Mio A701

Handhelds are convenient platforms for GPS navigation, and the current trend is for manufacturers to build the GPS receiver into the device, rather than rely on an external unit. This provides an even more convenient solution: there's no need to pair the handheld with a Bluetooth GPS receiver or fiddle with wired connections; you avoid separate charge cables and regimes; and you don't have to find in-vehicle locations for two devices. When such a device also accommodates a mobile phone, the result can be presented as the ultimate business traveller’s solution. This is the claim for the Windows Mobile 5.0-based Mio A701, which costs £449 (inc. VAT) with Mio Map navigation software and European maps, and £379 (inc. VAT) without the navigation software/map bundle.
