Excerpt: Mobile phones have been cutting into the MP3 player market for some time now, and with more and more handhelds offering built-in GPS and car kits to provide navigational aides for drivers and ramblers, we’d expect the dedicated in-car satnav market to go the same way. The latest to attempt to skirt this potential decline is Mio, whose Spirit V575 TV brings Freeview television channels, as well as media playback, to core navigation functionality.
Pros: Clear voice and visual instructions on the road, large controls make it easy to make adjustments
Cons: Feels overly large and a bit cheap in the hand, display can be unresponsive, mediocre media capabilities, issues with TV tuner and built-in speaker
Summary: Simple and straightforward are the watchwords for the Mio Navman 575. Sat-nav manufacturers have all reacted in their own way to the smartphone-powered cloud of doom that hangs over dedicated GPS systems, and Mio's plan is to stick to solid performance and good value. You don't need to be Duncan Bannatyne to know that it's a business plan that works.
Conclusion: Il Mio Spirit 575 è un navigatore satellitare dal design moderno e compatto dotato di innumerevoli funzioni che aiutano al massimo il conducente. Da evidenziare l’IQ Routes, l’assistente di corsia, il TMC integrato, il database autovelox, gli svincoli in 3D, la pianificazione dei percorsi personalizzata, il Text-to-Speech e le mappe di tutta l’Europa.
