Mio Moov GPS- new line of personal navigation devices
      #29857 - 03/24/08 02:16 PM

Today, Mio Technology announced the "Mio Moov" product family - four new personal navigation devices that are the first to use Mio's own internally-developed user interface and navigation software. As customers in the GPS market shift from "early-adopter/tech-enthusiasts" to "general consumer," the Mio Moov 200, 210, 300 and 310 emphasize straightforward navigation and excellent value, making quality GPS navigation attainable and intuitive for all consumers.

Mio Moov 300 and 310 both feature:
. 4.3-inch widescreen,
. text-to-speech functionality
. more than 3.5 million points of interest.

Mio Moov 200 and 210 both feature:
. 3.5-inch, square-shaped display with a bright, anti-glare screen
. text-to-speech functionality
. more than 3.5 million points of interest.

The Mio Moov 310 and Mio Moov 210 both come with a one-year paid Traffic Messaging Channel (TMC) subscription, powered by ClearChannel's network of affiliates. The entire Moov line features new SiRFInstantFixII GPS receivers, which deliver faster GPS signal locks so users can begin navigating as soon as they are ready to drive.

Mio Moov 200, 210, 300 and 310 are available April 1 at participating retailers for a MSRP of $179.95, $199.95, $229.95 and $249.95 respectively.





Mio Moov 300 and 310 both feature a 4.3-inch widescreen window to the world of navigation, which allows for more on-screen information. The devices also incorporate text-to-speech functionality to call out actual street names when making turns, to help drivers keep their eyes on the road. These features, paired with a redesigned user interface and more than 3.5 million points of interest ? including restaurants, hotels and gas stations ? help users find new hot spots in their neighborhoods and beyond, turning everyday driving into a daily adventure.

Mio Moov 310 also comes with a one-year paid Traffic Messaging Channel (TMC) subscription. Powered by ClearChannel?s network of affiliates, TMC provides real-time updates on accidents, detours and construction that could delay or prevent drivers from reaching their destination. TMC updates are automatically displayed by the Moov 310, along with suggestions for routes around the obstruction.

Mio Moov 200 and 210 sport a 3.5-inch, square-shaped display with a bright, anti-glare screen for easy viewing in any environment. The devices take the hassle out of driving with text-to-speech voice guidance to let drivers focus on the road, not on the GPS screen. Mio also incorporated more than 3.5 million points of interest into Moov 200 and 210 to ensure that everything from the gas station on the corner to the local Italian restaurant is within reach. Mio also tackles one of the biggest challenges facing drivers today ? traffic. Mio Moov 210 includes 12 months of free TMC real-time traffic updates, making it easier for users to route around trouble areas. All of these features for less than $200; being square never sounded so good.

Mio Moov product line features new SiRFInstantFixII GPS receivers, which deliver faster GPS signal locks so users can begin navigating as soon as they are ready to drive. SiRFInstantFixII can find and lock a GPS signal in as few as five seconds during typical device start-ups, almost half a minute faster than other GPS devices. For users in cities where tall buildings can impede GPS signals ? creating ?urban canyons? ? a fast signal requisition can be the difference between missing a turn and arriving on-time.


Price and Availability
The MSRP for Mio Moov 200, 210, 300 and 310 are $179.95, $199.95, $229.95 and $249.95 respectively. Mio Moov GPS navigators will be available at RadioShack, Circuit City and other participating retailers on April 1.
