  • Summary: Attention - LIVE Full Europe doesn't mean that you will find maps of Poland for example :( As far I didn't realize that my country is not in Europe :) But about the product - it is easy to use - and very intuitive - I like it. Battery is living quite long without charging - even in my old used one.

  • 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.

740 is a good sat nav but maps slightly disappointing

julieannk..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: I bought the tom tom go 740 live as i make regular trips to Gosport from North West Scotland. Initial setup of the device was simple, i did not have to look at the manual once. I really liked the design and the larger 4.3" screen size. It comes with a usb docking for charging/updating on pc/laptop, a windscreen mount and an in-car charger. Also comes with setup cd but i just downloaded Tom Tom home application via internet.
  • Pros: Display, Design, Windscreen mount
  • Cons: Voice command function, Tom Tom maps, Price

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.

tom tom go 740

Kevin Beazley, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: Nice size, good clear picture. Switches off when warm sometimes immeadiatly resarts other times simply locks up. Audio great when using tom tom, however link it to your phone and sound drops off 50% also if receiving instructions whilst on the phone the client on the end of the phone keeps getting interference with what can only be described as beeps. would be nice unit but for the switching off and phone sound level loss.

Poor customer service from TomTom

Mike Casa, Amazon
26 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought the TomTom Go740 Live just before Christmas. As a stand alone SatNav unit it is fine. The Live services though are erratic & mostly don't work and the level of support TomTom give for this is next to useless. TomTom customer service is hard to contact and as they were unable to solve my problem they seem to have just stopped responding.

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.
