Pros: Usually plots fastest route but so will any GPS or google maps on my Droid.
Cons: Sometimes sends me on a wild goose chase on a rural mountain USFS road shortcut! Frequently crashes for no reason. Looses my saved favorite locations every time I update my map! Small rural roads or Forest Service roads may not be in the database.
Pros: Maps are decent Lane guidance is good for an LA newbie
Cons: Device randomly reboots then makes me accept the terms and conditions again Bluetooth will not maintain a connection with my iPhone after power on/off over several days. No changes made during the time UI is inconsistent and has gotten CRAPPY!
Pros: Mapping is great, recalculation is great. Non computer voices are MUCH better than any other manufacturer's product.
Cons: No mention of Bluetooth in entire booklet. Only one sentence on the box . No hands free dialing. You have to take your eyes off the road to punch buttons on dash or windshield to make a call!! Computer voices are terrible compared to the Garmin
Summary: I purchased this unit 2 June and as always with Amazon it arrived within a few days, however this 740 was bought as the previous 730T started showing wrong speed limits which could not be changed except to 1 mph either side of the actual limit ie speed limit of 40 would only show 39 or 41. Very annoying.
Summary: I live in Central London and have found that the device has problems positioning you in high rise areas. My previous GPS a 'Mio' I bought for £80 a few years ago coped much better. Also the map is full of errors. I purchased the latest version v830.2305, but I still regularly have to correct mistakes.
Unzuverlässig, HD Traffic nicht aktuell, nie mehr TomTom

Summary: Ich fahre nun seit sieben Monaten mit dem Gerät und kann folgendes berichten: Sehr gut: Die Halterung funktioniert schnell und zuverlässig. Schnelle Routenführung. Sehr schlecht: Ich hatte durch eine Sonderaktion sechs Monate lang den HD-Traffic Service, der einen immer schnell und zuverlässig an Staus und durch den Verkehr führen soll.
Pros: sichere Halterung an der Scheibe, schneller Start und schnelle Streckenermittlung
