Update for Mio Cx20 series : TeleAtlas 2008 maps with new MME Interface

Updated February 4th, 2010
It's generally good news when a GPS maker makes new maps available for users who invested in an expensive system several years ago, but the new C-Series Map Update for North America should be looked at closely.

For a start it's not free at $60, unlike the similar (identical?) update for the Moov series last summer, it comes with TeleAtlas 2008.10 maps (TomTom are already using 2009.06 maps) and it will change the "user interface" to MME. This means that the powerful iGO 2006 based MioMap 3.3 software is getting replaced by the ex-Navman software. A move that didn't sit well with the Australian and European users last year. You can use the Mio C-Series Map Update for America available topic started by tourguy in the "Mio AIO Forums -" to discuss.

Updated June 10th, 2009 - The new Mio Spirit GPS systems will soon be available, but in the meantime Mio are staying busy with the Free 2009 Map Update for the Mio Moov...

... and Knight Rider GPS systems originally announced for the end of May.

It is now available for download (the DVD version will wait until June 16th) and some forum members gave it a try...with mixed results. You can use the Mio Moov Free 2009 Map update available topic of the Mio forums to discuss.

Updated January 30th, 2009 - While Garmin, TomTom or Navigon enhance their navigation software wich each new release, Mio generally makes drastic changes...Keeping count, the upcoming "Spirit" software to be used on the Mio S series recently announced at the CES show in Las Vegas is the fifth version of MioMap since 2003 (Destinator in 2003, Navigon 4/5 in 2004/2005, iGO 2006/8 in 2006/2007, Navman in 2008) ! It's easy to confuse users with all these changes, especially since Mio generally does not offer an upgrade path, the iGo 2006 on the 26x+ being the exception. Spirit picks up from the Navman software inherited from the acquisition in 2007 of Navman by Mitac, the parent-company of Mio and used "as is" on the Moov series in 2008. The slightly dated Navman map display is back, but the interface has been entirely redesigned with iPhone like "sliding menus" usual we'll reserve judgment until it has been tested on the road, in the meantime you can take a look at the slightly "off the wall" articles posted on a blog maintained by Mio. You can use the Mio announces GPS Series in Spirit topic in the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated October 31st, 2008 - Mio are expanding the Moov range, launched earlier this year after the switch from the stunning iGo software to the rather "pedestrian" Navman software, with the Moov 500. While it stands out from the competition with its 4.7" screen, TMC is now optional versus the free 1 year subscription on the Moov 310 and there is no lane guidance or fancy reality view so it might struggle in the market...

... You can use this topic of the Mio forums to discuss.

In other news, Mio have recently announced a free map update for Moov and "Knight Rider" systems purchased between April 1st 2008 and January 20th, 2009, older systems need not apply unfortunately.

Updated April 18th, 2008 - Paul's review of the US Mio Moov 310 is now available on the portal. Not a bad device but not a very exciting one either, unlike the iGo based MIO C310x that came out in late 2006. This could be a problem in an increasingly competitive market...

.... The European version will be launched in Paris next week and it will have an additional and groundbreaking feature : local search via a Bluetooth phone. Connected features are expected in the US towards the end of the year via the ATX partnership announced at CTIA earlier this month.

Updated April 2nd, 2008 - Mio USA have recently updated their website to show the new Moov Range that includes the 200, 210, 300 and 310. The big change compared to the GPS systems that put Mio on the map is the move from the impressive iGo software to the duller Navman software. Unsurprisingly the first reviews are rather negative and the Moov was not even redeemed by the fast GPS acquisition normally provided by SiRFinstantFixII as the reviewer didn't take the time to...

... look into its inner workings, but then most users won't either...Hopefully we can also get a review unit to run our own comparisons, in the meantime you can use this topic of the section of the forums to discuss.

In other news, Mio have announced a partnership with ATX to add connected navigation to their future GPS systems.

Posted March 7th, 2008 - The world of GPS has been on the moove for a few years now, hence maybe Mio's decision to call their new range the..."Moov". It also fits the change of navigation software from iGo to Navman following its purchase by Mitac, Mio's parent company, in 2007. For those who were wondering whether iGo the "liquid navigator" would still be used by Mio, the guessing is over since Nav N Go the makers of iGo have just announced that they were suspending shipments to Mio following repeated breaches of contract. A sad way to end a successful association...

The MioMore lineup includes de 200, 330 and 370 units in Europe all with MioMore for local searches via a bluetooth mobile phone (except the 200, via PC only) and SiRFinstantFixII for faster GPS acquisition. Apparently the US models will not have the MioMore feature, which is odd since "local searching" works well in the US and will be featured on the much anticipated Dash GPS unit. Hopefully Mio USA will weigh in on this. Availability is announced for the "end of April" do in the meantime you can use this topic of the section of the forums to discuss.
