Mio intros Moov GPS units on US shores

Mio Moov for US

Quickly following its European launches earlier this month, Mio today launched its Moov GPS units in US-friendly versions. The 3.5-inch Moov 200/210 and 4.3-inch Moov 300/310 are the first Mio navigators to include Mio's own mapping software and also integrate SiRF's newest InstantFixII receivers to provide a fix in as little as five seconds -- an important factor in downtown driving where a dropped update means a missed turn, Mio claims. Both Moovs also provide text-to-speech conversion to speak street names and come preloaded with maps of the entire US and Puerto Rico.

Beyond screen sizes, the new units are separated primarily by their support for real-time traffic updates. The 210 and 310 add a Traffic Message Channel device and a full year subscription to updated road conditions that can be used to reroute journeys; the 200 and 300 are simpler and leave out the feature. All Moov receivers ship April 1st, with the 200 and 210 selling for $180 and $200 respectively while the widescreen 300 and 310 boost prices to $230 and $250.
