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.
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).
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 The maps are horribly outdated and I can't find any information on the whole internet about how to update them.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.
Summary: I bought this unit and now I constantly get a "signal is too low" warning, when driving in the same areas where I didn't have this problem before. Called LG customer service and was advice they don't service this model any more and referred me to a 3rd party repair for assistance.
Summary: I have the July 2008 map upgrade for sale only $39.99. The factory sells them for $99.00 plus shipping. All LN740's are sold new with only the 2006 map. Shipping is included. You will receive the 2008 map upgrade and an instruction sheet for only $39.99. Just email me. I accept PayPal.
Summary: Bought this GPS, which came with an outdated 2006 map.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.
Summary: I got this unit from overstock about a year ago. It has worked as it should the only down side is the Maps on the unit are from 2006 and if you want to get updates from LG it will cost you $99.
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.
Summary: Excellant Condition, all accessories included. Menu, easy to use. I especially like the feature for extra memory card accessable. Voice very clear, graphics very clear, compact system, and added feature of car or walking/bicycling usable.
