(GCC, Aug, 2008) – A leading maker of personal navigation devices, Mio Technology Corporation, announces the release of its 3.5” Moov 200, 4.3” Moov 300, 4.3” with Bluetooth Moov 360 car navigation system to GCC region through distributor International Marketing Services L.L.C, IMS, UAE. Geared towards GPS users, Moov series models sport all of the most fundamental features they’ll need including turn-by-turn guidance, a user-friendly touch-screen interface and a stylishly compact design.

Digital maps are not as simple as paper maps. It takes a lot more than the scanning of a paper map and turning it into picture files.
Firstly the road network is mapped using vans with cameras and, then attributes such as road names, building numbers and also the route directions are added. Enhancements such as voice guidance while driving and turn-by-turn indicators are later added, with the addition of the latest GPS technology used to communicate with the satellites, to guide you from point A to point Z.
Mio is proud to launch the advanced MioMap™ 2008 software and user interface to GCC market, which makes your navigation experience a more enjoyable one. Clearer navigation features such as the intuitive user interface, preloaded Points of Interest (POIs), turn-by-turn navigation let you keep your eyes on the road, with Arabic and English voice guidance to navigate the streets a whole lot easier,.

For easy and straightforward usability, the Moov series models are equipped with a newly redesigned touchscreen interface. The new interface features an uncluttered design with intuitive menus that even first times users can operate almost immediately. In addition, the Moov series models also offer Points of Interest icons right on the map, permitting easier location of nearby gas stations, restaurants and more.

With a stylish and compact exterior free from unsightly buttons and knobs, the Moov series models make navigation look good. Sporting a sleek black aluminum bezel and clean contours, it looks great on the dash of any car or other vehicles. With a depth of just 17 mm, the Moov series models are also suitable for navigation outside a car, fitting easily into a pocket or handbag.

To provide users the smoothest possible navigation experience, all Moov series models are equipped with the latest positioning technology from SiRF, SiRFInstantFixII™. SiRFInstantFixII is an autonomous version of SiRF’s original SiRFInstantFix technology that significantly improves the start-up times of GPS devices to as little as five seconds and also allows enhanced GPS signal reception in urban canyons. SiRFInstantFixII™ technology requires no external connection to a PC to function.

Moreover, to make navigation a bit more interesting and simple, the Moov 300/360 feature the ability to navigate to photos. Users can search download geotagged photos from portals such as flickr® and upload them onto their device. Once on the device, these photos become Photo POIs. They can be easily activated with the press of a finger, doing away with manual imputing of long addresses.
