Mio 269 Mobile 96MB GPS System

Navigate your way through both city streets and rural paths with the Mio 269, a sleek, easy-to-use GPS system that offers both visual and voice guidance. Housed in a flat, lightweight chassis and equipped with preinstalled maps of the continental U.S., Hawaii, and Canada on its built-in 2.5 GB hard drive, the Mio 269 makes it easy to tour unfamiliar areas whether on foot or in the car. To operate, the user merely removes the device from the box and flips the "instant-on" switch, with no installation required (all the maps and software come preloaded). Once activated, the Mio 269's powerful Intel Xscale 300 MHz processor and MioMap CE navigation software take over, delivering on-the-spot GPS access and intuitive navigation, with millions of points of interest from which to choose.

The Mio 269's comprehensive route planning is reliable and easy to follow, with point-by-point driving directions conveyed both verbally and visually in real time. Merely select the town, road, and number, and the device guides you professionally to your destination. Should users take a wrong turn or experience an unplanned detour, the Mio 269 automatically recalculates the route and delivers new directions. In 3D mode, the crisp color LCD conveys a safe and informative grasp of what lies ahead, including landmarks, road conditions, and points of interest (which include airports, gas stations, hospitals, restaurants, and tourist attractions).
