V7 Nav740

tomgofly, Ebay
15 November 2010
  • Summary: I've had one for a while now. They were made in 2007 and there were never any map updates. V7 has not supported the Nav740 for a few years now, and the battery shows it's age as well. The battery was never very good and only lasted about 20min when new, but I just keep mine plugged into the car all the time anyway. The voice is ok, but I usually keep mine on mute. The media player is a bit out dated, but I think there is a way to load in a 3rd party player.

Decent Windows CE based GPS

Morgan, Amazon
29 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this when it was available for under $100 in order to test out what could be done with it as a Windows CE device. It's Nav capabilities seem reasonable compared to my Garmin Nuvi. The real value was in the ability to usurp it's Auto Navigation capabilities and use it for installing XCSoar onto as a flight computer. Not something your typical user is going to do, but V7 didn't do anything to prevent that. Nice plus in my book.

NAV 740 GPS

Jon H, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: This GPS device is just okay for the price of less than 100.00. The main issues that I have with it are: 1) The battery does not last very long at all. 2) It takes a long time to acquire satellites, but once it does you generally maintain a strong signal. 3) I have seen better software interfaces on other devices. The map page does not show speed or direction of travel when in the view heading mode.

Hard (impossible?) to input route of your choosing

James B. Walker, Amazon
15 September 2008
  • Summary: I tried to input some changes to the route the GPS suggested, and it was nearly impossible to alter the route. I wanted to stay on an interstate and the software sent me down local roads with lots of stop lights and turns that eventually got me to the same place.

Don't throw away the map

Daisey, Amazon
23 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought this because it can also play movies which is cool when you have 200 or more miles til the next off ramp. Comes with AC,DC and window mount. The units map impressed me because it had My Parents street and Map Quest on the internet did not. It helped us getting out of vegas when I missed the exit. It is spastic at times and has to reboot now and again. So keep your paper Map for study prior the trip.
