Mio Digiwalker A501 GPS PDA Phone

 

One device to rule them all?

On top of the standard install there are a few extras. First is Mio's proprietary launcher software, which gives quick and configurable, thumb or finger-based access to common functions - such as the MioMap software. This is handy, but sooner or later...

Mio DigiWalker A501 review

 

The Nokia N95 has set the benchmark for smartphones with sat-nav features and unfortunately the Mio DigiWalker A501 gets nowhere near it. The device packs plenty of features into a small space, but its sluggish performance, ugly design and lack of 3G...

Decent sat-nav features ; Good phone features

No 3G or Wi-Fi ; Ugly design ; Sluggish performance

Conclusion Full marks to Mio for trying, but the A501, at around £320 SIM-free, is a disappointing attempt at shoehorning a sat-nav, phone and PDA into a single device. Its sluggish performance, ugly design and lack of 3G and Wi-Fi support will leave...

This is a full featured PDA a phone and of course a GPS unit. However unlike some other PDA's with GPS abilities this is firstly a GPS unit and it has the ability to make phone calls and to be a PDA. Of course being a PDA you only have a soft keyboard.

It is 9.5x6x2cm and weights only less than 150grams. The viewable screen is 5.5x4cm. As a GPS unit it works exactly the same as other recent Mio units reviewed.
