If anybody is wondering about this company, Ray first posted a 'Deal' for them back in May 2005:-

John Lewis seem to have cleared their stock of these now - this looks like a good price. Firmware upgrades are available to allow full postcode searches now, and the Sony website is promising updated maps this month - here

Where can you get the firmware upgrade to allow full postcodes from?

Postcode support is on version 1.06 Which I can't seem to find anywhere

does anybody know if it comes with the mount/stand for the car?
#8
ordered one to replace my handheld/tomtom one... lets see...

You can always exercise your rights under the DSR and send the item back, if it fails to meet your expectations.
#10
If your unit comes with 1.05, then you can’t install 1.06. I had a huge saga with this, and an argument with Sony about it. In the end I took it back.

Good deal though, providing you get 1.06.
#11
I had 1.06 but accidently updated/copied 1.05 from the sony website - if anyone could backup there 1.06 should be about 200Mb on to a CD or a ftp site please contact me as I would very greatful to get my system back to 1.06
#12
Shipping is 4.95 - any way to avoid this?
#13
it does not say that the map update will be free or not.... just a warning....

You need version 1.06 for full postcode search which Sony have stated in the past they will NOT be making available as an upgrade. Its pot luck if yours comes with 1.06 or 1.05
#15
Apparently u can run tomtom on this unit. :thumbsup:

OK - thanks for the info, and sorry if my previous post was misleading - it was based on a half remembered discussion from a few months ago.........
#17
Can this be plugged into the ciggy lighter or anything as 4 hour battery life is pretty feable.
#18
ack, too late - it's showing as out of stock now :(
#19
Came with 1.05 - Anyone know if an upgrade to 1.06 is possible at all?

The reason's because Sony haven't made version 1.06 available and I'm not sure if they will ever release it to download.

The only way you can get this version is if you're fortunate enough to receive the unit with this version installed.

It might be possible however, for someone who has got 1.06 to backup their unit using the sync program and for you to use that backup and restore it to your unit.

I don't know whether that will work

I have just checked the sony website and it seems like they are charging £42.00 for the UK+Ireland map update

Back in stock at Valutech, £10 higher now.
