Recovery position

If you rummage about in the menus system, you will come across several handy features. Roadside Assistant lets you select your rescue provider from a list – only the AA and RAC are included for the UK – and then dial them direct while the screen shows both your exact location coordinates and a description of your general position.

If you have a phone that supports Bluetooth tethering you can access weather information and Google Local Search data from the MioMore menu, but in an age when the world and their dog has a smartphone it’s debatable how necessary this feature is. The same is true of the bundled CitySeekr travel guides.
