Mio C620 GPS Leak

Mio is set to offer a major overhaul to its GPS units that focuses on software, according to new information and a lone screenshot. The C620 (not yet shown) will run the company's in-house MioMap 2008 interface and will provide more data, and more dynamic data, about the route ahead. In full-screen mode, a large-scale 3D mode will show a detailed representation of the map with a more natural perspective and 3D style cues, including color-coded parks and major landmarks. A split-screen technique adds to the output with either the choice of displaying detailed information about upcoming checkpoints or controls for media tools, such as an MP3 player. Drivers can also plot out multiple steps in their route before the drive.

Few details about the C620 itself have been revealed, though the handheld will be large with a 4.3-inch touchscreen and will be available in a sub-variant known as the C620t. Bluetooth is anticipated in at least one model. Regardless of version, more details should be available by start of the IFA Expo in Berlin, which begins on the 31st and may include American release details. [via NaviGadget]
