With its 2008 Moov range, Mio becomes the first major GPS manufacturer in Australia to use maps from Navteq instead of Telstra's Whereis arm.
There are three models in the new range, the Moov 300, Moov 360 and . Each unit, including the entry-level Moov 300, features a 4.3-inch screen and text-to-speech. New features — not available in all models — traffic light information, 3D landmarks, and alerts for not only speed and red light cameras but also blackspots, school zones and town entry points. All Moov models sport a new user interface which is, essentially, a warmed over version of the one used in — Navman and Mio are both owned by the same parent company.
This may be confusing for consumers as the Mio Moov range now looks, at first blush, like simply re-branded Navmans. However, CNET.com.au understands that Navman will be launching a new range within the next two months and it will sport a new, or at least different-looking, interface.
The Moov range replaces the current C-series products, including, and should be in stores by the beginning of September.
