The Navman Mio M419 is an important device with many practical features. It has full screen displays that include Lifetime Map updates. Therefore, the user does not have to worry about new maps or changes in unfamiliar roads. This useful device will guide the user with ease to new streets and addresses. What you need to do is to connect the Navman Mio 419 to your PC and then install the MioMore desktop software in order to check when updates are available. Once the installation is complete, you will receive new maps for the lifetime of the device up to a maximum of four times in a year.
The device has a 4.3-inch extra-large wide screen that displays images with viewing area that is 32 percent more than a normal 4.3″ display. This gives the user the opportunity to view larger maps, see clearer directions and press larger buttons for simple control.

It makes the user aware of what lane he or she needs to be in. In addition, the Junction View provides the user with realistic dimensional views, which helps in the correct highway exit.
The Keyword Search allows the user to enter any word of their choice and the device will display results based upon the keyword entered in the order of their proximity to the user’s current location.
