Summary: this unit is the best i have ever owned and i owned a few.this unit is live so when i select a route and there is a problem on the road ahead it will change the route for me.plus you can connect your cell for bluetooth and you can talk to it asking for the weather or select a route.can"t come up with any cons yet. plus i love tomtom better than the others.
Summary: I charged it. Unplugged it and took it on a trip the very next day and managed to learn how to use it in a few minutes. Took us right to the address we wanted. Great help in the greater Denver and surrounding areas. I won't leave home without it now!!! Gives a warning when you are getting close to a turn or if you might make a wrong veer-off exit, tells you what lane to stay in.
Summary: This is a great GPS Consumers Report was correct this is a great unit. It has Voice Recognition Blue Tooth Nice Screen size 4.3" My battery needs to be replaced I do not see any way it opens but when plugged in it works 100% The Micro Card it accepts needs to be formated they say I have had the voice turn by turn suddely turn off but it works.
Pros: Ease of Navigating, Map Features, Map Share and Map Correction, TomTom Services of fuel prices, weather, Google Search POIs, Spoken names, etc. loud enough to hear in convertible with top and windows down. Accuracy of Distances.

Pros: Google POI's Routing seems to be better than navteq (at least for me) A lot of infomation you can access and advanced lane navgation
Cons: Won't go on automaticly (when car ingniion goes on. Default setting not set for it to turn off) With Tom Tom Traffic you can't look up all of the traffic incidences when not in route. more below, complicated interface
740 is a good sat nav but maps slightly disappointing

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.
