carol , chelmsford Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
the screen is a great size and when its dusk it changes the images so that it looks like night driving. Once i played about with it a bit it was easy to use. If you have a LG phone charger you can charge it up at home. I also like the fact that i can take it when trying to find something in london by foot!! If i went wrong it re-routed me immediately, Brilliant!!
Bad points:
What i didn't like is that if you want to know what the machine can really do then you have to download the instructions, which i spent an hour trying to do with no result. I can't activate the traffic option because i have no instructions, hence, i have got stuck in traffic alot!! I purchased it for the traffic.

Good points:

Bad points:
theres a problem with loading maps that navman don't seam to be able to solve, while travling in london i find it asks you to make illigal turns (ie down one way streets the wrong way, right turns where it is not allowed) plus a few more that would take to long to explain

Manufacturer's Description

Navman Spirit 500 HF Traffic (European Mapping) The Navman Spirit range takes a fresh, exciting approach to navigation, with a sharp bright 4.7-inch widescreen. Ergonomically designed with soft-curve edges and a stylish, compact exterior, the Navman Spirit range represents some of the slimmest, most lightweight sat nav devices ever seen.

Spirit software and new slidetouch screen The ‘Spirit’ part of the name refers to the new software that powers the range. Redesigned from the ground up, Spirit uses a simple and colourful menu system that takes users to all of the features within a couple of ‘taps’.

The new slidetouch screen brings up windows that glide on and off to help find what you are looking for quickly and easily, without needing to go back to the main menu unless you want to. TruMap Views, Junction Views and lane guidance make navigation easy Basic sat nav functions, such as finding your destination easily, avoiding traffic, being aware of road speeds and safety cameras and helping the driver negotiate difficult junctions are all catered for, with some important additions.

To improve map clarity, Mio has added new TruMap Views that strip away clutter for a cleaner, much easier to read map display. New Junction Views have also been added, giving drivers an accurate representation of motorway signs in 3D as they approach an exit.

Intelligent text-to-speech provides spoken next turn road names and directions, enabling drivers to keep their eyes on the road, and spoken navigation is now louder and clearer.
