In this paper we present results on correlation of GMI effect and soft magnetic behavior in Co-rich microwires with low magnetostriction constant. Correlation between magnetoelastic anisotropy and magnetic field dependences of diagonal and off-diagonal impedance components are observed. Low field GMI hysteresis, explained in terms of magnetoelastic anisotropy of microwires, has been suppressed by the bias current.
