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 built in map is from year 2007 is out of date and cannot update the map for current year at all.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: I'd have to agree with some reviews.Takes you to through the highways and takes the longest ways. I purchased live traffic and it doesn't do anything at all. Just waist of money there.. Takes waaayyy too long to reroute or, if you are moving then it takes about 2-5 minutes to calculate. Hate it.

Summary: The installed factory maps are ancient!!!!!!!!! Should I throw in the towel for a major map defitiancy issue? Admitedly, Sony installed an old map, and now recommends the CD update to fix all the "confusing and convoluted" map issues.
Summary: I bought this GPS last week and I already had to return it. It was taking a really long (30-40 minutes) for it to find a signal. I was on the phone with Sony for a really long time. They asked me to reset my unit and it worked fine for about half hour.
Summary: on the plus: -very short boot time (almost instantaneous) -excellent screen on the minus: -on occasion the suggested route is not optimal -the way it handles the Favorite Destinations: . - you can only set 4 favorites . - if you need to deal with more than 4, your only options are to: . .
Summary: ***************** Avoid this GPS ***************** I bought this on December 15th when I drove from Detroit Michigan to Austin Texas. I have a very bad scene of direction and knew that I would get lost with out it. I bought mine when it was $399.
Summary: I thought this nav unit was a bargin at it's present reduced price of $199 on Amazon, especially with the 4.8" screen size, so I bought it. I have been very impressed with the look and organization of the display and the Bluetooth has performed flawlessly.
