Got the phone for a week, pretty happy with it. Here is what I find. The screen protector came with the phone makes the screen hard to see under the sun, because the surface side is not crystal clear. So I bought a better screen protector, put it on. The screen is much brigther now and visable under the sun.
Answers to two previous questions:
- depending on where and when you buy this phone, it will have push email. A version with Windows Mobile 5 AKU 2.3 supporting push email is planned to be relased at the end of July
- yes you can synchronise MP3 files - you need to install Active Sync 4.x and in case this still does not work do the following:
1. Plug-in the windows mobile device
2. Go to the Control Panel, and start the Network Connections applet
3. Get the Properties for the network connection for your Windows Mobile Device (usually Local Area Connection number 7 or 4 or something). You can do this by right-clicking the network connection and choosing properties
4. In the ‘This connection uses the following items’ box, try unchecking everything that is not:
a. Client for Microsoft Networks
b. File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft networks
c. Internet Protocol (TCI/IP)
5. Click OK

Hi....Does anyone know if this phone has push email? Really like the look and functionality of it, but want to have push email....
Hello'In reply to the above yes we have Vibrtion alarm, GPS is grate up an running in about 10sec max, but you need not change the setting from COM PORT 4 if you do will not work,as for skype no as no wifi. Would I recommend it yes it’s a great sat-nav unit 10/10, Phone’s not bad could be a little better ringer bit low setting little hard to find but they are their, not found how to set music/mp3 as ring tone yet Hmmmm! so 7/10. GPS 10/10 works fine with TomTom. Main reason I recommend this unit don’t like having to carry a phone,GPS box, PDA, see my point car full of chargers speaking of battery 8/10 here but comes with car charger and house charger so what can I say, not to hard to plug it in will last a good time approx 5 days if I could stop playing with it and put it down. are far as I see it the
choice you have to make is wi-fi/skype home internet or carry a gps box with you when you go out and worry about charge it up. I think I can us the home computer for skype and going on internet and just carry phone when out, Take Care
Would it be possible to run an FM radio tuner like the Eten G500 does?
I am keen to get the MIO A701 PDA. But am somewhat confused by the massive price difference between one bought in the UK or one purchased on the web and imported. Is their something to be wary of with the possible cheaper copies?
Skype would work fine, but you'd need to buy the seperate WLAN SD card for an internet connection,,, unless you wanna use it over GPRS instead!?
Can anybody tell me hoe to set up the GPS with Tom Tom Nav 5. I get the message no GPS device, I note from previous anwers I need to set the s/w to GPS_HWcom, are the any other changes (may be on the GPS settings )this doesn't seem to work?
Does mio a701 have vibration alarm?? I read in the post that the volume is rather low, so I wonder if there is vibration built-in, because it would solve the problem.
I have a Mio Mitac A180 pocket pc. I am very happy with the gps device. The CPU is a little slow and the autonomy is pour.(about 3hours).I can hardly wait to try the new mio a 701!
Hello everyone, this is realy the best phone on this moment. I have this one for 3 weeks now, and its realy great! This note i make with the a701... The built in gps is great, and the fix is fast! Tomtom 5.21 works fine. I have no bad comment for the Mitac Mio a701. Kind regards, Jorg
