<p>Designed especially for drivers, the new Mio offers faster, more precise and improved navigation.</p>
<p>Mio Technology, maker of a leading brand for handheld GPS products, officially launched its Mio268 in the Australian market.</p>
<p>Designed especially for drivers, the Mio 268 includes the latest high-sensitivity GPS reception system, which enables precise positioning even when the signal is weak. The Mio268 features a query-by-coordinates function, most suited for the vast spaces of Australia. If a friend discovers an extraordinary but little-known scenic spot, the user need only query the destination by coordinates to obtain navigation assistance. The Mio268 provides drivers with the best price/performance solution for faster, more accurate, and better GPS navigation services.</p>
<p>The newest high-sensitivity embedded antenna for faster positioning
The Mio268 handheld GPS system offers a stylish screen, simple operation, and an easy learning curve. A simple press of a key is all that’s needed to turn the unit on. All functionality can be accessed by selected large on-screen icons or hardware hotkeys. With a smart metallic gray and black color scheme, the Mio268’s flowing contours conceal an embedded antenna. The Mio268 fits perfectly in your pocket and is easy to stow away when not in use. The Mio268 utilizes the latest high-sensitivity GPS reception system, and even when the signal is weak, it can provide an accurate positioning.</p>
<p>Made for those who love to travel and explore, with maps covering all of Australia
The Mio268’s built-in Mio Map includes maps of the entire Australia, and is designed for Australians who like to travel and explore. If a destination is entered just before departure, the Mio268 supports queries by road, scenic attractions, and keywords. In addition, it also supports input of a destination by its coordinates. For example, if a friend wants to tell you about an amazing fishing spot, but the nearest road is unnamed, route planning can be initiated simply by entering the location’s coordinates.</p>
<p>Tools for personal information management, and MP3 playback
The Mio268 is easily transferable from one car to another. For the convenience of users out on a trip, addresses and memos of friends can be retrieved, while schedules can also be managed. Having arrived at a destination and no longer needing the GPS features, the user can enjoy their favourite tunes by taking advantage of MP3 playback on the Mio268.</p>
<p>The Mio268 is available for purchase from Harvey Norman, JB HiFi and Domayne. The suggested retail price is AU$899 including GST.</p>
