Summary: I have had tried all major brands of GPS and even though this one gets a little "weird" some times, I must say it is: - the fastest to get a satellite signal - as accurate as a commercial GPS can be - intuitive to use Sure, it gets a little weird some times guiding me back home...
Summary: This is the first GPS system that I have used and I can only find 2 positives about it. The price is right and it is fast to recalculate a new route when you take a different turn. However, the database must be old as a 2 year old entrance on the Ohio turnpike is not recognized.
Summary: I just bought one last week. Over the weekend I tried it from Middletown,NJ to Philadelphia Zoo. I expected it should guide me to Zoo using Major Highway. Instand, it guided me to destination through center of Philadelphia city(I do set option using interstate high way option).
Summary: Sorry, but I cannot use the interface ... A very competitive price. Bur, I guess I am too used to using the simple Magelan & Garmin products. Sony I notice produce absolutely difficult user interface. I disconected it and reinstalled Magellan roadmate 700 .. Chris Williamson
Summary: I was recently married and our honeymoon included stops at 17 Major League Baseball stadiums that had us driving over 10,000 miles in 31 days. It was the funnest month for both of our lives and we both agree that without this navigation system, things could have been a lot more stressful.
Does the basics of navigation, quality mapping, speed, visuals well without many extras.

Summary: Positives: Nice and small size with a quality feel (although the back bulges outward, it is round and fits into your hands). Map database is fairly up to date, probably around late 2004. Sony's graphics are very sharp and make great use of a small 3.5" screen -- this is the unit's best feature.
Summary: I just purchased this Sony GPS and compared it with others. The sony unit has the best visual display of any. The graphics are sharp and clear. That was the primary reason I bought this unit. I don't drive in Europe and I have a car stereo that already plays MP3's so I don't need those extras.
Summary: I have had this GPS for two years. All-in-all it has been quite functional. The interface was difficult to get used to, but after a while I got the hang of it and it works pretty well. It is fast and accurate, and thought it does only a few things, it does them pretty well.
