Conclusion: The TomTom GO 720 resides between the top-of-the-line GO 920 and 920T, and the more basic ONE XLS . The ONE XLS is a fine choice, but if you want higher end features such as a customizable status bar (six variables, such as remaining time, remaining distance, etc.), an optional remote control, a document viewer for guidebooks and language dictionaries, an MP3 player, picture viewer, and more, you can step up to the 720.
Pros: Solid high-end feature set with some fun extras., TomTom MapShare and HOME software / online link help keep maps current., Options such as an iPod connect cable and a remote control.
Cons: Do you want or need a photo viewer in your GPS? Probably not.
Summary: The TomTom GO 720 delivers with sleek looks, good performance, and a full set of features that includes a map-sharing function for the most up-to-date maps and a helpful safety tool.
Pros: The TomTom GO 720 includes new features that give you access to up-to-date maps and safety information in case of emergencies. The sleek 720 also offers text-to-speech functionality, integrated Bluetooth, and multimedia capabilities.

Excerpt: The TomTom 720 GPS has features important to me. I shopped around and this GPS has features generally reserved for high-priced devices. It is Bluetooth enabled and has the ability to run Sirius Satellite Radio. The option for Sirius cost only $10 if purchased at the buy for the TomTom 720. The Siirius subscription costs roughly $13 per month, but well worth it for road trips. The TomTom 720 has maps of the U.S. and Canada pre-installed.
Excerpt: The TomTom GO 720 is a solid product introduction that offers not only some feature improvements, but some innovative steps that shows TomTom positioning itself as an innovator in the GPS marketplace. TomTom is not afraid to step up and maintain its position in the upper echelon of GPS manufacturers.
