430n or 730n?

I am selling my 2011 rubicon with the 430n in it and bought a 2012 rubicon that had the 730n in it...(long story short it was a good enough deal on both vehicles that while costing me more was worth it for the increase in power).

Anyway, I didn't realize how different these two systems are and I'm looking for opinions from experience on which is the better unit, one would think the 730n is best as it costs significantly more and is a higher model, but...

Pros on the 430n as I see it:
-more than twice the free space of the 730n
-cleaner interface, garmin etc just looks better
-my new text message notification worked where it doesn't on the 730n

Pros on the 730n as I see it:
-recording of trails in nav, essentially bread crumbs
-full voice command in nav unlike the limited voice commands of the 430n
-weather and traffic on Sirius on the 730n plus stuff like movie showtimes etc as well


I feel like the pros of the 730n are just fluff aside from the bread crumb / trail recording ability which let's be honest, I will rarely use this as I would mostly be on well marked trails when off roaring, likely only rarely going so far out as to make use of that...I'm losing well over 10gbs of music storage space and the nav interface looks archaic by comparison.

Am I missing something? Opinions?

I have an '11 RER in my '07 and the missus has the RHB in her '11. They are indeed different. The RHB is a lot simpler to use as far as music origanizing. And you can edit the info while listening to it. I miss that. The GPS is quite different, but I can live with it.
