The most honest review you can get.
I just recently had a Sony Sat Nav - U70. This model and design is exactly the same as the Sat Nav - U50 except that the U70 model has international and european maps built in. I then upgraded to a Tom Tom 1 (3rd edition). I will noted the advantages and disadvantages of each; Advantages / Things I liked of Sony sat Nav - 70; - Screen colours. Very professional and crystal clear. - Absolutley loved the count down timer on side of screen. Made it easy to know when next turn was. - Cup holder. Very rohbust. Fitted very firmly and gave you confidence it would not move an inch. - Easy to Use with simple Menu instructions, and completely straight forward. - Charging in car. You could connect the car charger to the cup holder rather than the Sony Sat nav device itself. This made it allot easier when disconnecting the Sat Nav from cup holder as as I could leave the car charged in the car, and easily disconnect the sat nav devise at end of trip - Gave you options of shortest, fastest routes etc. - Battery life. Was exceptionally long and excellent. - Light sensitive screen (worked automatically therefore lighting adjusted depending on time of day) Dislikes of the Sony Sat Nav 70/50. - Took its time start up. - took its time in planning out routes. - No Speed Camera Alerts. - Found it difficult to pic up signal once when I was on motorway. - When you wanted it to search for a destination to travel to you had to punch in City, Area, Street. I found this really long winded and laborious. - Postal Search option was a joke also. Likes of Tom tom 1. - Easy to use. - Picks up signal allot quicker. - more options, types of voices, screen colours. - More points of interests. - All i need to now do is type in post code and it draws up directions straight away. No need for that long winded process like in Sony system (in Fairness though the Sony Sat Nav I had was outdated therefore this option prob has been improved in the newer system. - Has a classy option called 'Demo mode' which shows you road by road travel of trip before you even start journey. Dislikes of Tom Tom 1. - You have to Plug the car charger into the Tom Tom itself and not into the crader holder unlike Sony system. - not an automatic light sensitive screen. you have to do this manually. - Screen colours are like a cartoon. They are just so childish, although the Tom Tom does give you more colour options. Looks very unprofessional though compared to Sony. - Battery Life is aweful. I have to have the charger in the Sat Nav devise at all times. Sony is far more superior. Each model has its advantages and disadvantages (Although the Tom Tom I am comparing it against is a much newer version). If I had the funds I would recommend a "Newer" model of the Sony, and not the Sony Sat Nav 50/70. I would not recommend a Tom tom either as nothing can compare to the great name or reliability of Sony. I am sure the latest Sony models have overcome the weaknesses noted above. Hope you have found this useful. Thanks Read full review

POOR VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY
as a basic introduction to the world of satnav this is ok but be warned there is no updates available fir this model any more. the most up to date software is 3 years old so be advised that this satnav will try and send you the wrong way if roads have changed since this was last updated. post code search functon is poor. I found you had to use the long winded way of city street door number etc to get the most accurate route summary DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON ONE OF THESE SPEND THE EXTRA AND BUY SOMETHING YOU CAN AT LEAST UPDATE

Nice sat nav unit, bit bulky, fairly easy to use, but needs updating as some roads are not on there. I wont be keeping mine as I find as with all sat navs they never take you on the most obvious, direct route. I put in Alton Towers and it told me to come off at junction 4, M6, whereas it really is junction 15 ! Glad I knew where I was going.
