Ultra portable, stylish personal navigation/entertainment device

Fremont (Business Wire), October 2_Mio Technology announced the ultra-portable and stylish Mio DigiWalker(tm) H610, a unique, handheld personal navigation and digital entertainment device. The latest in a series of cutting-edge navigation devices from Mio Technology, the H610 is perfect for anyone looking for real-time directions or entertainment while driving to a meeting, bicycling through town or walking through a new city. The device combines high fashion, highly accurate GPS functionality, comprehensive point-of-interest (POI) location and a feature-rich digital media player in a trendy, portable package.

Designed to travel everywhere, the H610's palm-sized form factor and powerful features add a new dimension to digital lifestyles. The ultra sleek design fits easily in a hand, pocket, purse, or can be worn with the included lanyard or wrist strap for extreme portability.

The H610 comes preloaded with maps of the US (Alaska & Hawaii included) as well as Canada, and will have users up and running in minutes without computer setup. The device features turn-by-turn voice and text navigation (in 16 languages including English, French and Spanish), which allows users to keep their eyes on the road and still get directions. The H610 also features multiple navigation modes, including one for walking and one for bicycle or car transportation. The point-of-interest search navigates to more than 3 million locations, including gas stations, restaurants, hotels, businesses and more - with addresses and phone numbers for extra convenience. For an extra personal touch, users can add their own new "POIs" as they travel.

The H610 features the WorldMate digital assistant software, which delivers up-to-date travel information and services through an easy PC update. Users just connect, refresh and go. The device also includes a full-featured MP3 player and high quality earphones with built-in controls for start, stop and volume. In addition, H610 has a digital still photo viewer that makes it easy to share photos with friends and family at home or on the road as well as a digital video player for a complete entertainment experience - anywhere, anytime.

The H610 has a 2.7" touch screen interface for easy, intuitive control over all features. Users can also import their contact list from Microsoft Outlook to easily navigate to business and personal contacts. And finally, the device has an SD/MMC slot for easy MP3, photo and video file transfer and loading and customizable memory options.

The MSRP for the Mio DigiWalker H610(tm) is $499.95 US, and the product will be available in November at a number of online outlets as well as retail locations throughout the US and Canada.
