Mio Moov S401 and S501

Mio is preparing to launch another set of navigation devices in the North American market, the S401 and S501, as indicated by leaked images posted on Engadget. The S401 offers a 4.1-inch touchscreen and four million loaded POIs. The S501 variant features a larger 4.7-inch display paired with 12 million POIs. Both navigation devices run on the company's Spirit interface, with a side-screen feature that allows users to slide out of view by dragging off-screen to view other POIs or maps. A capture button records favorite routes, locations or voice memos.

The S401 and S501 carry the same interface as several other S-series models introduced at CES earlier this year. The updated software is claimed to provide faster access, less cluttered map views and text-to-speech functionality.

Both devices will be available at Radio Shack sometime in the middle of May, with the S401 priced at $130 and the S501 carrying a $170 price tag.
