First shown at CeBIT, as we reported a couple of months back, Mio's new satnavs, the C320, C520 and C520t are now available in the UK along with a new variation, the C320t. All of them sport a 4.3in widescreen display and split-screen view.

The 2cm-deep devices also come equipped with a docking cradle and a more powerful speaker than earlier products. They also offer the latest 2007 TeleAtlas maps and Mio's own MioMap 3 route-planning software. The two 't' versions can pick up Traffic Message Channel (TMC) reports.
