Mio C520 Ships

Mio on Monday announced that it had started shipping the C520, its previously-announced mid-range GPS unit. The receiver first seen during CES in January brings a 4.3-inch wide touchscreen that helps view maps without affecting control, and a Bluetooth transmitter for hands-free cellphone calls. It also claims an advanced voice guidance system that Mio says produces more natural-sounding directions than other companies have offered in the past. A simplified media player is also part of the design.

Initially priced higher during its March European launch, the C520 will arrive in North America at a price of $400. The system will come prepackaged with an SD card holding maps and navigation information for Canada and the US.
