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: Got this to replace my aging Tomtom One. The TT one was fine in most situations but it couldn't handle complex freeway junctions in many US states. Instructions to 'take the exit' when there are 4 to choose from wasn't very helpful. Pros: - I like the 3D display.
Summary: I had a Tomtom Go 700 for a while and as both my wife and I needed a GPS unit, I opted to get another Tomtom... the Go 730. The unit works wll for most things, the screen is clear and easy to read, I have not had any issues with bright sunlight and it has a full feature set.
Summary: So I got this unit because I absolutely LOVED my TomTom 340S. I liked it so much that I figured I'd update and give the 340 to my wife. This unit is actually pretty good, but there are a few things that are turning me off about it now. 1.) The screen is not nearly as bright as the 340S.
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.
