LG LN740 Review


PC Mag has a review up of the new LG LN740 GPS navigation system. LG announced their new GPS units at CES 2007 earlier this year. The large electronics firm, is trying hard with a full line of flat nicely designed units, with the LG LN740 solidly placed as a mid-range GPS with text-to-speech (TTS) that helps define the middle road these days. The unit sports the cost of doing business high sensitivity receiver from SiRF; the SiRF star III chipset. This will help hold onto signals in tougher reception situations.

PC Mag seems to like the unit overall, and talks up several of the features, including the traffic capabilities, and the larger 4 inch screen (not 4.3 inch screen that is seen on most other widescreen models). The unit's text to speech capability appears solid, and it can do multi-segment routing, but the messy TMC antenna is a bit of a miss.
