"Weak battery"

hc2255, CNET
27 April 2010
  • Pros: It shows a graphic of the exit ramp to make sure you pick the correct one from multiple lane choices. Live data is nice. Bluetooth speaker phone works great.
  • Cons: Battery lasts 2 hours maybe so I tend to just turn it off when on the 100 mile stretch of the trip. Costs 3x more than my laptop GPS (Delorme) and the only thing better is the portability.

"Live traffic updates rock!"

  • Pros: The live traffic updates are a huge lifesaver!
  • Cons: The bluetooth setup was a bit flaky, but I blame that on bluetooth, not Tom Tom :)

Tomtom Go 740 live GPS

demandon, REVIEW STREAM
13 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Tomtom Go 740 live is not just a GPS, instead has a lot of features and wireless connectivity embedded to a GPS. In contrast with other models I have seen from Tomtom , Go 740 live tends to be more refined and high end. In my opinion this is futuristic compared with other GPS models and a lot innovative features are there like blue tooth calling with voice command; so it gets easy while driving.

  • Summary: i bought this unit around 4 years ago and was a great investment for me as i was travelling all over the place the lane arrows are great, especially when driving in Birmingham in the rush hour! after 2 years the battery stopped holding it's charge which is rather annoying, so i can no longer use it out of the car and also it doesn't accept a charge when plugged in at home. i don't travel as much these days, so don't use the LIVE link, but at the time it was great.

TomTom Go 740 Live: TomTom 740 gets you there - at a cost

fabme10, Dooyoo
30 July 2010
  • Summary: The Tomtom go live is more than an average sat nav system, it is multi functional which is an advantage if you're in the car a lot. It has blue tooth connectivity so you can link you're mobile phone to the system and use your sat nav as a hands free system. The TomTom also allows you to upload you're mobile phone contacts on to it's system so when someone rings you there name will appear on the system.
  • Pros: Clear pictures, good directions and easy to personalise
  • Cons: It comes at a cost per month and regular map updates come at a high cost as well

Tomtom 740 Has it's faults

Dugyfresh, Amazon
27 August 2009
  • Summary: This is my second TomTom, the 740 is a good improvement on my XL However it has some faults, when connected to my mobile for hands free use On answering a call the voice can hardly be heard from the 740, there is no way Of turning the volume up. Voice control can be misread and you have to remember the commands Or it won't work Traffic reports can be way off time and inaccurate Good points, lane guidance is good, you can still see the screen in bright sunlight.

NOT 'FULL' EUROPE

S. Maloney, Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: ** Please read bottom of this review as have had contact with TomTom since writing ** I received this item for my birthday and was initially pleased with the product. I moved to central Europe recently and was particularly interested in travel through Greece & Turkey. First problem, Greece is not considered one of the maps given in this 'full Europe' edition. Secondly both Turkey and Greece maps are not available to download for this unit.

Go 740 Live

D. J. Cook, Amazon
12 January 2009
  • Summary: Having previously owned a 500 series TomTom, I was expecting great things from the new live service models. My wife bought me the 740 for Christmas but I'm unimpressed. My principal gripe is the HD Traffic Service which has, so far, failed to warn me of a number of major problems, including the recent closure of the M25 in both directions. Even though the motorway had been closed for several hours, the device was keen to route me straight into the problem.

GPS sehr ungenau, ständige Abstürze...

S. Vladimir, Amazon
30 October 2009
  • Summary: Fahre 12000-15000 KM im Monat. Das Gerät stürzt am Tag 3-4 Mal ab und startet dann neu. GPS sehr ungenau. In dichten Wohngebieten wie z.B Berlin verliert das Gerät die Position und braucht eine Zeit bis es wieder auf der richtigen Spur ist. Das einzigste Plus Punkt ist für mich Google womit ich alles mögliche in der Nähe oder in der Nähe des Ziels finden kann. Das Tomtom XL war für mich eindeutig besser. Vielleicht ist es auch defekt. Evtl.
