Comments about Sony Sony NV-U73T 4.3'' Portable Navigation System:

I just bought the Sony U73T GPS/Navigation system from a local Radio Shack store. I walked in the store without a clue about GPS system. I didn't consult anyone nor read reviews online. I just want an easy use GPS system, so that I would not stop at random places to ask for directions from strangers. It's so ashamed to ask directions even from stranger who does not speak much English, except with finger pointing when you show a piece of paper with directions on it. When I got the U73T Sony, I was excited and happy to try it out. But, when I set it up and read to go, I was disappointed. It took forever to start going. Once it started, I can't tell you how I was so frustrated. It's like a lazy cow that doesn't want to move or stand up. I grew on the farm and I tell you that device is probably the laziest cow I've seen in my life. The point is that it's really slow and it doesn't seem to know where it is going. Its like a blind man leading a blind man. My girlfriend's dog knows directions and follow instructions better than this device. You know it's pretty expensive, but I find it so mad off to use. Don't buy it. This is from a guy who gets lost even coming back to his house.

Comments about Sony Sony NV-U73T 4.3'' Portable Navigation System:

Purchased it 1-week ago. Takes me the long route home. When I deviate, tells me to turn around every 1/10 mile. Used it for directions to hospital. Took very long round about route. Probably would be good for long trips but with experience I'm having with the destinations I've tried, I'm not so sure. Will take back to store and maybe try a different brand.
