Mitac Mio C250 DigiWalker
By D Dunbar in GPS. November 8, 2006
Another new arrival for Christmas, the Mitac Mio C250 DigiWalker, is Mio's budget GPS unit at around £170 but with some great features. Just 110 grams in weight and at 23.5mm x 81mm x 107.43mm it's one of the lightest around, yet it packs the SirfStar III and a 400mhz Samsung processor powering a 3.5" 320x240 screen. Like most new devices these days the C250 boasts an MP3 player and an SD card slot. For 170 pounds you get UK roads and major roads of Europe.

The maps are the latest 2006 maps from TeleAtlas and the software installed is Mio's own MioMap Version 3.
Mio's other new release, the H610 (which we reported earlier last month), is now available to buy. This is the device with the flowery snap on covers which Mio now claims as "the first GPS device designed especially for women". Expect to pay £270 for the H610.
