Mio GPS at CeBIT 2007

Mio today became the third GPS device maker to release new GPS units at Hannover's CeBIT expo and has introduced four new models. The 4.3-inch C520t, C520, and C320 all use their widescreen displays for an intelligent multi-panel interface that shows relevant travel info without losing the main navigation screen. They and the 3.5-inch C220 also come with 1GB SD cards that not only cover points of interest but offer free speed camera warning updates for up to a year. These can even be shared with other Mio owners online, the company notes.

The C220 and C320 are virtually the same in all but size and will arrive first in Europe for 220 and 350 ($291 and $463) each. The C520 adds Bluetooth for hands-free calls at 400 ($529) while the C520t makes standard a cradle with support for traffic warning data at 450 ($595). No commitment was made to an American launch, though one is all but certain with the company's existing line available in the country today.
