I have the 130 system and would love to upgrade to one of those, I was waiting for them to come out.

Any price info/

If it were me I would probably opt for the 730.
Buying as a option for a new purchase.

I believe the 730 will be phased out as of Nov.2010. The 430 will be the offering for Overlands.

Re: Media Center 730 or 430(RBZ)

I could have gotten either but after studying the features I chose the 430N. I wanted the Garmin and I liked being able to use an external USB drive. If I could have gotten the new 730N RHR I probably would have; however I have not seen a good list of features for that media center so I can't say for sure. One thing I do like about the 730N RER is that it comes with Sirius Travel which would be a good thing to have if you travel a lot in large cities. I do mostly driving in the country and smaller cities. I really don't see why they didn't offer that with the 430N, or at least the capability to if you wanted to add it. Must be a hard thing to do because they don't even have travel link working yet on the 430N.

Having directions displayed on the evic is totally worth the upgrade to the 730. Because when you.... Ahem.... Your passengers are watching a DVD you still get visual turn instructions even while the DVD is playing. Or if you just happen to be on the Sirius or regular radio screens. It allows you to do other things without having to go to the nav page for turn directions.

Re: Media Center 730 or 430(RBZ)

Yes the 430N absolutely gives nav direction on the EVIC, but that is not the best feature in my opinion. If you are using the Garmin nav you can still listen to the radio or play cd etc., and if a turn comes up the voice system takes over and the radio stops and your lane change or turn directions are given over the speakers. To me this is more important than seeing it in the EVIC. If I am using the Nav then that means I am going somewhere I haven't been before, and I really don't want to take my eyes off the road. The voice instructions allow me to do that without having to stop the radio manually. The 430N Nav unit stops all other sound coming from the speakers and tells me when to turn, and then goes right back to playing whatever I was listening to.

I would think 730N will do the same (silence radio)

Just curious. If you are on the interstate with 2 or more lanes, does the 730N give voice lane change directions if you are approaching a turn?

No, the 730N does NOT do lane guidance or 3D junction view- I do not know if the 430N does, but those are features Garmin uses in other standalone units.
