Expert review by : Benny Har-Even (

Sony Nav-U NV-U93T


When it comes to electronic wizardry, no one does it better than Sony, so you'd be within your rights to expect its top-end sat-nav unit to be an impressive affair, and for the most part it doesn't disappoint

Very large screen / clear maps

Sluggish responses

The Sony offers full maps for 21 countries on its internal 2GB flash memory using the well regarded Navteq data, so it can live with you on the cross-country road trip
