Sony NV-U50

  • Excerpt: I’ll tell you about my first experience with the world of GPS, which was not as successful I would have liked. I had purchased and gift this product to myself on my birthday. The first thing that surprised me is that you give away a model of the Sony brand. At first glance it seemed a good gift, because the price was quite high, about 350-400 euros, and also the Sony seemed to ensure minimal product quality.

Decent Touch Screen Navigator

eeyore220..., Ciao
14 January 2008
  • Excerpt: "...I personally prefer the clean Sony software display over the Tom Tom maps. The maps can be displayed in 2D or 3D view and can be scrolled around fairly easily, if required. Battery Indicators, next turn, current and next road are overlaid and some items can be removed from the display for clarity. Navigation is pretty good on the whole. Warnings are given in advance for turning right/left etc... however, sometimes at roundabouts I\'m told to get ...
  • Pros: Nice Display, TouchScreen
  • Cons: Doesn't warn early enough for secondary turns .  No non - touch volume controls .

NAVU50

3 out of 5, CompareStorePrices

  • Excerpt: I have now owned the NAVU50 for two weeks. These are my findings. It only accepts 4-5 digit postcodes. The salesman assured me it took 7 digits. It covers long journeys reasonably well but because of the postcode shortcomings it will abandon you anything from 1/4 mile to 150 yards from your final destination.

Sat Nav (or sat navel gazing?)

Lofnorsk, Ciao
6 January 2007
  • Excerpt: "...digits in her postcode. The Sony NV-U 50 only allows you to input four digits into the display (via a rather nifty touch screen i might add) which was incredibly annoying and whilst we could use the device for some of the way by inputting area names and then street names, we had to resort to the traditional map reading and as i was in the passenger seat, my boyfriend found this to be the most annoying of all! (I am terrible at reading maps). The maximum ...
  • Pros: Excellent when teamed with a map, nice appearance, fast route - changer
  • Cons: Cost, lack of documentation, slightly buggy

Tidy system that does the job well

flamesnm, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "I purchased the Sony NV-U 50T sat nav system because I have my own business that requires me to visit customers to survey. I became fed up with wasting time looking up addresses in the a-z so thought sat nav was the way to go. Reliability I have owned the system now for about 2 months and have had no problems with it yet. It seems to pick up signals quickly and has not crashed at all or needed reseting. The mapping appears to be very accurate ...
  • Pros: Good quality mapping
  • Cons: is the traffic system worthwhile?

Grundsolide und robust

gramontapo, eBay.de
2 February 2014
  • Summary: Die Halterung des Navis macht einen hochwertigen Eindruck & ermöglicht fast jeden Winkel. Leider ist der Navi recht schwer, so dass manche Wackler übertragen werden. Saugnapf ist super. Routenberechnung wird rechtzeitig angesagt, lediglich die Satelittensuche dauert etwas länger. Die Routeninformationen sind nicht sehr umfangsreich aber völlig ausreichend. Das Kartenmaterial ist etwas veraltet, ein update ist derzeit nicht zu erreichen. Die Lautstärke aut & verständlich.

Sony NVU50T es una buena opción.

frituras, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Mi pareja no hace mucho tiempo aún compró para su coche el GPS Sony NVU50T aunque en realidad a ha hora de la realidad lo utilizamos indistintamente los dos en nuestros respectivos coches. Es bastante fácil de instalar en el coche que tanto utilizo casi a diario . Estamos en un momento en el que los sistemas de navegación por satélite se han hecho populares y a raíz de esto en el mercado los hay más caros y más baratos que el Sony NVU50T.
  • Pros: es una buena opción
  • Cons: no hay desventajas
