    More info

    Mio’s “Lifetime Map updates” entitles you to receive between two and four map data updates annually via Mio More Desktop.  Mio does not warrant updates, release dates or, annual releases frequency. 

    Mio’s “Lifetime Map updates” option is only applicable for this specific Mio device, until:

    The device reaches the end of its "active life". The date on which the product is no longer serviceable or supported by Mio


    Mio no longer receives device compatible map data from its third-party supplier, 

    whichever is shorter. 

    Updates are not transferable to other Mio devices or alternative products.

    Device “active life” represents the period throughout which the product has sufficient memory capacity and other required technical capabilities to utilise current map data and is capable of operating as intended without major repairs. Third-party content providers may change. 

    If your Mio product does not have sufficient memory remaining to load an update to the map data, we recommend the following troubleshooting actions: 

    (1) select reduced map data coverage for your updates, or 

    (2) purchase a separate microSD™/SD™ card (if applicable to your Mio product) and load all or a portion of the map data coverage for your updates to the microSD™/SD™ card and insert the card into the card slot contained in your Mio product. 

    If neither of the recommended options in (1) or (2) addresses your product’s lack of sufficient remaining memory, your Mio device may be no longer within “active life” interval and your will receive only updates for the geographic map data originally included with your Mio product when originally purchased. Full terms and conditions available by contacting Customer Support.
