This is good for a majority of time, but what if you want to drive further afield?
You still want the convenience of your trusty PND, so you’ll need to add a new map of the location you’re travelling to.
We want you to have the latest maps available on your Mio.
Simply register your new Mio with Mio Advantage within 30 days of first use or purchase, and we’ll check if there’s a newer map available for your Mio. The free update includes the same map coverage and features as was originally on your device, and updated safety cameras as well.
Manufacturers offer updates for these maps on their individual company websites.
