can the mio A701 play pictures and video clips on an SD card, can you play them using the mio.
I have a MioA701 for about a year and i must say it is a great device. I only have one little problem. As i use the gps-function frequently i would have liked to pass the voice of the gps throught the car speakers. My garage says its impossible but he told me that i can pass the voice of gps through bluetooth. I tried to do this but i didn't find it until now. Can someone please help me? It's extremely anoying that the mounter hides the speaker. It is impossbile to hear the voice of the gps. My MioA701 runs with windows professional and the miomap V3
Dan, 23 Mar 2007I have just bought myself the Mio A701 and got TomTom version 6 successfully installed. When I... morehi, just read your question on navigation.
make sure tomtom card is in device and turned on.
tap the screen for menu options to appear, tap navigate to,
then tap address,
after inputting your adress the navigator will try to find the address,
you will probably find a white bar that will be on the right of the screen,
tap the white bar,
you need to go through the configure menu, you maight find other NMEA GPS is the one to use, on this screen you should see a yelloe and black circle rotating, further down the screen you will see a compass, this is for satelites, the dots inside the compass will be grey to start, along the bottom of the screen will be 14 rows of bars, all will be grey to dtart with,
the dots and bars will turn blue when you have made a gps connection.
press done if this works.
it worked with my version, but i only found it by playing around,
someone advised me to reset the baud rate to 5600, not sure if i needed to.
hope this helps and that you still have your mitac, i am still learning how to use mine and ive had it over a year.
flash it with latest WM6.1 ROM by poldo and u can use 8GB SDHC cards. Enjoy
It's a cool Phone, But It still not Enough for Person who like to use many function of fone.
I think that pocket PC is more stylus than the other, and it have GPS to make me more Easier. the most importan Think it have only Bluetooth, But It have no Wi-FI, Have no Ifrared, and have low Cam. But Actualy I still love it.
The best phone Ive bought for years. Had it for nine months now and only had it fixed for the mic/speaker.. coz I filled it full of metal dust I think from work. GPS gets confused when you leave it in 35+ degree heat. Im still learning the Windows on it. I hope the phone carriers don't loose GSM cover as it doesnt have 3G capability though. Can't seem to copy GPS mapping onto a bigger SD 2Gig card?. Sill better than all other phones.
It is a good phone sadly it has too many bugs better buy a 6110 Navigator ;)
I have owned my A701 for 6 months. I use the PDA function most and the GPS for navigating the city streets. Great unit, has not let me down. I have no trouble with phone reception. I like this model most, it has less buttons and more screen functions. 9/10
i own one of these. it's an ok device, any idea where i cand get applications and games? firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a Mio A701 since 1,5 year the first 9 months it was working perfect, except the weakness with the battery you have maximum 1/2 hour of conversation and you can't use the GPS without external energy, I use my phone for my job and I usually have 2 hours of communication. After 9 months, it began to need to be restarted 2 or 3 time a day, I had a contact with Mitac belgium, they told me to load the Windows 6 soft. I did it, after this The errors with the phone grew up to a level as I have to use it as a GPS navigator. So I'll buy a HTC P3300 and use the Mio in my second car as a GPS navigator !!!
Someone said it's heavy. At the time of it's release, it was one of the lightest devices of it's kind, at 150 g., and remember that it has almost everything integrated in it and a large screen. Most others were 170-190 g., or more.
I've had the Mio A701 for more than a year and i've never had any problems with it. It works great and it moves very fast, even with A LOT of extra aplications & games installed (SPB Mobile Shell & Phone Suite are a must). Even the phone part works good, even though I do have the lag in answering calls, which I don't really like. The signal strength is good, too. It may not be the best PHONE, the best PDA, the best GPS device, but it's a great combination of all these things. It works for me!
