Summary: I found the display very good no problem just glancing over to see ..but I am less than happy with the ease of use. To get the unit to remember my starting point home It took a while. It also did not anticipate as I was entering info. I had an older unit that crapped out so I tried Sony this time .They didn't knock this one out of the park as they do with most other products that I have bought.. Reception was less than my older unit.
Summary: I got the Sony U73T back in 2009. me and my friend drove from North Carolina To Norfolk, VA. I felt like it took us way out the way. We went know where near I-95. we went past farms and places that looked like people should not go. but we did enjoy the scenery. The design is beautiful and the split screen and lane suggestions are awesome and very nice to look at. I havent used it since Sony provided software upgrades.
Works great unless the display gets broken (display screen unavailable).

Summary: with advancement in electronics, this unit works well but obviously not to the standards of today's electronics. It performs very well when compared to the electronics of it's time. I bought it to replace a unit like it that I already had but has a broken display. My old unit still works but unusable due to no display.
Summary: My husband's Sony NV-U73T was stolen from his car and he wanted to replace it with the very same brand and model. We were told Sony no longer makes GPS systems but when checking Ebay, we found the exact GSP we wanted. The product was in excellent condition and exactly what we were looking for. We are very pleased with our purchase.
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. It says the street language, it tells you which lane if you need to take a ramp going to the the next exit in the freeway (which for me is tyhe most helpful)...So I give 3.5 stars generally.
Summary: I bought this GPS thinking it was great buy but, it's bad. I can't use it in any other state other than NJ. I tried to use it NY and it doesn't take an address. Its hard to follow since it gives us the turns and everything late therefore i have missed many of my exits. Its not reliable! I highly do not recommend anyone buying GPS!
Summary: NOT Dual-View-3D Junction Guide, just left split screen bigger than right,NOT Real-time traffic information radio reception, NOT The Nav-U comes with a 3-month traffic subscription or need to check with Sony at 800-222-766, the phone call picture isn't in this item, 2007 map even cannot update. Except these,other things are fine in this item I bought.
