Mio Digiwalker C520 Arrives for Review

The Mio C520 was officially announced near the end of May after being posted to a retailer site ahead of the release. The Mio C520 was previewed at CES 2007, and launched in Taiwan ahead of the US.

The Mio C520 is a new widescreen design for Mio that has some clean lines and a new user interface that allows you to use the widescreen real estate to split the information while navigating to show the map on one side and upcoming turn information on the other. The Mio C520 is a text to speech model that speaks street names. The C520 also has Bluetooth capabilities for a handsfree conversation using your Bluetooth enabled phone.


After reading the PC Mag review on the Mio C520 I am pretty excited to take a look at the unit and try it out over the coming weeks. The Mio Map software, while familiar to users of other Mio units, is updated for the widescreen unit. I just reviewed the Mio C220, an entry model unit that offered a few updates in the Mio Map software, and we’ll see what features got packed into the C520.

What’s in the Box – Mio C520

The Mio C520 includes:
  • Mio C520 widescreen GPS unit
  • 12V power cord
  • Suction Cup windshield mount
  • Adhesive Disk for dash mounting.
  • Quickstart guide and application CD

    In my mind, when I opened the Mio C520, it felt like I was opening a present, reminiscent of when I opened up my iPod.
