Mio Moov S401 S501 for US

Mio today upgraded its Moov GPS units with a pair of large-screen but low-cost models. Falling in line with a late rumor, the S401 and S501 both have Mio's more recent Spirit user interface, which brings both clearer navigation and unique tricks such as "docking" point of interest searches for quicker access, mixed-term keyword searches and the ability to memorize certain routes and places for later. Owners can also convert locations from Google Maps on a computer to a GPS-friendly format.

The two units differ through both screen size and map data. The S401 as the core model has a 4.3-inch touch display and 4 million points of interest spread across all 50 American states as well as Puerto Rico. Moving to the S501 expands the screen to 4.7 inches and supplies Canadian maps as well as a total 12 million points of interest. Both ship in June and will have only a small price gap between each other, as the S401 will cost $180 while the S501 should reach $200.
