    Right now I have a Garmin c330 & looking to upgrade to a newer one. I went to CircuitCity & saw a Sony GPS. Looked nice with a nice 4.3 inch screen, similar to a Garmin Nuvi.

    Sony NV-U73T

    Garmin nuvi 260w

    Anyone have a Sony GPS? Does it work well? Only thing I wish Garmin did was put a clock on the screen, which the Sony does.

    if you need a new gps and you don't want to go for a double-din integrated unit, then just get a tomtom.

    Get a Garmin.
    Fastest processors
    6 Million POI
    260W has the 4.3" with Text-To-Speech

    Sonys are junk.
    TomToms break.
    Magellans stop charging.
    Mio is garbage.
    Navigon is a crock of shit.

    I've got an old Garmin (Black and white) that I still use. I love the Garmin product and how they don't just hang you out to dry when their latest greatest model comes out. Their 2009 maps still work on a GPS made back in the 1999 era. Just my 2 cents.

    Think I'm going to buy the Garmin nuvi 205W. I don't care about text to speech. That or something a little more expensive.

    Another reality apparently
