Mio announces Moov line

mio-moov.jpgMio Technology has forged ahead with its new Moov product line consisting of four new personal navigation devices which boasts a marriage of dependable hardware as well as a fresh user interface. This will be the first set of Mio Technology products that incorporate internally developed software after making full use of the company’s recent acquisition of Navman. The four models in question are the Mio Moov 200, 210, 300 and 310,, where any of these four will be able to offer straightforward navigation minus the hassles and headaches, while providing bang for your buck.

Here’s an excerpt from the press release.

Mio Moov 300 and 310 both feature a 4.3-inch widescreen window to the world of navigation, which allows for more on-screen information. The devices also incorporate text-to-speech functionality to call out actual street names when making turns, to help drivers keep their eyes on the road. These features, paired with a redesigned user interface and more than 3.5 million points of interest — including restaurants, hotels and gas stations — help users find new hot spots in their neighborhoods and beyond, turning everyday driving into a daily adventure.

Mio Moov 310 also comes with a one-year paid Traffic Messaging Channel (TMC) subscription. Powered by ClearChannel’s network of affiliates, TMC provides real-time updates on accidents, detours and construction that could delay or prevent drivers from reaching their destination. TMC updates are automatically displayed by the Moov 310, along with suggestions for routes around the obstruction.

Mio Moov 200 and 210 sport a 3.5-inch, square-shaped display with a bright, anti-glare screen for easy viewing in any environment. The devices take the hassle out of driving with text-to-speech voice guidance to let drivers focus on the road, not on the GPS screen. Mio also incorporated more than 3.5 million points of interest into Moov 200 and 210 to ensure that everything from the gas station on the corner to the local Italian restaurant is within reach. Mio also tackles one of the biggest challenges facing drivers today — traffic. Mio Moov 210 includes 12 months of free TMC real-time traffic updates, making it easier for users to route around trouble areas. All of these features for less than $200; being square never sounded so good.
