Sony's 4.3 inch widescreen GPS system is just $300, which isn't a bad price when you consider you'll pay from $100 or more for a Garmin system.
The Sony system also comes in a 4.8 inch size for $400.
Both GPS systems contain dual views, Bluetooth Hands-free calling, TMC traffic info and Position Plus.
The system has a high contrast touch-screen display to see your position and route.
It's a device that is less then one inch thick. The device sticks to your dash using a super suction cup, which keeps it stable while driving.
The GPS system gives spoken and visual directions. "Whether typing in your destination using the on-screen keyboard or searching by name or category, the system's graphic interface uses simple icons and touch screen buttons that make navigation easy," writes Sony on its Web site.
Two more features make this, the nav-u portable satellite navigation system, worth looking into:
1. There's an intelligent rerouting option that recalculates your route if you make a wrong turn.
2. There's a "Home" command which instantly directs you to your home address.
