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.
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: 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.
Summary: Has good road info for rural roads in Georgia, also has maps for Canada and Europe, good for when traveling. No Wifi and hard to get regular updates from Sony. Most recent update from sony ($99) is from 2009 for North America, but is available online if you're tech savvy. Also unit is able to load Total Commander in so you can load pretty much any GPS software onto, again only if you are Tech Savvy.
Summary: A very impressive bright and clear screen with fantastic colors. Very easy to understand how to setup trips and go thru all of the functions. The features leave nothing to be desired. Better than my Garmin 660 and 765T. Points of interest can be located on the map and thereby seen during the trip. However, for whatever reason the screen will suddenly become blank and the unit must be reset prior to becoming operational again. I have had it a week and it will be returned.
Summary: Product has a great screen, but is a horrible gps. It will not pick up a gps signal at times. I have tested it with 2 other units at the same time, they will pick up a signal, the Sony will not. It got me lost 3 times on the first trip I took with it. Do NOT buy this GPS........I have tested 20 different types, Sony and Nokia are the worst.
