Mio DigiWalker 268

 

As a standalone GPS unit, the Mio 268 does the job, but a series of minor bugs and lack of customisation options should compel you to consider other b...

Ease of use, all accessories are included in the package, fast location acquisition

Deja Vu set in as we fired up the Mio 268 GPS Navigation system, but even though it uses the Destinator 4 software it has a style of it's own and a very competitive price.
