Thanks.


Thought I had looked at every option, will look again.

seanpholman I haven't found a way to defeat it in settings... Maybe I am missing something, but I write about cars for a living and this is one of my big frustrations on the 430N.

As for the split screen on the 730N, the option is in the settings menu.

Sean are you sure this can't be turned off? I have this radio in our 2011 GC and I don't recall it zooming in at the turns. I will have to watch it more closely it could be I just never noticed it

Could be. The 730 is not that intuitive.

seanpholman I hate the 430N (lots of experience with it). It is frustrating to use (I really dislike how it zooms in at every turn), the display resolution is less, and the maps show less detail. It also doesn't show weather or traffic, just the 5-day forecast. There is a way to put Garmin waypoints in it however, and I do like the way is shows speed limits.

I bought the 730N for the better maps, live traffic, higher resolution display and the fact that is has dead reckoning, something else lacking on the 430N. The 730N also allows a split screen of the radio and map screens. Overall it is a better nav system in my mind and worth the extra money.

And yes, the Lock Pick can be used with a 730N or 430N to add a camera.

tomthbomb To be honest if I could go back to square one and order again, knowing what I know now, I would get the 430 instead of the 730. That is with my missing mic excepted (they WILL fix that).
11-25-2011 10:55 PM
Shireman Sounds good. I am going to stick with the 430 and order the lock pick v4 I believe.

You can add a rear camera with Lockpick. I have a 2011 GC with the 430N and it has a rear camera which is great for hooking up a trailer as well as the standard reasons like not running over the kids etc. I ordered the 430N on my JK as well.

Great threads info on the rear camera installations

Thanks kbwwolf for doing the leg work for me! One of the most compelling reasons I read on one of the threads for getting the 730N is for its adaptability for future upgrades which is important to me if I like a vehicle I am likely to keep it a long time. Thanks again!

kbwwolf Can't help myself:

PM xsdbs about the rearview camera. I've told him that I was gonna refer most media questions to him, since he seems to consistently find answers that no one else can.

Kelsey73 I have the old style 730N in my SRT8 (navteq) and went with the 430N in the jeep. I went with the 430N because I didn't think the extra features were worth the $$. The 430N does everything my old 730N does and does it much cleaner and faster. The nav and interface is far superior over the navteq IMO.

kbwwolf Hey Shireman, bet you didn't expect such instant bombardment, huh?

Sorry man, but here it is:

430 or 730?
430 or 730 Media
2012 Media Center Options

Enjoy!

I went with the 430N for these reasons:

Easier to use, and the screen seemed (to me, at least) more user-friendly.
I'm used to Garmin and prefer them over NavTeq.
I have no use for the "Breadcrumbs" feature on the 730N.
Couldn't justify the extra $$ for the 730 when the 430 had pretty much everything I wanted.

As for the lock pick question, and if you want MUCH more in-depth info (I'll never be mistaken for an audiophile), check with a guy named xsdbs here on the forum.

He da man, when it comes to media center capabilities and drawbacks, stock OR aftermarket, IMO.
