Mio Spirit 687


Does Mio's higher-end Spirit 687 offer as good value as its keenly priced Spirit 685?

5in screen ; AV input ; Maps for 44 European countires

Not as good value as the 685 ; Live services require tethered 3G smartphone ; No full UK postcode search

Mio Spirit 687 review

Tends to send you the wrong way as and when it wishes. Can also send you to a place one way then back another way?

It's ok, there are better


I bought this to replace a stopped-working Navman. The Mio is essentially an upgrade with more modern features, and traffic alerts built in. It is an improvement in many ways : the 5" screen is nice & clear, the lane guidance is very helpful , though...

Good size and clear. Not sure you can change the voice.

Software not up to date when bought. Took it away and motorways in France that had been there a year or so were not on it.
