    With the summer driving and vacation season upon us, you may be considering a GPS purchase in your future, so it's no surprise that a lot of new models have hit the stores in recent weeks. One is the Sony Nav-U NV-U70, a major effort by Sony to get into the growing mobile GPS catagory. The product appears to be a real player, with solid navigation and decent features. There was a recent PC Magazine review online (see our article), that gave the unit praise for its ease of use, but thought that there were some other products on the marketplace that gave better featuresets for the same or better price; but isn't that almost always the case with Sony?

    Another review has popped up online that takes a look at the Sony Nav-U70. This time CNet takes a look at the new entry from Sony and sees a nice simple interface on this GPS, but has a few questins about it too. They give it a 6.3 out of 10.

    CNet's bottom line is: "The Sony NV-U70 is a solid in-car nav system for the GPS newbie, offering ease of use and accurate directions, but you can get more for your money from competing products." They continue to say that " Don't let the Sony NV-U70's diminutive size fool you, as it's a solid and accurate performer."

    I would expect that Sony will continue in this market, upping the ante to the game and continue to push ease of use, new features and improved interfaces. They are going up against some tough competition who have learned a lot the hard way of putting products out and learning from numerous product cycles. It will be a pleasure to watch Sony in the GPS market.
