The NV-U84 GPS device has a huge 4.8-inch wide screen and is easily viewable in direct sunlight. Position Plus makes navigating areas with spotty satellite reception more precise. The Super Suction Cup allows dashboard mounting as easily as glass mounting.
"For a device with no Bluetooth and no traffic data, the $349 price tag seems a bit high. The jumpy auto-complete system actually slows down destination entry."
"Sony has positioned the otherwise good NV-U84 GPS device in an odd spot, where it's not as good a value as the models immediately above and below it in the NAV-U lineup."

I love this GPS. It has so many features to offer and yet very simple to operate (even a third grader monkey, like myself, is able to figure this out). Nice, big screen with adjustable brightness is awelcome addition. The choice for a soft feminine female or the macho, barritone male voice are easy to understand. I'd buy it again should something happen to this one, but I'll get the NV-U94 for the blu-tooth capability.
