Electronics company Sony is introducing its new range of slim-line, wide-screen nav-u personal navigation devices - the NV-U93T, NV-U83, NV-U73T and NV-U53.

According to the company, the NV-U93T and the NV-U83 include Bluetooth technology to enable hands-free calling. Both models feature a high-brightness, ultra-wide 4.8" screen with auto-dimmer which adjusts brightness by sensing sunlight. The NV-U93T is equipped with a pan-European map and includes Traffic Message Channel (TMC) which monitors real-time broadcasts of information on traffic hold-ups for dynamic re-routing in the event of traffic delays (optional in NV-U83). Both models also include POSITION plus which assists the driver in uninterrupted routing when GPS signals are temporarily compromised.

The NV-U73T and the NV-U53 reportedly feature a larger, high-brightness, 4.3" wide screen with anti-glare. The NV-U73T features Traffic Message Channel and European map, while the NV-U53 comes pre-installed with the user's country map.

All four models include Sony-designed flexible Super-Suction Cup, which offers on-dash mount or windscreen placement, and Gesture Command, which enables the users to choose a frequent destination by drawing a line or a shape on the screen with their fingertip, the company said.

U53/U73 models will be available in the UK and Ireland from November 2007. The U83/U93 models will be available from January 2008. No pricing details were disclosed.
