When you say Mio you instinctively think GPS handhelds and Mio 269+ is no exception. Except this handheld lets you listen to view photos, videos and listen to mp3s as well.
As if finding your way without a street directory wasn’t enough, Mio has added entertainment to the mix with the release of its latest handheld GPS system, the Mio 269+.
The first GPS system with a built-in 2.5G hard drive comes pre-loaded with Sensis maps of Australia. The device has enough room for 2G of hard disk storage for music, videos and pictures.
Jay Ko, Senior Product Manager of Synnex, distributors of the Mio range says: “The Mio 269+ is a device that combines GPS navigation with entertainment and storage capabilities. We believe this will prove to be very popular with consumers who are looking for a device that can fulfill many needs at once.”
The highly receptive Mio269+ uses the latest high-sensitivity GPS reception system and can provide an accurate positioning even in areas where the signal might be weak. With the Mio 269+ you can query any location in Australia to find any address as well as local points of interest such as hotels, restaurants, speed camera warnings and petrol stations. Mio Maps’ state-of-the-art technology also allows you to avoid road works, traffic jams and even toll roads.
