Overrated - overpriced

General Leo, Amazon
2 December 2009
  • Summary: First off, this unit takes FOREVER to connect. It can be anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes before it picks up a signal. The maps are horribly outdated and I can't find any information on the whole internet about how to update them. The interface is clunky.

no good DO NOT BUY THIS

  • Summary: I got this gps two years ago, although it will work pretty well for a while , it will start tofreeze and you will have to reset it and lose all stored info in order for it to work again. But the main reason not to buy it is YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANY UPDATES, Even if you talk to a service rep from LG.

Value leader until Garmin lowers prices

N. McWilliams, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought this unit after experiencing the frustrations of using a rental Garmin carnav that did not have text-to-speech capability. Just try to navigate DC's traffic circles with the instructions of "turn right in 200 feet"....yes, but which right turn?

Great GPS - Exceeded expectations

J. Kao, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: After reading mixed reviews I decided to give this unit a try. Coming from a Lowrance Iway 500c, I was looking for the newer sirfstar III receiver as well as faster routing and quicker satellite acquisition. The LG excelled at all three.

LG enters navigation market well

Tim, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: The LG LN740 is a great product. This is the first navigation device that I have owned, but I truly love it. The large screen makes it easy to read and the menu system is easy to navigate. The directions are clear and precise.

Good unit for the $, UNTIL you want to update!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the LN740 for my wife about a year ago, and we've been generally pleased with the features and performance, particularly given the low cost - that is, until I tried to update the installed maps.

Horrible GPS and worse customer service

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: Bought this GPS, which came with an outdated 2006 map. When trying to update, we were informed by LG that we needed to purchase a new map for $100. Again, this came preinstalled with an OLD map and now they want us to purchase. All other companies allow you to download the new maps for free.

Listen to its voice before buying.

B. Karimov, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I own this GPS for a few weeks. Bought it because of very good reviews and value. This is what I don't like based on my short expirience. The most important: Voice sounds very distorted. It's like listening to radio without fine tuning.

Complete Junk - Don't Waste Your Money!

Jo, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I tried to update the 2006 software. Customer service had no idea how to do that and bounced my call around from person to person. I finally gave up. More recently, my GPS stopped working. It cannot locate any satellites and my map is frozen someplace in New York (I've never been there).

Good and bad

Matt, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought this unit when it first came out, because it has the TMC (FM traffic update) built in and a 4-inch screen for much less than the Garmin. Before this I bought the TOMTOM One. Overall, this unit has been good. It does what the box says it does... But here are my improvements... 1.
