New GPS: Sony NV-U71T

Sony has announced a new GPS – the Sony NV-U71T, a new entry level GPS for Sony that will build on the market experience already gained with the Sony NV-U70 that was launched earlier this year. It will come in below the widescreen models announced in September: the Sony Nav-U80 and Nav-U81T. The NV71t will come with real time TMC traffic free for 90 days, costing $4.95 per month after that. The 3.5 inch touchscreen is about standard for the mid-tier groups, but this Sony also includes the Gesture Command that the Nav-U80 and Nav-U81T have, where you can give a swipe to the touchscreen to bring up a certain command. There are about six such commands available. For instance an inverted “V” automatically brings up navigation to go home.

Should be interesting to see what else Sony brings us, as they expand on their early market entries. “There will be a full lineup announced over the next 60 days,” said senior marketing manager Andrew Sivori.

The unit should retail for $499 and be available in December.
