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 have purchased LN735. It is what I really wanted to have. The speech and the graphic are so clear to make me drive without any confusing. Most of all, the machine is very thin for easy-carrying. I can use it while I am taking a walk where I am not familiar with while I travel for fun or business. (but, the battery last max. 3 hours without recharging. It may be one defect that I found.) However, I don't regret. I can highly recommend.

Summary: I tried LG LN 735 from Southern California to San Francisco driving this summer with my wife. The voice was so clear and nice in good timing. Since I had tried Garmin on the same route before, I and my wife were so pleased with this LG product. She drove around Los Angeles, where she was not familier at all because we are from Tampa, Florida. She told me this machine is the smartest she ever had.
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: This is a nice little unit that does the job, but has some odd quirks. The text-to-speech engine is generally good but will sometimes hilariously mangle street names. Not just long complicated ones like you'd expect, but relatively mundane names as well. The list of Points of Interest is incomplete - some major chains of restaurants simply don't exist to it, yet tiny hole-in-the-wall establishments are constantly found.
