Bought this unit last week and found it to be great. Read a couple of reviews that rated it 'poor' but they appeared to be written by Garmin employees. All the 'complaints' listed have not proven to be true. The touch screen is very sensitive, mapping seems to be about the same as the last 5 gps' that I have purchased (including 3 Garmins) with the addition of text to verbal which is way better on the Sony. Will continue to test out this unit over the next several weeks on travel but so far, I'd rate it at least a 4 out of 5 stars.

LOL. Well, keep me posted. It would be nice to have a review from an actual user than garmin employees. :)
