Mio Digiwalker A501 GPS PDA Phone

Mio Digi Walker A501


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.
