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 built in map is from year 2007 is out of date and cannot update the map for current year at all.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: This the worst GPS I tried so far. I have had a chance to try TomTom Go 920, Magellan Maestro 4250, and Garmin Nuvi 660, Mio C720t, and Staple's own Omnitech. The Sony can't hold a candle to any one of these when it comes down to navigation.
Summary: The good: The device looks great, and the supersuction cup works great as well. I have it mounted on my dashboard and it barely moves. The 4.8" screen is large enough and the touch screen works OK most of the time, not like the iphone but it does the job.
