TomTom GO 730 GPS Navigator

 

A rung below TomTom's flagship GO 930, the GO 730 offers a ever-so-slightly shorter feature set, and purely superficial aesthetic color swap, in exchange for a $50 price cut. Buyers lose enhanced positioning technology and the ability to upgrade to...

Price; accurate travel time estimates; painless Bluetooth setup; quality mount; included dock and PC software; superior build quality

Weak voice input; interface could use a visual update; tricky FM transmitter; not-always-brilliant routing

the GO 730 is a perfectly reasonable middle ground between price and functionality.

Overall, the TomTom GO 730 does not seem to quite match the description of the "perfect GPS," but it certainly does not fall into the category of "beginner's choice" either. This model is great for users who have experienced other, less-featured TomTom...

TomTom GO 730 review

 

The TomTom GO 730 updates the TomTom GO 720 with several new features — advanced lane guidance (pictured above), IQ RoutesTM and voice address input. I'll delve into those a little later in the review. First, the basics…

Good device but has it's issues

 

This is the second TomTom we have, the other is a 720. The 730 is generally easy to use, and the screen is easy read and informative. I love the available voices for navigation. The spoken street names feature is so-so, as it butchers some street names...

Easy to operate, programmable voices for guidance, easy to read screen

Worthless POI search, touch screen keypad is inaccurate

Consumer review by:

Very nice device overall!

 

The device works best when you're certain that you know the exact street address of the location you are trying to reach!

Very nice device. The map color scheme makes it very easily to decipher where you're going

I do have to warn you, that once you update the device using the dock, the device may start giving you bad directions to "Point of Interests" located in its directory (gas station, library, etc.)

Consumer review by:

great size and easy to understand and use.

 

Maps are informative and easy to understand

Tomtom's can not be updated on a Linux Box even though that is the software running the device

Flawed product

 

I researched this unit for weeks before deciding to take the plunge. I have owned this product for 5 months and this is a good unit, don't get me wrong. It is top of the line and blows away the cheap GPS units. Here are my thoughts The original...

Ability to reroute around a single/multiple roads while keeping route intact ; Bluetooth ; Loud speaker ; Nice screen when you can see it ; Not as cartoonish as other brands ; Can update map corrections from other users ; Can plan multiple routes

Screen fully washes out in the southwest sun ; Tomtom software can be confusing ; Battery life when powered off is only 4 days ; Missing most necessary accessories (usable mounts, sunshade) ; POI database not very robust
