"Very poor product! Map outdated, very poor tech support"

  • Pros: Over all face size decent
  • Cons: No updates. Tech support gave me 4 different answers when asked about prod. updates. Map way out of date. Voice signals too low. Colour screens far too faded.

Good unit until you want to update the maps.

D. Gonzalez "San Fran driver", Amazon

  • 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. Unit works ok, until you have to update the maps....not possible.

LG's income insurance plan

  • Summary: Generally speaking this GPS performs pretty well. My main complaint would be that it was bought in 2009, showed up with 2006 maps installed, and LG wants $100 to upgrade to the current maps. So ignore the price tag if you want a GPS with current maps, because LG's going to charge you $100 extra for that luxury.

Horrible GPS and worse customer service

N. P. Andre "nixnax", Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: Bought this GPS, which came with an outdated 2006 map.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. DO NOT, DO NOT buy an LG GPS!!! Do not buy an LG products.

LG LN740

Overstock
24 July 2009
  • 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. This is not overstocks issue but I think that people should know before they buy the product that LG will change them money to undate there unit.

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

Walter Kneis, Amazon

  • 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. When I took a trip to Pennsylvania last week, I found that the unit was directing me to exits, and would then "lose" the roadway, makeing it look as though we were driving off the road, as the highway system had been recently modified.
