Mio Digiwalker C520 GPS

Posted in GPS,Mio by Nino Marchetti on May 22nd, 2007

Mio Digiwalker C520 GPSMio Technologies, which introduced the DigiWalker C220 just last month, is back at it again with the new, upper-end DigiWalker C520.

The thing which grabs us right away about the DigiWalker C520, priced at around $400, is the 4.3-inch split-screen display. It can be used in either full screen map view or a split-screen which shows off stuff such as upcoming intersections or points of interest locations. The C520, like the C220, uses touch-screen technology to make using it while driving easier. Not that we recommend you fiddle with it while screaming down the highway at 80MPH though.

Another cool feature of the C520 is its enhanced Bluetooth options. It can pair with Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to let you do hands-free calling using its built-in speaker and microphone. It also works with Bluetooth capable car stereos so you can enjoy compatible audio files played from …

Mio DigiWalker C220 GPSToday 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 …

GPS Embedding Sniper Rifle

Posted in GPS,Spy Gear by Reuben Drake on March 9th, 2007

GPS Sniper RifleThe Danish company Empire North is currently working on a special kind of sniper rifle. When gamers hear the words ‘sniper rifle’ they immediately think of some first person shooter game or another. However, this is not the case with this particular rifle.

Empire North is working on a GPS-based sniper rifle dubbed ID Sniper that is built to embed a tiny GPS tracking device on a target up to 1.1km away. This rifle will also be able to take pictures of the ‘target’ with the scope. Straight from the movies, the target will not feel the GPS device hit him/her/it.

Empire North states that, “it feels like getting a small mosquito bite and that [the] pain is absolutely minimal.” This rifle, taken directly from Hollywood, is sure to have some useful purposes.
