Mio GPS Receiver with MP3 Player
Mio Technology - Model 269
Mio technology has launched an interesting new GPS that bridges the gap between stand alone GPS receiver and media players.
The new Mio 269 GPS receiver is a stand alone GPS with a 2.5 GB hard drive on board, a build in MP3 player (0.5GB available for media) that has base maps for North America already loaded.
The Mio 269 GPS Receiver is auto-routing capable with the ability to generate directions to a location on the fly, navigating to points of interest (restaurants, ATMs, etc.) addresses, or favorite locations that you program. Maps are displayed in landscape view on a 3.5â€ TFT touch screen LCD and in 2D or 3D. It comes with rechargeable Lithium Ion battery that allows up to 4.5 hours of operation, 3.5â€ color display, 32 MB flash ROM and 64 MB SDRAM, touch screen keyboard (stylus pen), built-in 1 in. loudspeaker, headphone jack, infrared remote control, and for the ultimate in mobility, mounting hardware for automobiles and bikes. Seems like a nice set-up for listening to some tunes while geocaching, or just out on the road. The Mio 269 is 5in x 3in x 1in thick, and weighs just 8 ounces. You get a travel case, AC and car adapter and USB cable for uploading MP3â€™s. It also has an SD slot, which supports cards up to 1GB. The MSRP for the standard Mio 269 is $799. It is available at Amazon.com.
