Mio Digiwalker C710 provides Bluetooth, GPS, entertainment


It’s not enough anymore for a standalone GPS unit to *only* give you directions and ensure that you don’t lose your way, and Mio is embracing this trend with the announcement of their new Digiwalker C710.

Designed with business travelers, vacationers and commuters in mind (isn’t that everybody?), the Mio Digiwalker C710 — with its 3.5-inch touchscreen display — is a full entertainment package, complete with the ability to view digital photos, watch videos, and play music stored on its 2GB Flash ROM (or via the SD/MMC expansion slot). This unit also has an integrated Bluetooth transmitter/receiver for hands-free calling.

Of course, the Digiwalker C710 is a navigation device first and foremost, and it seems to do that quite well: Giving not only “directions”, the C710 also provides “convenience and safety with real-time traffic updates, as well as access to more than 5 million points of interest” and voice guidance.

Available through Best Buy and online today, the Mio Digiwalker C710 comes with an asking price of $650.
