Fremont, California - March 27, 2006- Mio Technology Ltd., a leading worldwide supplier of personal GPS navigation devices, announced the availability of its new stylish and portable GPS device to meet growing consumer demand for more personalized navigation that maps to their lifestyle. The Mio DigiWalker C310 comes with a built-in MP3 player allowing consumers to customize their personal GPS device with their favorite tunes while also receiving over 5 million points of interest (POIs) through a straightforward, easy-to-use GPS navigation device. "Mio is committed to adding new features that give consumers the latest advancements in travel technology, making the experience more than just about getting from point A to point B," said Kiyoshi Hamai, North American sales director, Mio Technology Ltd . "Consumer demand for customized mobile device is continuing to grow, and the addition to the Mio DigiWalker product line --offering MP3 players, multiple languages and extensive POIs-- is further proof that Mio provides travelers with the ultimate personalized experience."


The Mio DigiWalker C310 has a bold white chassis and comes preloaded with U.S. maps (Alaska & Hawaii Included) and 2 GB of memory. Turn-by-turn voice and text navigation with various language options including English, French and Spanish along with an easy to use touch screen enables users to effortlessly access maps and music files. The Mio DigiWalker C310 synchronizes with the user's Microsoft Outlook's "My Contacts" list, automatically locating directions to conveniently track the most appropriate route. The device includes a fully integrated SiRFstarIII 20 channel GPS antenna, rechargeable lithium ion battery that allows up to 5 hours of untethered operation on a single charge, 64 MB SDRAM, touch screen keyboard, built-in 1" loudspeaker, headphone jack, and mounting hardware for automobiles. Weighing just six ounces, the device has a compact size - 5.5" long, 3" wide and 1" thick - allowing it to fit into the user's pocket. Included accessories are earphones for the MP3 player, car mounting kit, universal AC and car adapters with changeable plugs and USB cable.

Whether on foot, in a car or on a bicycle, getting around in unfamiliar areas or finding alternative routes due to changing circumstances or conditions couldn't be easier. The user simply selects the town, road and address, and the Mio DigiWalker C310 does the rest. It can also be used to plan longer trips with multiple stops in advance. Maps are displayed in landscape view on the 3.5" TFT touch screen LCD and in 2D or 3D. In the 3D view, users have a better grasp of what lies ahead, including landmarks, road conditions and POIs compared to a 2-dimensional map. If the user misses a turn, exit or cannot make a transition in time, the device automatically recalculates the route and delivers new directions in real-time.
