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: 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: Very Nice looking and very functional works very good with or with out antenna looks good in any vehicle big screen easy to read and follow directions good color and sound very good price would suggest this unit to anyone who is looking for a nice looking and very easy to use GPS
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. The optional traffic alert feature is well worth the $120.00 for a whole year rather than the $50.00 per month price. Anytime this gps drops below $100.00 buy it!
Summary: When I was looking at GPS' I was looking at the main brands like Magellan etc. Then my son told me about his Sony GPS. I ended up getting one because the Sony's were cheaper than the others. I thought it would be less than because it was cheaper. I was wrong. It being a Sony made it awesome. I've been using it every day. My husband who is very bad with technology has also used it and it is quite easy to use. He says he doesn't know how he lived without one.
Summary: Sony NVU73T 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator Am enjoying this wide screen version and recommend that purchasers take advantage of the free software upgrade available through Sony, taking this from Version 1 straight to V 3+.
Summary: I like this GPS compare to TOMTOM. Sony has faster update the route capability. You can update this device so often. Sony released a new map after 2 year. this device using a map from 2007. I am happy with this device! just updating is bothering. However still I dont get lost..That is all matter.
Summary: I had been searching for a GPS for a couple months and was unsure which one to buy. I had read all the reviews on here and it made my decision a little harder. I have always loved Sony electronics so when I came across this GPS for such a low price it was a no brainer. I was not disappointed. I love it, it gives clear instructions and it is easy to follow. The only two things that I don't like are, the battery life.
