"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 :)

  • 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 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.

ich habs wieder retour geschickt!

A. Lanzinger "faullancer", Amazon
10 September 2009
  • Summary: Um es vorweg zu sagen, ich habs wieder zurück geschickt. Ich hatte es gesamt 4 Tage im Außendienst- Einsatz und bin doch sehr enttäuscht. Nicht nur, dass die optische Aufbereitung der Daten nicht sehr ansprechend ist, auch im Detail gibt es klare Mängel. Bluetooth-zwar wurde mein Samsung Handy erkannt, dannach stürzte es aber bei Rufannahme regelmäßig während des Gesprächs ab, wie gesagt jedesmal !! Die Spracheingabe funktioniert gut, aber bei einer Routeneigabe, best.

geringer interner Speicher

KMH, Amazon
31 August 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe das Navi TomTom Go 740 live am 8.7.2009 bei Amazon.de erworben. In der Vergangenheit hatte ich die Geräte TomTom Go 910, 920, und 930 im Betrieb. Technische Details lasse ich aus, dazu findet man ausreichende Informtionen bei Amazon.de und dem Hersteller. Die Displaygröße ist in Ordnung, die sonstigen Funktionen überzeugen. Die Live-Funktion funktioniert gut und zügig. Eine TMC-Antenne ist nicht im Umfang enthalten.
