Mio - 7Mil Units in 2008; Connected GPS in 2009
Mio recently opened up a new headquarters in Belgium, and had a few things to say about its business; where is it and where it is going. According to GPSNews, and Canalays, Mio has a 9.5% share of the global navigation market (GPS & PDA), which is a combination of the Mio and Navman brands. They recently moved to more of a Navman interface, away from the iGo interface that they had been using. I just reviewed the Mio Moov 300/310 that has that new interface, and for the most part they did a good job, but could use some more work in some areas.
Mio will be adding in the NavPix capability from the Navman line into the Moov line later this year, as they will be adding cameras to their GPS line.
