occasions # touch screen slow to respond # routes suggested were wrong. # after purchase support slow and lackfull + points # well set out menus # easy search options i have since returned this product. hope this helps.
Summary: Once you set the sat nav to English it worked straight away. Very easy to use and has the latest maps. How to use it also good. Haven't tried it for Europe as yet. Touch screen great. Great price from Amazon.
Summary: Great product. Looks really good in the car unlike other tired looking models. Has not just got British maps, but 23 European countries, so is brilliant for going on European trips. I can't recommend this more highly.
