Mio Technology Introduces Stylish and Spunky GPS
~ Mio DigiWalkerTM C220, the newest member of the Mio Technology GPS family ~

Fremont, California – April 11, 2007 – Mio Technology Ltd., a leading worldwide supplier of personal GPS navigation devices, announced the availability of an ultra-sleek, entry-level GPS device to meet increasing consumer demand for affordable and portable navigation. Following the success of the Mio DigiWalkerTM C310x, the Mio DigiWalker C220 comes equipped with updated map data and is also competitively priced.

The Mio DigiWalker C220 is perfect for users who are new to GPS navigation or those looking for a second device for the family. At an MSRP of $249.95, the Mio DigiWalker C220 is a fantastic choice for a broad range of consumers, from college students leaving home for the first time to retirees heading to spring and summer locales.

"The explosive popularity of the Mio DigiWalker C310x during the holiday season and early this year demonstrates the demand for quality portable navigation devices at a reasonable price," said Kiyoshi Hamai, North American sales director, Mio Technology Ltd. "We are confident that the Mio DigiWalker C220 will follow in the C310x's footsteps; exceeding consumers' expectations without breaking the bank."

The Mio DigiWalker C220 comes with U.S. maps (Alaska and Hawaii included) preloaded on an SD card, allowing users to simply remove the device from the box and go. Turn-by-turn voice and text navigation keeps the driver's eyes on the road, whether receiving directions in English, French or Spanish. The Mio DigiWalker C220 also offers an anti-glare, 3.5-inch display so the sun will not interfere. And with more than 3.5 million points of interest, finding your way to a new café, watering hole, posh restaurant or sports arena is a snap.
