I know on my factory toyota nav once you get above about 3mph it turns just about all the nav buttons off.

Thanks.
I may be wrong but I don't think any auto manufacture enables you to input GPS info while you are moving except the ones that offer voice commands.

Of course there may be hacks or bypass kits for the ones in the Jeep.

That's true and for me most of the time that's all I need. There are time however that it would be nice to look for that eating place without pulling over.

Re: 730N - RER upgrade to 730N - RHR

Prior to my WK2 i used a Garmin Nuvi. When I put in my order i ordered the 730N because the dealer didn't know the difference between the two. I was upset to the point that I almost canceled my orded.

Now that I have the 730N, i'm quite happy with the Harmon Nav. One thing that i didn't know until I used it was the integration with EVIC. The 730N will tell you in advance, and more importantly, right as the turn comes up, I mean right there. This was something that my Nuvi never did well.

So for me it's as good if not better as the 430N, especially since I don't have to take my eyes off the road to look at the NAV. It's a quick glance down at the EVIC or through the speakers. Voice command is a real nice plus. Give it a chance... you'll be happy with it I'm sure.

My wifes honda civic lets you do everything while driving. I wish they all did it that way!

My 255w garmin stand alone gives voice commands, tells you what lane to get in, and exactly when to turn all by voice. You never even actually have to look at the GPS. I am hoping, and expect, the 430N will work the same way.

I see no reason why it wouldn't do the same or better.

730N tells you all the moves you have to do ... however I have disabled this feature. It also has the following nice features that I got to try:
1) if you are in radio mode, you get half the screen with navigation
2) if you get to an intersection automatically shows the half screen ...
3) shows you the turn by turn in evic
4) The voice command is great ... you don't need to bother with input on screen ... if you want to go home, just, "destination entry-> destination by name->home"

Most of the inputs are available while driving ... it does not allow you to input complex operations like street by name ...

I had a garmin before, and I do not find Harmon inferior in any way shape or form ... it is a great navigation unit .... I would not choose 430N over 730N ... I hear 430N is better integrated with Ipod, however I do not have an ipod ... I guess 730N integration with ipod is fine as well ...

Re: 730N - RER upgrade to 730N - RHR

You know, I can't find a Harmon GPS that is newer than 2006 or 2007 anywhere...

http://www.harmankardon.com/en-US/Pages/home.aspx

Of course Garmin appears to be heavily invested in GPS...

The OEM vehicle solutions and the aftermarket standalone devices are two VERY different markets, and until now, makers were really only playing in one or the other. The OEM makers who made standalone devices were really not taking that market seriously at all- once you got outside Magellan, Garmin, and TomTom, everything else was an also-ran. OEM-wise, the makers need only to sell it to a few people at an automaker, not to the public at large, so they were made more for integration into the vehicle, not so much competing on ease of use and accuracy of routing.

If you will go back and read the post you will see that I wan't comparing the 430 and 730 but the in dash garmin vs a stand alone garmin unit.

Which implies that the big 3 are likely both more accurate and easier to use...
