Mio DigiWalker C720t GPS System
The previous news related to GPS navigation systems had Holux, Asus, and IO Data as the target, but one of the popular GPS manufacturers, also known as Mio, has announced a new device with the following codename: C720t. Obviously, this is an upgrade of previous versions, and the best part of all – it is the first Mio GPS system that comes with a digital camera.
The good thing about the 2 megapixel digital camera is that its functions are not normal, for instance, you can embed GPS coordinates into an image, and navigate back to it as if it were an address.
The other strange feature is associated with the capturing lens, and being able to distinguish business card which are afterwards stored in the contact list. Pretty useful if you ask me – you can lose the business cards, but at least the important information will be in a safe place.
Other features on the new DigiWalker C720t include a big storage capacity – 2GB of flash memory plus 64MB of RAM, a TFT touchscreen that measures 4.3” and gives a 480×272 pixels resolution.
Evidently, there are plenty of POI’s (Points Of Interest) – 12 million to be exact, and I bet you’ll never get to know 5% of all. To expand the memory there is compatibility with SD and MMC memory cards. The split-screen interface on the C720t can be used to check real time traffic information, so you can keep an eye on the traffic, and the other on the route.
In terms of price and launch date, $600 and already available.
