    Verified Purchase
    I read Paul B's comments before buying, but, being a SatNav virgin, thought that a big name like Sony couldn't / wouldn't make all those (sometimes simple) errors.

    It's 1-0 to Paul.

    1. With supermarkets controlling 40% of petrol stations in the UK, why doesn't Sony list them?

    2. Vista has only been out for 11 months, so why is the NV-U92TW still incompatible with it?

    3. Why, every time I switch it on, do I have to 'agree' to observe safe use whilst driving? [Its like MS insisting you agree to their EULA every time you switch your computer on.]

    4. The last journey should be the default country for all subsequent journeys.

    5. At least I paid only 2/3 of what Paul did.

    Update Oct 08.

    Because this Sony SatNav is incompatible with Vista, I couldn't 'update' the maps online. Accessing an old XP machine today, I now find Sony want to charge £90 for a current map DVD!

    If I could change my rating of this gadget, it'd be down to 1 star (but only 'cos there's no entry for Nil stars!)
    Do not buy a Sony SatNav.

    Well featured on paper, but a bit of a let down in the flesh.

    1) Maps - out of date / errors - and no sign of updates on the Sony web-site yet?

    2) Safety cameras - missing ones - lots of them, even ones that have ben there for years. No sign of update on web-site

    3) doesn't display speed limits when approaching cameras - it just says 'watch your speed' a few hundred meters beforehand - but doesn't indicate what speed - useless!

    4) doesn't display your speed when navigating! (it does display when you are just letting it follw the map, without directions - so obviously it can do it) Why?

    5) TMC - alerts don't clear automatically when you go past incidents. So you have to keep re-checking to see whether there are new problems, or just the ones you passed hours agao, still nagging you. Rubbish.

    6) TMC - you can't just say 'replan my route and avoid incidents' Why not?

    7) TMC - doesn't seem to know about all roads, and frequently traffic jams have built up significantly - yet TMC either doesn't ever report the problem, or finds reports it too late!

    8) inputting destinations and post-codes - quirky user interface / often gets (me) confused, and keeps asking what country I'm starting from. Surely, it would be sensible to assume that I'm going to a destination in the country I'm currently in? (particualrly for those of us that live in the UK)

    9) keyboard input is so slooowwwwwww - as is map redraw when scrolling around. Processor way too slow? (funnily enough my sexy-looking Sony Ericsson P990i PDA phone is equally under-powered)

    10) why the hell does it boot up and every time asks me to agree not to play with it whilst driving.

    I've used a variety of Satnavs over the last few years. My job involves visiting 8-10 addresses each day, doing field service, the Satnav makes my life easier and safer. My old Garmin Nuvi was playing up, so I decided to go for one of these Sony units. My impression after 1 month? Rubbish.

    Firstly, the touch screen. A reassuring bleep lets you know that you've inputted information, until you look at the screen to see you haven't and have to re-enter the postcode or whatever. The amount of button presses to get an address in is ridiculous.

    The time it takes to work out the navigation to my next address that may be only 5 miles away is very slow. The processor in this unit appears underpowered as the screen refresh rate is so slow you can miss turnings if using visual navigation. If you're a boy (or girl) racer, forget it - you'll have passed the turning by the time it has told you to turn! Anytime the voice is saying "turn left" or "watch your speed" the screen locks, so if using visual you miss your turning.

    Safety camera information works by the voice saying "watch your speed" whenever you are about a quarter of a mile away from one EVEN if on a motorway going over the road that has the speed camera!

    The inputting of address information will drive you crazy. It is not at all intuitive and if you press the wrong button, you'll be waiting for it to sort itself out. Sometimes it takes ages to lock on to satellites and I often have to reset the device because the screen hangs - hopeless. Why is it my cheap Nuvi is faster, brighter screen that can be seen in full summertime sunlight and can even tell me which side of the street my target address is and the Sony can't?

    The NVU-92T is an excellent piece of kit - accurate, fast and lots of features. The only bad bit is that you have to download the Safety Camera and TMC functions from the Sony website. Each country must then be entered individually as each has a different key. It would have been nice to have Bluetooth and MP3 connectivity like many other leading brands but Sony have traditionally been a conservative outfit so these are not available.
    But as a navigation aid it is excellent and I speak from experience of using GPS since their inception.
    The ViaMichelin X-980T satnav unit has more features and also needs lots of downloads but it has a massive database of POI's. However I could not find a Viamichelin unit as cheaply as the Sony unit.
    I hope that this review helps.
