Mitac car/foot GPS units

Japan's Mitac is preparing two variants of the same basic GPS design, to be released on September 26th. Both the C523 and C525 Mio DigiWalkers have 4.3-inch screens, and come with 2GB of ROM, preloaded with map data. As normal, an SD slot allows expansion; atypical is a broader range of supported video formats, including 3GP and QuickTime, as well as ASF, AVI, MP4 and WMV. Supported audio types include MP3, WAV and WMA, though it cannot play DRM-locked tracks.

Where the two units differ is mainly in preloaded applications. The 523 is intended for finding auto routes, and boasts an audio guide, a "highway" mode and a telephone book, the last containing about 8,000,000 numbers. The C525 comes with guides intended for foot or motorcycle navigation, and suitably, is equipped with an external antenna for better reception. Both GPS units should sell for approximately 56,800 yen ($500). [via Impress Watch]
