Posted on Tuesday, December 13 2005 @ 21:51 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Mio has launched a new PDA today with GPS functionality.

The next-generation SiRF Star III chipset and rotational antenna of this Pocket PC not only pick up satellite signals faster and hold them better, but also ensure optimal reception in both landscape and portrait positions. And you can connect a Traffic Message Channel (TMC)* antenna to receive up-to-the-minute road information wherever you travel in Europe (except in the UK and France).
