Today Mio Technologies officially released an new entry level personal GPS device called the Mio DigiWalker C220.
The new GPS device from Mio looks to be an impressive deal with a 3.5 inch TFT touchscreen display, audible turn-by-turn directions and a preloaded US map with over 3 million points of interest such as hotels, restaurants, bars and sporting arenas. All of this with a price tag at around $250 makes the DigiWalker C220 a pretty decent bargain.
The US map comes stored on a 1GB SD card and makes the GPS ready to go out of the box. It also comes with software to warn you of locations with potential speed cameras and “mobile traps”, which is frequently updated and a free subscription to this service is available with the device for the first year.
Traveling on foot is not a problem, either. The Mio DigiWalker C220 lets you specify your mode of transportation whether it be by car, truck, bus or even on foot and the device will calculate routes appropriately.
A few other specs include 256MB flash memory, dimensions of 4.21″ x 3.15″ x 0.91″, 320×240 pixel resolution, WAAS enabled and is USB 1.1 compatible. You can read more at the Mio website.
