Mio completes its sat nav line-up with powerful, entry-level Moov M-Series

20 August 2009 For Immediate Release

Entry-level M300 and M400 deliver feature-rich, value for money navigation

Leading sat nav maker Mio today announces its new, entry-level Moov M-series range. Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Moov Spirit range and high-end Moov Spirit TV, the new models complete Mio’s already impressive product portfolio.

Boasting the latest in satellite navigation technology, the Moov M-series range is ideal for those looking for a top quality device at an affordable price.  Two models are available – the neat, 3.5inch M300 and the pixel-perfect, 4.3inch widescreen M400.

Powerful, value for money navigation

The Moov M-series range represents great value for money with an impressive host of features to ensure stress free driving. Both models are equipped with SiRFInstantFixII positioning technology for a five-times faster GPS connection, allowing users to get their journeys started more quickly and easily. The devices also come complete with lane guidance and enhanced, spoken motorway exit instructions to make navigating through busy motorway junctions as easy as possible. By connecting the M-Series models to a PC, drivers can also use Mio’s Local Search tool to access a huge range of information on local destinations, such as restaurants or shops, through the MioMore desktop application.

The Moov M400 also includes NavPix™ geo-tagged photo navigation, pioneered by Mio in its previous Navman devices. With the built-in photo album, users can browse through a huge variety of pictures such as tourist sites, hideaway beaches, hotels and restaurants. With over a million geo-tagged photos available for free on the NavPix™ website and Flickr, a whole new world can be explored by navigating to pictures.

Unrivalled after sale support

As with all Mio devices, the Moov M300 and Moov M400 are backed up by Mio’s outstanding customer service. Mio’s dedicated team of over 50 staff provides support to over 40 countries in 17 languages, with 80% of all calls answered within 30 seconds.

Colin Holloway, Marketing Communications Director, Mio, commented: “Mio has developed an ideal sat nav system for first time buyers and those hoping to upgrade older models in the current economic climate. The Moov M-series range, with its sophisticated features and affordable price tag, brings drivers state-of-the-art navigational technology without breaking the bank. The M-series completes our product proposition and means that we now have suitable devices for any customer, from the entry-level up to our high-end TV devices.”

The Moov M300 and Moov M400 are both available in stores now. Also available are the Moov M300 Europe and Moov M400 Europe, which include all the above features with the added benefit of pre-loaded map data for 23 Western European countries.
