The new Spirit 8500 LM comes with Lifetime Map Updates, so you never have to worry about new maps or road changes anymore.

The Spirit 8500 LM is optimally designed for comfort and ease of use. The bright, extra-large 6 inch screen ensures you’ll never miss a turn or an instruction. IQ Routes™ uses real-life information collected from millions of drivers to optimise the route that is calculated: giving you the optimal way, any time of day. The enhanced LearnMe Pro™ monitors and learns your driving style, providing you with personalised routes to suit your preferences. You will see the improvement in your routes and estimated time of arrival on the screen. Find parking places more easily with the Parking Assistance feature which automatically shows a list of parking spaces when you are within 1km of your destination, so you don’t have to search for a nearby car park.

Tunnel Guidance

A simulation based on speed helps you know where you are in a tunnel.

A new approach to lanes and junctions

With the Mio’s Lane Guidance, you’re always in the correct lane to make a turn, so useful with today’s busier roads. The Spirit software also features realistic 3D Junction Views that match major road signs, giving you more time to understand what’s ahead as you approach an exit or intersection.

Spoken Street Names

Listen to where to turn and keep your eyes on the road.

Pedestrian mode - works both in the car and on foot

The Mio Spirit features pedestrian mode. That means you're no longer restricted as to where and when you can use GPS. In short, wherever you want to take it, you can. On the road, Mio will guide you to your destination for a perfect, seamless journey every time, with preloaded maps of 33 Western and Eastern European countries. On foot, Mio is equally in its element if you want to go walking.

Trip Planner

Mio comes with a powerful Trip planner that enables you to plan your trips from the comfort of your home computer via MioMore™ Desktop or right on the device, where you can set multiple waypoints, prioritise them for optimized routes and preview the route with simulation mode.

Parking Assistance

The new Parking Assistance feature automatically shows a list of parking spaces when you are within 1km of your destination: so you don’t have to search for a nearby car park.

Rental Maps

Mio now offers you the choice of renting maps for just a small cost. You may choose between 3, 7 and 30 days, making them ideal for short trips and holidays.
