Mio DigiWalker GPS Duo

GPS specialist Mio at CES previewed two receivers geared both to essentialist users and those in the mid-range. The DigiWalker C250 (shown) is focused almost exclusively on navigation for those drivers who prefer minimal expense: little beyond the 3.5-inch touchscreen surrounds the device, which comes only with a headphone jack and speaker for audio duties and comes with an SD card containing a map of the US. Music playback is possible but has not been confirmed, the company says. Mio plans a release by the end of this quarter for $299, $50 or more below most similar GPS mapping systems.

Above the entry-level model will be the DigiWalker C520, a portrait-style receiver with a 4.3-inch wide touchscreen and a Bluetooth transmitter for establishing hands-free calls through many cellphones. Its manufacturer has yet to commit to a price but promises a launch within the first half of 2007. Click through for a photo of the C520.
