At the Paris Motor show today Mio announced a partnership with Skoda to make available a Mio Personal Navigation Device as a navigation option to Skoda Fabia, Fabia Combi and Roomster.

The Mio device developed for Skoda will be similar to these of the Mio Moov range. However, Mio and Skoda have implemented an active cradle that will both free the windscreen of any suction cup and eliminate cables on the dashboard. This active cradle also brings more security to the user, the solution having successfully passed the Euro NCAP crash test, said Mio.

The Mio navigation device will be available in October at Skoda dealerships and the cradle installation will be made by Skoda agreed partners.

The cost of the solution will be €299, including installation. Skoda used to have the same pan-european partnership with ViaMichelin when the French company was still doing PNDs.
