Sony Gps Features Real-Time Traffic Data

by Paul Strauss

The NV-U71T is Sony’s latest entry into the portable GPS navigation arena.

Sony NV-U71T GPS Navigation System

The new model is their first to feature a RDS-TMC traffic receiver which provides real-time traffic data and can automatically plot an alternative course around heavy traffic areas. The traffic data costs $4.95 per month after an initial 90-day free trial.

The device’s 2GB of flash memory comes comes preloaded with maps for the U.S. (including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico) as well as Canada. Directions are displayed on a 3.5″ color touch-screen display with a voice-guided option for safety. It’s also more compact than Sony’s previous model, and features a new gesture-based input system that makes it easier to get to frequently used commands.

The NV-U71T lists for $499.95 USD and should ship by the end of 2006.

    Between myself and a few friends, we own a myriad of gps unit,
    chartplotters, and fishfinders. All of us have noticed the lousy
    visibility of these units when trying to view them in direct sunlight.
    One of my buddies stumbled across a gps accessories
    site that offers sun visors (or shades if you will) specifically made
    for these units. I have purchase several of these for my units and can
    tell you that they definetly help quite a bit. I don’t suppose there’s
    a perfect solution for this problem, but if anyone knows of one, let me
