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.

Review: Sony GPS-CS1


A new review has popped up already on teh Sony CS-1 that was recently announced. Overall the verdict is that the unit is pretty good. The author also figured out that the output will likely sync with other digital cameras too. So much for Sony only working with Sony - Thanks!

GPS Review: Sony Nav-U70 GPS Review

  • Update: See the news on the new Sony NV-71T the replacement for the NV-70.

  • Update: See the news on the New Sony Nav-U80 and Nav-U81T - HERE

    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.

    GPS Review: Sony Nav-U GPS

    The new Sony Nav-u GPS is just hitting the stores now and there’s a review that has popped up indicating that it’s not a bad little GPS. The nav-u features a 3.5-inch (diagonal) touch screen with a special coating to make it both glare- and fingerprint-resistant. It has a built-in light sensor to adjust the screen automatically for optimal viewing in any lighting condition and includes both a day and night mode. Many but not all GPS units feature this, and I think that it’s a big plus when they do. It’s a simple thing, but it makes a difference.

    Update: Want another opinion? - see our other Review of the Sony Nav-U GPS

    Sony's First GPS

    Sony has entered the GPS receiver market; taking on familiar names like Garmin, Magellan and TomTom, with an automobile GPS unit. It has a 2GB hard drive, a color screen. Stuff Magazine from the UK sees some of of its features a bit deficient versus the TomTom models, like the Go 700 that features more storage, and a touchscreen instead of the buttons on the Sony model. Longer term, Sony could be a big force in the GPS world..... or they could cough up a new Betamax. Time will tell. Price on the street is TBD, with a launch scheduled for August.
