Name change coming two years after merger

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Two years after it acquired the Navman satnav brand, erstwhile rival satnav maker Mio has confirmed that several co-branded devices are on the way.

Mio’s owned by Mitac which acquired the various Navman divisions – including Navman Europe – from owner Brunswick New Technologies in March 2007 for $16m (£10.6m/€11.9m).

A spokesman for Mio told us today that it’ll unveil four new satnavs, each of which will be branded “Navman Mio”, early next week.

Although the spokesman kept mum about what features drivers should expect, he did add that three of the new co-branded satnavs will be available in May. The fourth will pull up later in 2009, probably during the summer. ®
