London - After the successful introduction of the Mio Cyclo™ 300 and Cyclo™ 100 series in 2012, Mio has now developed a new, lightweight bicycle navigation range with built-in Wi-Fi, featuring a stylish flat screen of capacitive glass. The Mio Cyclo™ 500 series is primarily designed for both the performance driven cyclists and mountain bikers, weighing a mere 129 grams and featuring pre-installed maps and the unique Mio Surprise Me™ functionality. The range features three devices, the Mio Cyclo™ 500, the Cyclo™ 505 and the Cyclo™ 505 HC, and will be available starting April 2013.

The Mio Cyclo 500 devices are all equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, enabling users to connect to their MioShare™ account via Wi-Fi. This way, tracks from MioShare can effortlessly be synchronised to the device before leaving home, without even turning on a PC. Simply pressing the “WIFI sync” button on the Mio Cyclo 500 device does the trick. Any route the user wants to save after his workout can simply be uploaded to his MioShare account, using the same sync button.

Piet Deschuymer, President MiTAC Europe, “We are very proud to announce this innovative range, which has been created using feedback from our loyal users for some of its new features. We aim to bring technology of the future to the users of today, setting a new standard in the market, while staying with our initial core strategy: offering easy to use bicycle navigation.”

Today, Mio unveils the key features of the Mio Cyclo 500 series:
• Slim and stylish design – a flat screen with lightweight design of only 129 grams
• Anti-glare, capacitive glass screen – for even better sunlight readability
• Wi-Fi enabled - no need for PC connection, easy synchronisation of tracks via Wi-Fi

The Mio Cyclo 500 series naturally comes with the latest Mio Cyclo software and is equipped with the unique Mio Surprise Me™ feature. Because of the pre-installed maps, all devices are ready-to-go straight out of the box.
