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

The remaining differences are inside. The 687 comes equipped with twice the memory of the 685 - 4GB instead of 2GB. Both are supplied with maps for 44 European countries, but the 685 only has 23 countries preinstalled, and if you want to install any...

Mio Spirit 687 review

Although, alternatives announcers can be installed manually, for the price, there really should be more than one bundled voice character on-board. Also, it's a shame that the voice command system doesn't really further the breed in any way. Yet, for...

Does it all at a good price

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.
