The new Mio Spirit 687 sat nav is part of a current trend for large displays on GPS devices. The interface is as clear and complete as ever, and adds a few handy new features, some of which represent a genuine innovation. Of course, a large screen takes up a lot of space. At 14 cm across, the Mio Spirit 687 isn't the easiest device to slide out of the way, despite being relatively thin (17 mm) and light (185 g). The exterior is perfectly reasonable, but the whole thing looks cheaper than it is because of the rather dubious quality plastics and the all too standard glossy black finish. The good news is that the 5'' screen has a matte finish and it soon takes up all your attention. It's bright, has good contrast and viewing angles and combines a good quality display with excellent touch-sensitive performance. Nevertheless, it's a resistive touchscreen, meaning it can only record a tap in one area at once (so no multitouch). The suction mount is the same as usual and is starting to look dated. It sticks to the windscreen well enough, but it's the connection between the device and the stand that poses a problem, especially when you want to get the GPS out.
