Although Sony hasn’t been really successful in the past with it’s first GPS units the the people at Sony seem determined not to withdraw from the GPS market.
The two new models announced are the NV-U50 and the NV-U70T. The first one is the entry level unit and some of it’s features include.
- 3.5 inch touch screen
- 80 degrees viewing angle
- Preloaded maps of the UK, Ireland and Paris
- TomTom like design
- Two way speaker system
The NV-U70 has similar features but is also equipped with 1GB of RAM and Traffic support, a feature that is optional for the NV-U50.
A big plus is that is Sony is offering lifetime (of the product) Traffic support
These two new models are expected to hit the market in January 2006.
