Certainly worth the price

Pros: Does all the important stuff you expect to receive from many of the much pricier units. Easy to use, mostly intuitive menu and software, text to speech, sharp clear monitor.
Cons: USB cable shown in photo was not included in box.
Summary: Other Thoughts: During much initial moving around in the menus, the unit locked up on me twice and each time I had to reset. I was relieved that no data ...
Summary: Other Thoughts: During much initial moving around in the menus, the unit locked up on me twice and each time I had to reset. I was relieved that no data was lost. So far, I have no other problems during actual use. Battery life with screen on appears to be about 2 hours.
Choice of male or female voice, quick route recalculations, easy to understand manual on DVD and CD, car and AC charger included. I was particularly impressed with the satellite and altitude functions.
I occasionally travel from northern Ca. to southern Ca. and have my favorite routes, it would be nice to have the unit learn and reuse these routes, rather than selecting the fastest or shortest route.
Called tech service with an obscure difficulty with the manual on DVD, the tech was courteous, he asked around and replied with the correct fix.

Buy it only if you don't use it all the time
by aesoto82 on July 24, 2009
Pros: Clear maps, ton's of POI's, different languages, get's you where you have to go. Day / Night settings.
Cons: Extremly slow connection and I'm from NYC. For some reason it likes to take the local route. Loses reception easily. Instructional manual was useless, only spoke about a view features. Horrible battery even we "fully charged".
Summary: So I bought this Nav just to use time to time. I live in NYC so I don't really need it badly, but when I go somewhere I am ...
Summary: So I bought this Nav just to use time to time. I live in NYC so I don't really need it badly, but when I go somewhere I am not familiar with it's nice to have. Bottom line it get's the job done. I gave it 3 stars because it takes a long time to get the job done. Most of the times it makes me take a local route with tons of traffic lights even though a highway is about 5 blocks away. The battery life is horrible. You can leave it charging over night and when you turn it on, it loses 3/4 of the battery in about an hour. Getting connection is another issue. Sometimes it might take a half an hour to receive connection. What I do now is I turn it on about 30min before I leave the house. What do I do when i'm not home? I pray that it get's connection quickly.
The directions are clear, the speech although sometimes it scratchy is clear and accurate. There are tons of POI's but they were not updated ie. some "gas stations" are not there any more. Would I recommend this to a friend...no but when it works it get's the job done.
Great value at $99, but poor battery & outdated maps
by terryhutchens on January 6, 2009
Pros: Nice screen, a number of cool features, 11 million POI, finds satellites quickly
Cons: Battery lasts only 20 minutes, maps are over 2 years old and can't get them updated, isn't as good as Garmin in choosing fastest routes.
Features OK, but maps are terrible
by dabvette on October 3, 2008
Pros: Large screen, easy to use, refigures route fairly quickly.
Cons: Battery life is about 1 to 2 hours, maps are out dated, and the manufacturer wants you to buy the new maps at $100.With no guaranty that the new ones are correct! Sends you down one way roads, through dead end roads and on to dirt roads in the woods.
Summary: Spend the extra money and buy a Magellan!

This is a good product and have potential to be a perfect product.

Pros: 4.3 Screen, Expandable capability via memory card, complete screen layout and information, Video and Audio Player, Great and active technical support team, Cheap price ($160 at FRYS Electronics).
Cons: USB cable and CANADA Map not included, ASIA Map is not available.
Summary: Regardless of the CONS that was mentioned above, NAV740 model provides more features with a lower price tag compare to the other brand. The technical support team were great. They ...
Summary: Regardless of the CONS that was mentioned above, NAV740 model provides more features with a lower price tag compare to the other brand. The technical support team were great. They answer my phone calls immediately and answered my questions. If they don't have the answers at the time, they will try to get the answer from their master technician and come back to you with the answers. If you wish to e-mail the questions there response time were excellent or within allocated time frame. I just wish that the TMC is actually functioning and not just a capability/ready feature. V7 should have included the maps for CANADA now and not to charge the user later as an upgrade. In summary, NAV740 is a good product. V7 Company should rev this unit and provide more potential working features.
