Mio C220 GPS Unit

Mio this morning officially released the C220, one of the least expensive GPS mapping device in the company's history and built specifically for first-time users and other basic users. The simple design shares many of the features as costlier models with a 3.5-inch touchscreen, voice guidance in any one of three languages (English, French, or Spanish), and a relatively large 3.5 million points of interest; it only avoids relative luxuries such as Bluetooth or media playback, according to Mio's designs. The C220 is meant to be genuinely portable and lasts for roughly 4.5 hours on battery.

The resulting device is available today at a reasonable price, the company says: it ships today for $250, preloaded with a 1GB SD card holding driving maps for the continental US.
