You'll quickly learn to rely on your Mio C520 for everything from location finding and route planning to looking up essential services as well as leisure or entertainment sites when you're in unfamiliar places. Enjoy a widescreen view of the world. The new Mio C520 is based around its 4.3-inch widescreen. The new screen size makes it easier to use than ever.
- 4.3-inch widescreen:
The wide screen size makes this new device easier to use than ever. It provides a clear and comprehensive display of map and menu views.
- Split-screen Intelligence
The Mio C520 makes intelligent use of its widescreen. The screen enables you to see the full map view and a selection of route information aside from it. While still on navigation mode, you can view other necessary options. You can choose the information to display: Your next four maneuvers, local Points of Interest, speed camera locations, and route and timing data. This unique multi-tasking is one of the main advantages of Mio's new MioMap v3.3 interface.
Bluetooth Wireless Technology
Use the C520 for hands-free calling when combined with a Bluetooth wireless technology enabled mobile phone. The C520 allows you to keep your hands safely on the wheel whenever you're on the phone. It automatically switches from navigation to phone mode every time you receive a call.
MioMap v3: next generation navigation software
- Better display than ever:
MioMap v3 offers a smoother, clearer and more detailed display than ever before. However fast you scroll, pan, turn or zoom, the map retains the same high quality throughout. Together with the user-friendly interface and clear menus, MioMap v3 guides you to your destination quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
- Updated speed camera warnings:
MioMap v3 conveniently displays the locations of all known speed cameras, as well as the likely sites of mobile ones. You can have both visual and audio warnings alerting you when a speed cam is in your vicinity.
- Add speed camera locations yourself:
It's very easy to add new locations to your device when new cameras are placed. You can even synchronize your device with the MioMap database to download the latest locations, added by other users.
- Find POIs quickly and easily:
MioMap v3 makes it fast and easy to locate a POI. If you know what you're looking for, just type in the name to get the exact location. And if you want to find something in a specific area, whether it's on the way to a destination or once you've arrived there, you can search local POIs grouped into logical, simple to navigate lists like restaurants, service stations and hotels.
Newest Tele Atlas maps
If you're traveling within the region where you bought the C520, you have a full door-to-door coverage of that region (US). To travel outside the region, you can purchase the full maps of 22 Western European countries, as well as maps of Eastern Europe. Adding those maps is incredibly easy - just pop the SD card into the slot on your C520!
You can choose between 16 different languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish are all available - and you can even choose the voice you prefer for audio directions.

Get going quickly with SiRFstar III and new fast processor
The latest SiRFstar III GPS receiver picks up satellite signals faster and holds them better, and the 400Mhz processor helps you calculate your route more quickly - which means you can get on the road quicker. The highly sensitive SiRFstar III GPS chipset can receive signals from up to 20 satellites for highly accurate positioning, even in the centre of a city or the middle of the countryside.
Points Of Interest
Arranged in easy to use categories, an impressive list of POIs comes ready to access. The C520 is programmed with an extensive range of Points Of Interest (POI), arranged into easy to use categories such as restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, cash machines, parking, shops etc. In addition, you can save your favorite locations as POIs - just click on the map, add the name, and you're done! Many of the POIs now include phone numbers. So now you can find the location of a good restaurant or hotel and phone ahead to make a reservation. The C520 makes it easy to quickly look up POI's close to your current location or those situated along your chosen route.
Choose the way you want to travel
You can use the C520 outside the car as well as inside it. It's light and very compact - and can safely be transported wherever you go. On the road, you can choose between the fastest, the shortest and the economical routes - and then you can also specify if you're driving a car, a bus, a truck, etc. You can also make sure that the toll roads or ferries are included in - or excluded from, if you prefer - your itinerary.
MP3-player and Photo-Viewer
The C520 is a navigation device, but it also offers a lot more than that. The SD/MMC memory card slot expansion means you can play all your stored music and look at your favorite snaps - or show them to other people- all conveniently on your portable C520 with its 4.3-inch LCD.
Detachable Power Cradle
The cradle doesn't just hold the device, if you connect the power cable to it, it doubles as a battery charger while you drive. Combined with the dual windshield mount, the cradle forms a very solid device holder, preventing vibrations.
