Works well for where I live. Wouldn't trust it in a big city.

Summary: I like the screen size and the accuracy of the unit. It's easy to program and the voice commands are right there. The Bluetooth hook to cell phone is very handy. Too bad they don't make it anymore, because the maps are out dated. 2009 are the latest updates available.
Summary: When Sony first time announced NVU83T in 2008, I have already wanted this product, but the price making me to think it over. Now after these years,other brand name hand held GPS devices are still pricey, however, we as a consumer have more chooses about GPS.
Good value - unfortunately no future map updates available.

Summary: Unfortunately Sony no longer supports this particular model. What that means is there will not be any future map updates. Overall, the unit is fairly easy to use. One feature I'm not to happy with is the choice of routes which the unit selects when trying to get to a destination.
Summary: This Sony GPS is the best out there on the market. The big screen is another plus vs other brands. Its best mapping and short cut routes that no other GPS can do it. I recently went a place that with this Sony GPS, it took a really short cut route that the travel time was shorten at least 10 minutes...
Summary: If Sony is still selling this thing I am truly surprised but I do see some for sale here. This is the biggest piece of junk made. I used mine for about a year and finally got fed up with it when it dead ended me at a river. I ended up throwing it in to the river.
Summary: The GPS worked great for a year then it started hanging up, unable to find satellites. I have tried updates. It turns on and acts like it wants to work but won't. I tried to go through the SONY website maze but information and customer service is difficult if not impossible to get through.
Summary: Pros: The large screen, easy to operate, pleasant voice. Cons: My biggest frustration with this product is that I was unaware of a map upgrade prior to 2010. Sony no longer offers Map upgrades and I'm stuck with maps from 2008.
Easy to use, forgiving, can handsfree your cell phone, You never get lost!

Summary: Okay, this review is in english. It is the easiest gps I have ever used. I had the previous model(crushed it with a drill accideentally) and tried others but this is it. You can easily find businesses and addresses. You can talk handsfree with your cellphone through the gps.
