Summary: When the unit was received it appeared to be very good. Delivery time was faster than expected. When I started useing the unit I found that the MP3 player portion did not work correctly. It would freeze or not work at all. Also, the headphone output was intermittant.
Summary: The visual part of the Tom Tom is OK, the audio part especially in Canada is terrible. It sound s as if someone has marbles. The auto adapter keeps falling out. It is nearly impossible to palce it on the dash because of a such short mount. I have a Garmin Nuvi that is much easier to use.
Summary: I've been using Garmin GPS devices for 10 years (SP500,SP550, LEGEND, SP3 Colormap). TomTom offers a more customizable screen which I find very useful. The user interface is decent but a return to map button would save tedious effort back stepping.
Summary: 4.0 out of 5 stars One problem, November 24, 2008
By radman "radman2020" (USA) - See all my reviews
I have the 720. The 730 has only minor improvements once you update the 720...so I thought I would tell about one feature that is a problem...
Summary: The directions, ease of use and excellent routing give this product 3 stars. The reason for not having 5 is the occasional need for a paper-clip hard reset. The unit will lockup from time-to-time, we will lose voice routing or sometimes not shut-off all leading to a hard reset.
Summary: I bought the 730 about 2 1/2 weeks ago. Been using it since. First impression of the tomtom 730 was this gps looks & feel very nice. very well designed but the initial power on language was not english.
Summary: Overall, I really like the 730. However, I ended up returning mine to Circuit City and biting the 15% restock fee because of a few serious flaws (see cons section). Pros: - Extremely fast interface response. You tap a button on the screen, and it switches screens instantly. - Very fast routing.
Good Sat Nav - Disappointing integration with mobile phone

Summary: This is an OK sat nav. Having to buy updated maps for a brand new device in order to take advantage of future map updates is a complete rip off. Wireless integration for the purposes of data connection failed with a Nokia N85 (hardly an obscure mobile phone. Quite a disappointment.
