Great GPS BUT map is 4 years out of date and can't be updated!

Summary: This was a very good product until the map became so outdated - last update (no longer available) was in 2010. We can no longer use the Take Me Home feature because our home is not on it's map. Really sad that Sony quit supporting this product. I suppose you could use it if you don't go anywhere that wasn't on the map 4 years ago, such as our new housing development.
Summary: I liked the product. It has served me well in the 2 years I've had it. Just went to Sony site and there is no map update available on the SOny site any more (was there in early December, but now no longer available. Called and the customer service rep at Sony said that there may no longer be any updates available for this product (not an out of stock situation) just no updates.
Summary: This device is slow on getting GPS signal when boots. But once it gets signal, it works well. It has better accuracy than magellan. The split screen is very nice feature, u can hardly miss a turn. Search by address is not very user friendly. It asks ur street name before the City/town name.
Summary: price was very reasonable... unit works perfect... no scratches or anything... the package didnt had traffic antenna i wrote back to the seller and she shipped antenna immediately... so it was good experience...
Summary: I like it's big however i drive a compact car so now i feel weird... it has a pretty simple interferance to work with the touch screen is very nice and accurately has some nice features bluetooth you.. hook up your phone via bluetooth it through it and then your gps can pick up your calls, call home, or anyone you want and talk through it ...pretty snazzy and handy when driving if you dont like the little ear pieces ..........
Summary: I don't have much GPS experience to draw from, but the wife and I love this GPS so far. The only complaint is that it sometimes takes a while to lock on to the satellites. Other than that no complaints, but we don't use all of it's other features that much so I can't really speak to those.
Summary: Very good product, easy to use and very accurate. Has 911 addresses for ease in finding rural locations. It has locked up on my twice in the last 3 months, but it is equiped with a reset button for a quick fix. The clarity is exceptional and the automatic day night dimmer is a great feature as well. For the $150 price I paid I am extremely happy.
Summary: This works a lot better than an earlier version I had tried. Still a little slow at aquiring a fix at start up! Not bad but I wish they had something that when the unit is powered down, such as turning your car off at your destination,the unit would remember that location, and not take so long to aquire. Realy love the super suction cup as I can attached it to the dash instead of the windshield. Also like the power cord that plugs into the mount instead of the GPS.
Summary: First know that some of these units have a virus in them. Once you get it go to the site and the numbers are there. I have had this gps for a couple of days. The main reason I chose this one was the gps, reviews, brand name, the large widescreen (getting older),text to speech and for my business What I can say what I like about this GPS is the way the cradle clicks on and off the base. It sticks very well to the window and don't leave any residue on it.
