NVU70 Sony Portable GPS Satellite Navigation


The NV-U70 comes preloaded with detailed street maps of the 48 contiguous United States. You'll find maps of Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and Puerto Rico on the included DVD-ROM; you simply upload them on the NV-U70 from your computer via the included USB cable.

You'll find the vivid, 3.5" screen easy to read, even in bright sunlight. It shows you exactly where you are, tells you what your next move is going to be, and helps you find local services in unfamiliar towns. To choose a destination, you simply use the touchscreen controls to select a street address, intersection, or one of the millions of points of interest, like restaurants, hotels, and more.

If you miss a turn, the NV-U70 will recalculate your route automatically. If you come up on a traffic jam, hit the "Block Road" command on the touchscreen, and the NV-U70 will find you a new route. For easy viewing, a light sensor automatically switches the screen from day to night mode when the sun goes down. And pressing the "Take Me Home" button tells the system to find the best route back to your home from your current location.
