"Great Display - really bad GPS"1.5 starson by cchio
Pros: Love the screen and ease of use.
Cons: The GPS is really bad. In the Berkshires I placed an address that through back roads and streets is 2.3 miles. The GPS took me to a main road and 4.2 miles later got me there. I had set "shortest" distance in the options, this does not seem to matter
Summary: I love the unit size, screen, menus, who it works, etc. But as in another review here, the bottom line is getting there in time. My old Garmin and my laptop using nRoute both gave me the short distance through back roads. The Sony unit send me the very long way. Yes it got me there but several miles more, using more gas and wasting time.
I have been using Sony laptops for about 10 years. I used the nRoute on my car laptop "PSG-SRX99P" my favorite old Sony laptop. I wish Sony would make an effort to make their GPS routing as good as that little laptop. Or any of my other 2 15 inch ones.
Sony you let me down this time!
