Lots of extras ...........
When you're not navigating, you can use it to listen to your favourite music or to have a look through your latest photos.

On top of that, the currency converter will help make sure you aren't paying over the odds when you go abroad.http://www.mio-tech.be/en/gps-navigation-products-c710-overview.htmhttp://www.mio-tech.be/en/gps-navigation-products-c710-overview.htm
