Mio and Interface Maker Nav n Go Part Ways

Mio and the maker of their software are parting ways. Not a big surprise given that back in January, Mio was saying that the Navman merger would bring software capabilities to the party.

"Mio Technology brings core competencies in hardware to the table, while Navman brings expertise in software and content, creating a new brand that is better able to create unique, innovative products and services." said Samuel Wang, president, Mio Technology Corporation.

Nav n Go has on their website an announcement that Nav n Go is stopping deliveries of software to Mio after what they say were "continuous breaches of contract."

Personally, I liked the Nav n Go software as a GPS interface, and thought it was a better product than most other GPS makers that were new to the scene, but it was a step down from the top performers in the category. It's up to Mio to launch their units based on an easier to use totally new software platform in time for the summer driving season.

I also like the Nav'n Go software and I use it on Mitac Mio P 560. The software works great and I've improved my skills in geotagging and tracking with it. In order to complete the map available in my country (Romania) I've used the TopMap Editor, which is a free online tool to update the map. I have seen some PDAs with IGo Amigo, and Amigo website, but I was not please about orange colors used there.
I keep in mind that once Mio and I-Go was a perfect match and I have to live with regret of their divorce. It was too good to be true (my oppinion).
