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 !!
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: 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: 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.
