Summary: The day after I purchased this item, I used it to find my way to a restaurant. Half way towards my destination the directions told me to take rt 202 south, and I did even though it didn't sound right to me. After a couple of minutes on rt 202 south it told me to make a u-turn, and I did.
Summary: Unit navigates horrible. It wants to route me to the nearest highway no matter what I do. Definately does not take you on the shortest routes. If you plan on seeing the sights this unit may work fine, but for getting from point A to point B fast this unit is not what your looking for.
Summary: I got this GPS despite reviews noting that the routing was a bit weird, that it's an end-of-life product and that I would have to buy the proprietary Sony flash card for it. It's got a beautiful screen but I decided to return it for these reasons: 1-the routing is definitely 'unusual'; I've had...
Summary: This GPS unit has a great set of features for the cost of the unit, it's got a great 4.8" screen, can play MP3s and videos, has Bluetooth for syncing and using as a hands free kit and yet.... It doesn't work great as a GPS.
Summary: Price tells all. Lots of features missing--ie., ability to choose between shortest or quickest route, ability to update maps as I'm able to successfully find an address only about 65% of the time, no "where am I" option, inability to interface with my computer to preload routes prior to a trip, no...
Summary: As many have already said, the display is beautiful - and large. The blue tooth worked well and picked up my phone easily, as well as imported the phone book. But the routing was poor and convoluted.
Summary: I bought this to replace my battery dead Tom Tom. It's got a large screen but a small mind. It only had a male and female English voice. Boring and I couldn't find how to add voices. It did not come with any cd or computer software. You have to go on line and hope that it downloads.
Summary: I bought this actually off SHOPNBC and paid more money for it as well. It's been a great tool but when trying to upgrade the maps it was impossible. The upgrade for maps are $99.00 from Sony and not even that but there have been out of stock for a year!! Do not buy.
