Mio's connected GPS, the Mio Moov 380 is being reported by Taiwan Times
that it is now available (in Taiwan) for purchase. Mio has been talking about since earlier this year.
The connected GPS gets its information over the cellular network allowing it to get better traffic information via typical traffic data feeds and peer to peer networking. through bigger bandwidth connections. More bandwidth = more data = better informed drivers (we hope).
According to the Taiwan Times, "The development of wireless networking has enabled Mio to integrate wireless communication and real time transmission technology into its GPS, enabled car electronics products allowing them to offer six kinds of location-oriented services: on the go safety, positioning, navigation, tracing & management, commercial and leisure entertainment services, generating new business opportunities for car electronics products.
Wang of MiTAC states, "By adopting networking technologies, Mio enables in-car devices to offer more services than traditional car GPS systems. From real time traffic message navigation to the latest entertainment information, it enables in-car GPS's to navigate smarter, and also enrich the lives of our consumers.""
