RUMOR - MIO 188: A LANDSCAPE PDA GPS?


Click to Enlarge


News on the site
Even Google doesn't seem to "know" about the Mio 188 that site visitor "CIM" kindly introduced to us today with a couple of pictures!

No specs at this point, but Mio, who shot to "GPS PDA fame" with the Mio 168, the first PocketPC with a built-in GPS receiver, seem to have shrunk the GPS antenna to the point of making it barely noticeable and are using a "symetrical design" for the PDA that allows for "natural" landscape use, like on the iPAQ hx4705.

Stay tuned for more!

Any pocket PC running Windows Mobile 2003 can do landscape. I don't see any advantage in that for mapping anyway.

Do you know of any tests with the Mio168? A built-in gps can be an advantage and a disadvantage. No easy replacing.

Hard to tell as neither has made its way to my...grubby hands yet ;-)
Landscape is nice, but if you need a PDA, then the M5 would be the one, or the Mio 168 dor that matter.

Are you saying the Mio is pure GPS and no PDA function at all? I thought it runs Pocket PC or CE...

The Mio's come with Word, Excel, etc... plus Destinator (re-branded as Mio Map) for mapping.

I believe the 268/269 as it is now called in Europe at least only comes with Navigation (Navigon) and an mp3 player.

pokecai had asked about the M5 or the Mio -- I believe (not positive) that the M5 will not support NMEA protocol. Thus, if you want to run 3rd party apps, they will have to support the Garmin protocol.

Actually just received a test M5 unit today and the GPS is accessible from any app using NMEA/4,800bps, pretty nice device !

I saw the 268 in Cannes earlier this week and I'm not a big fan, bulky, cheap finish...http://cebit.textamerica.com/?r=2068224

That is good news about the M5 -- I was hesitating on ordering one because of the non-NMEA roomer. This is a little off-topic, but can you tell if it support NMEA version 3.01?

Works fine with any programs I've used, not sure how to test specifically for 3.01 ?

NMEA Version 3.01 - (maybe 2.40) You can tell that it is using the newer version of NMEA if the GSV sentences are reporting WAAS satellite information (satellite PRNs larger than 32). VisualGPSce should be able to show that information.
