In honour of the August bank holiday (and an extra day off work), we’ve decided to do something special to celebrate. Due to the unbelievable success of our free shipping weekend last week, we thought “what better way to celebrate the last official holiday before Christmas than by running an extra long, super saving weekend?” Yaaaay!

Mio Navman satnav devices have always been excellent value for money. Whilst holding strong in the top three leading personal navigation manufacturers they have consistently delivered high end devices at the lower end of the pay scale. Now, with a full range of Mio Navman devices available in manufacturer refurbished condition, there has never been a better time to purchase one of these award winning wonders.
The term ‘Refurbished’ used to hold a certain stigma to it, images of poor quality devices looking like they’d been kicked around the garden by the family dog sprung to mind and quite understandably it was sometimes confused with manufacturer refurbished but the simple truth is that they couldn’t be any more different. So what is manufacturer refurbished and what benefits will it give you?
Manfucturer refurbished devices are units that have been returned to Mio Navman for a number of reasons. Stores returning excess stock they haven’t sold, customers returning devices that they’ve changed their minds about or devices returned with minor hardware or software faults whatever the reason for return the devices are all subjected to the same rigorous testing and reformatting as new devices. Each Mio Navman device is lovingly restored to ‘as new’ standard and put through it’s paces before being given the seal of approval as a manufacturer refurb device. For you, this means that you’re getting award winning Mio Navman quality for a fraction of the price.
We currently have five different manufacturer refurbished Mio Navman models for you to choose from, each coming with a full 12 month manufacturer warranty and current maps of the UK and Ireland. Whether you’re looking for a basic device like the F45 to simply get you from A to B or whether you need something more feature packed like the S555 with hands-free calling and traffic information there is something for you. Most of them also come with a free protective carry case to save your satnav from the inevitable bumps and scrapes, keeping it in tip top condition.
With prices as low as £39.99 why don’t you grab yourself a bargain today because these little beauties wont be around for long.

Personal customisation is a big thing in technology right now. Android platform, iPhone apps, anything you don’t like you can change. That’s never happened on a satnav before. Until now. TomTom has capitalised on the success of the TomTom Start and now brings to you the Start² [...]

As Google strives to secure the future of its advertising network, it came as no surprise last October that they are now bundling free turn-by-turn navigation software on all Android-based smartphones. This increasing threat from Google’s entry into the mobile hardware market has prompted veteran mobile phone manufacturer Nokia to respond with a free GPS solution, dwarfing Google’s offering.
As of today, all compatible Nokia phones are eligible for the free Ovi Maps download, which includes maps of the country where the unit was purchased (74 countries and 46 languages available). The software boasts turn-by-turn voice guidance, lane assistance, traffic information, safety camera alerts and pedestrian modes.
Unlike Google’s Android GPS solution, Nokia’s Ovi Maps are installed directly onto the phone. This means there is no direct need for a data connection, which in turn increases battery life, and makes the software an attractive option for those on capped data transfer plans. However that’s not to say a data connection isn’t desirable, with Nokia including Lonely Planet and Michelin travel guides at no extra cost.
As of March 2010, Nokia will ship all new GPS-enabled smartphones with Ovi Maps software pre-installed. In the meantime, if you want to get your hands on this software, maps are available now from the Nokia website for the following handsets: N97 Mini, 5800 XpressMusic, 5800 Navigation Edition, E52, E55, E72, 5230, 6710 Navigator, 6730 Classic and X6.
