      I’ll tell you about my first experience with the world of GPS, which was not as successful I would have liked.

      I had purchased and gift this product to myself on my birthday. The first thing that surprised me is that you give away a model of the Sony brand. At first glance it seemed a good gift, because the price was quite high, about 350-400 euros, and also the Sony seemed to ensure minimal product quality.

      The GPS consists of the device itself, which is quite bulky and heavy, far more than their counterparts from other brands. The shape of it is flat on the front which houses the 3.5-inch touch screen, while its back is curved, with the speaker in the rear. Its shape and weight make it highly inappropriate for some moments or to take over once you leave the car. The other part of the GPS is the GPS support structure, if the GPS is already heavy and


      bulky; the seat of the chair is incredibly large. Stability is very good overall, but at the cost of which becomes very cumbersome for transport when it is installed.

      The suction cup is quite good and has a double safety locking, which makes it virtually impossible to jump from its place in the glass of the vehicle.

      The battery is pretty good for Li-ion, and may reach a range of 4 hours, although I have not ever lasted me over 3 hours. Within the same package of GPS, includes a charger for the vehicle through the cigarette lighter, and strangely, a charger for the electric current, usually in other GPS do you usually have to buy separately. That is a nice touch from the company Sony, but we must mention that you’ve already paid more than the price of GPS.

      As for the operation of GPS, that is very similar to other GPS brands.

      Everything works through the touch screen and fairly simple ...


      • and intuitive menus. Programming is relatively simple, although it is quite difficult to plan alternatives to the route originally proposed.

        U-50 this model has maps of Spain, Portugal and Andorra, even if it includes part of southern France. If you have not thought out of this territorial space is more than enough. The internal memory is 512 Mg leads, so you cannot enter any other map, at least without removing the existing one. It also has no expansion slots or to put memory cards with new maps and new features. The top U-70 contains the maps of all Europe.

        On its functionality, which is surely the most important of all GPS, which is pretty bad. The indications provided by the voice of the GPS are not very accurate. Surely it is because some maps are outdated, or the operation of GPS is not fully achieved. This GPS has taken me places that are then contradicted. Quote of the back please, it’s their favorite.

        In those moments you realize that it is a good GPS, and much Sony is called, also produce bad products. On this side, which is probably the most important of all GPS, I would not recommend at all.

        On the connectivity to the computer, to comment that includes a CD with the drivers of the GPS, but the software update does not exist. You can only update the menus, and more than 2 years did not make any update. Whether you want a new map, the solution is to pay through their website. There are no alternative programs or other utilities to download or install, in short, a fiasco of connectivity. I was very disappointed to prove it.

        In short, an attractive product that stands alone in that attractive, because the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. Is unwieldy, heavy, bulky and most of its operation is very bad for Sony to be called. Not recommend it. Suggest you go away to a more extended standard similar type.
