Summary: I bought this GPS two years ago and I have had a lot of problems with it. The first problem I had was everytime I powered it up, it showed the map somewhere in Texas. I live in AR!!! About 10-30 minutes later it would actually figure out where I was. I even reset the sats and everything. So frustrating!! Last year on vacation we were going to Orange Beach, AL and it told me to turn right on Powerline Road. This road was DIRT and had a HUGE sign that said DO NOT ENTER.
Summary: I've delt with a couple GPS systems and I must say this one is a little hard to figure out at first but once you get the hang of it your good to go. The only real conplaint I have on this unit is the battery life is really low, about 1 and a half hours.
Summary: As of today our family has 4 of these. We've been all over the country with it and as with any GPS there is a Map mistake from time to time, but we have never been lost with it. It's all in what you get used to. Our friends had a Garmen on a trip south and we had the LG, neither of us knew how to use the other as easily as our own. Overall it is a great unit. Of course there is some brand loyalty involved here too. All TV's, DVD's, and Cell Phones in our house are LG.
Summary: I purchased this product last August (8/6/07) and it has not operated properly since. It frequently freezes and many times does not even begin working. I continuously have to press the reset button to get it to unfreeze and then it doesn't start up again. This has been the most unreliable item I've ever owned. (Also, what's up with Amazon asking for your credit card info to write a product review? Shady.
Summary: I love this GPS system. it is the first I've ever used/owned, and it works wonderfully. It's fairly easy to figure out and once you do, it's a breeze to use. It came equipped with a window mount and and a dashboard mount, so you can stick it wherever you want. It also comes with a car charger with a cord long enough to place the unit almost anywhere on the front of the card. The screen is easy to understand, and it's very clear and crisp. It responds very well to touch.
Summary: Works great, so user friendly and gets me where I need to go. Very easy to set up contacts and save favorites. Also has nearby points of interest. My only complaint would be that I live on a NE street and the unit says Nebraska instead of NE....something that tech support was not able to fix.
Summary: My first GPS but I'm very happy with the features and ease of operation. My son has a Garmin and said the LG 735 has some good features the Garmin did not have. Although re-furbished it looks and performs like new. It re-calculates your route quickly. The only thing I have noticed so far is the map that came loaded on the unit does not include the very new developement areas in my town.
Summary: I just wanted you to be aware that there are no upgradeable maps as of 20 August 2008. I called LG and they dont have a software release date. It would be a great product if the maps were correct.
