Mio busts out C250 portable GPS unit on the cheap


As if Mio didn't already have enough options for snatching your GPS dollar British pound, it's now introducing the decently-featured C250 navigation device to keep things interesting. Along with that 3.5-inch touchscreen, the device features full UK maps, major European roads, speed camera locations and free traffic alerts. The device is based on a 400MHz CPU, 64MB of RAM and a SiRF Star III chipset, and can manage MP3 playback in a pinch, but seems to be mainly suited for its primary purpose. The best news is the price: at £170 ($324 US) it comes in underneath many similarly specced devices, and should be available for stuffing some stockings this holiday season.
