World News: Mio and Navman brands merge

MiTAC subsidiaries Mio and Navman are to merge the two brands.

MiTAC bought the Navman PND operations from Brunswick Corp in February 2007.

According to Samuel Wang, president of Mio Technology Corp, Mio brings core competencies in hardware to the table, while Navman brings expertise in software and content, creating a new brand that is better able to create unique, innovative products and services.

Despite the merger, the Navman brand will continue to exist in select markets, including the UK, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
