  • Mio GPS Products All Awarded Symbol Of Excellence
For Immediately Release (February 17, 2005, Taipei, Taiwan)
Mio products have been awarded the Symbol of Excellence every year in which they have been entered in the competition. This year proved no exception, as the Mio GPS family—comprising the Mio 268, Mio 136, and Mio 168RS—once again met the Symbol of Excellence standards for R&D innovation, product design, quality system, market positioning, and brand awareness. The Symbol of Excellence awards are testimony to the success of Mio GPS products' built-in GPS module and consumer-oriented design in pioneering new territory in the wireless communications market.

A Mio Technology spokesperson noted, "The affirmation represented by the Symbol of Excellence is very significant for Mio products. That's because every potential product must undergo a very stringent design evaluation and market survey process, making each one that's developed distinctive and possessing a specific market positioning. For that reason, every Mio product is very special to the company, as it represents a promise made to the market and to our customers. And as Mio products continue to gain acceptance in international markets, they are also publicizing the innovation-based value that Taiwan-made products can offer."
