Sony NV-U92T First Look Review
I thought I would pass this along about the new Sony GPS unit that is hitting the shelves in Europe ; the Sony NV-U92T. Pocket Lint has a quick take on what's happening with the new Sony units that were announced this past week. The screens are pushing the envelope with a big 4.8 inch widescreen design, and the gesture control interface that allows you to caress the screen in different ways to give the unit different commands.
We'll be looking forward to their full review.

I have purchased a 920T last January in Spain. It supposes to be one of the best navigators… Well, well… so much for Tom-Tom finesse! It failed too many times. The voice directions came too late quite often. Other times did no recognize the roads. The main complain is that if you don’t follow the directions given to you it took too long to find the right spot again. The thing is that your copilot, the navigator, supposes to give you the precise directions several times before you reach the point of changing directions, and if you make a mistake it suppose to give you the correction as fast as possible and take you to the correct place. Tom-Tom 920T quite often doesn’t know where you are. And gives you the wrong direction. It makes too many mistakes.
In the busy streets with a very fast traffic you need directions very accurate and fast directions. You don’t have time to look at the screen, and you don’t suppose to do that.
I trade the 920T for a Sony NV-U93T. This Sony doesn’t have so many good things as the Tom-Tom but it gives you the precise directions several times ahead. No mistakes what so ever. If you take the wrong turn off it corrects immediately. Even in large tunnels guides you perfectly and it doesn’t get lost like the Tom-Tom. With Sony you don’t have to look at the screen. I have to recognize that Sony has much too catch-up in many ways.
