Smarter, Simpler Navigation from Mio: Mio introduces three new devices to its Navman range

19 April 2010 For Immediate Release

Mio, a leading worldwide supplier of Portable Navigation Devices (PNDs), has announced three new models in its Navman series: Mio Navman 470, 475 and 575. The new line-up delivers the ideal solution for those looking for high quality and useful features in an easy to use device.

A Smarter Sat-nav

The new Navman devices come with in-built IQ Routes TM, an intelligent feature that anticipates congestion on roads at peak times, so they can be avoided. It uses real-life information collected from millions of drivers to calculate the best possible route, resulting in a faster and more efficient journey.

Drive the route you want to

The new Navman series puts you on the roads you want to be on with LearnMe™. This feature will learn the roads you like to drive on over time and adapt its route options to suit individual preferences. For example, whether driving on the motorway is your thing, or you prefer a quieter, more leisurely drive though the country lanes of Britain, your device will pick up on this and find the routes to best suit you and your driving style. Together, LearnMe™ and IQ Routes™ give the Navman 470, 475 and 575 a truly personal touch.

Real-time traffic information at your fingertips

Real-time traffic information proves highly beneficial for any modern day driver. The Navman 475 and 575 include live traffic information and updates, ensuring users are always informed of traffic alerts in real-time – and being stuck in traffic will never be a valid excuse for turning up late again.

First class navigation

The Navman range comes in two different screen sizes – the neat 4.3 inch Navman 470 and 475, and the bold 4.7 inch Navman 575 – so there is a model to suit any size or style of car. Boasting the latest in navigational technology the Navman Series come with 3D Junction Views for clear guidance at complex junctions, safety camera warnings and Text-to-Speech for spoken street names. Combined with Mio’s QuickSpellTM keyboard, which intuitively suggests words as the user types, searching for and reaching your destination has never been so easy.

Maps for rent

A first in sat-nav technology, these Navman devices allow customers to rent additional UK and international maps for a short period of time. This means no more having to dig deep into your pockets to buy extra maps for a one-off use, and it proves the ideal, most cost-effective solution for short road trips and holidays.

In addition, Mio Total Refresh Latest Map Guarantee allows new users to make sure that they have the very latest map available for their region upon purchase of a device – meaning the days of finding a route blocked by a brand new motorway, or encountering a dead end that wasn’t there before are over. If Mio releases a more recent map for their device within the 30 day guarantee they can then download it for free.

The new Navman range is available in stores in May. For more information please visit eu.mio.com.
