Summary: I like the way it look and feel. it's very easy to use and installed in my truck. down side is 1. unit is very slow to find gps signal when it start up. 2. unit had a short life of battery. 3. built in map is from year 2007 is out of date and cannot update the map for current year at all.
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.
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.
Summary: This GPS navigator has taken me hundred's of miles out of the way, it has actually given directions to non existent roads, it has my home 1/2 mile away at a different address. It is not something you want to use on trips without a map handy.
