Safety concerns over Freeview on Sat Nav

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

It is just a few days since the launch of the Mio Navman Spirit satellite navigation system which has a built in digital TV tuner, capable of picking up the free-to-air service provided by Freeview.

The Navman offers the user the standard sat nav maps and directions, but at the touch of button it displays the Freeview Electronic Programme Guide (EPG).

However, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is worried that the device, which comes in 7” and 4.7” inch screen sizes, could be a serious distraction to drivers, despite the fact that the system shouldn’t be used while the vehicle is moving.

It is believed that Freeview services can be viewed until the vehicle reaches 60 mph.
