How To Buy the Right GPS


LG Electronics, a company probably best known for its mobile phones, flat-panel displays, and high-end home appliances, previewed a new line of portable navigation devices (PNDs) at CES in January. I was lucky enough to check out the company's current...

Large 4-inch screen. Supports text-to-speech conversion in three languages. Built-in traffic receiver. Able to do multisegment routing. Estimated 6-hour battery life.

LG Portable Navigator LN740 Review


LG's new GPS line looked more promising than most, as the deep-pocketed company spent big bucks developing their own hardware & software rather than outsourcing both to the lowest bidders. Can LG compete with Garmin, Magellan, and TomTom in the...

Product Specifications

The 4-inch display and slim design of the LG LN740 provide a brilliant and easy-to-read map display while maintaining a high level of portability for simple transport among multiple family vehicles. Its brilliant display also automatically changes from "day mode" to "night mode" for clear visual recognition in any lighting condition. With its turn-by-turn text-to-speech voice guidance, its highly accurate pre-loaded map with millions of POIs, access to traffic data service via a supplied RDS-TMC antenna as well as photo and music file playback, navigation, information and entertainment are more accessible than ever.
