Fremont, Calif. — Mio will introduce its least expensive portable GPS device to date, the DigiWalker C220 at a suggested $249.


 
Mio's C220.

The C220, Mio’s fourth U.S. personal navigation device (PND) since it entered the market a year ago, offers a 3.5-inch touch screen and maps of the United States preloaded on an SD card. It has 3.5 million points of interest (POI) and a pedestrian mode that adjusts for one way streets or taking shortcuts through a park, said the company.

The product is shipping now and will be sold through stores including Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry’s Electronics, Staples and Pep Boys.
