Summary: This is for me a good gps for new users. What really pushed me buy this is because it is SONY. I am loving it because I dont really travel a lot. I mean the farthest I go would be like 10 miles...so this one is good enough for me.
Summary: This GPS is easy to use and I have bought 3 in total, for myself and family. The 1st at Sam's club, the next 2 from Amazon. The only problem this thing seems to have is when there is a service road running parallel to the highway, it often thinks that you are on that service road, and starts giving...
Summary: May have good features but it is EXTREMELY fragile. Some over paid VP decided to place a micro thin piece of glass as a cover for the screen it breaks buy light handling. I bought 2 at once and both were broken with in 2 months.
Summary: Since this one was actually cheaper than the 3.5 inch model, I chose the 4.3 inch Widescreen. My only complaint is that is always uses toll and/or major interstates eventhough a side street would be shorter. Also, don't expect it to work in large parking lots.
Summary: I love my new GPS. I was having a hard time deciding and this came up on the Amazon deal of the day, so I checked it out. I read these reviews to help me with my purchases so thought I should leave one to help others out. It was so easy to use right out of the box.

Summary: 6/09-- HAVING USED THIS UNIT FOR SEVERAL MONTHS I WANT TO REVISE MY ORIGINAL COMMENTS, AND LOWER MY ORIGINAL RATING FROM 3 TO 2. (EDITED COMMENTS ARE IN BOLD) I'm a big Sony fan, so I bought it even after reading it's mediocre reviews.
Summary: After reading the reviews on this page my wife and I were a bit nervous about buying this GPS. But we decided to do so despite the problems in some of the reviews about it being very slow with outdated maps etc. But we have had no such problems!
Summary: As the title suggests, unless this GPS has the latest firmware update, you're not going to have a positive experience with this GPS. Now, with the firmware update this GPS really is a bargain for the price (I picked mine up for 99.95 as a gold box deal).
