The Mio 268 doubles as an MP3 player and contacts store and, with a 3.5-inch colour screen and 256MB map storage, will guide you all over the UK and Ireland

For recharging the unit, it took less than 2 hours but if you are going to use it in the car, you will probably keep it plugged into the charger anyway. When using the device in "text mode" the battery lasted longer then when the unit was speaking the...

Mio 268 Review

 

Deja Vu set in as we fired up the Mio 268 GPS Navigation system, but even though it uses the Destinator 4 software it has a style of it's own and a very competitive price.
