Have one, takes some getting use to after owning a Dash Express and Garmin PND's.
Purchased the Go 740 as a replacement to my Dash Express, but find that I'm still using both units until I get use to the 740, ($339 from MacMall).
Some features of the 740 I like others I don't.
I wish it had a send to car like the Dash as well as a driver network and custom applications that you would be able to send to the PND.
Features I do like, able to customize voices and edit vehicles.
A feature I don't like is it doesn't turn on when the ignition is turned on, pain fumbling for the power button every time to turn it back on. And for as much as you spend on it they don't even include a case for the PND.

Hands down it tromps all over the Navigon 7200 which I also own. The Navigon interface is clunky, not to mention that after you get it set up with your addresses you better back it up. And it takes too many steps to even start on navigating to your destination.
The Navigon is prone to being corrupt for some unknown reason so you have to delete the directory and reload your backup.
