I like the snooth glass look and newer graphical user interface. I really like the new window attachment.. no longer do I have to firmly press on the device to snap it in place, this one seats itself with a magnet and is easy to take on and off.. for those worried about the special connector, they give you another one to connect to your pc.
Although having said that, you may have to hit this thing with a big stick to get it to work, because even after calibration this GPS is still less responsive than a body that's been lying in the morgue for 3 weeks. It also has an annoying habit of jumping around, like a kangaroo on a trampoline, from map to map, while you're driving – not good. One minute you're looking at a map of a highway in Bloomington, Indiana, and the next minute it directs you to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and you find yourself driving around the track, which can be quite scary if there's a race on (it actually wasn't that bad, I finished 3rd).
So if you're the sort of person that enjoys getting lost a lot then go ahead and buy it. Personally, I'd probably recommend this GPS as much I would recommend fire eating to a man soaked in gasoline.
Things I like about the 2405
(+) The 2405 comes with lifetime traffic & maps, while the 730 required a subscription and did not offer traffic at all. The lifetime map subscription is probably the #1 reason that I chose to buy the 2405. The difference in price between the two units was mostly the cost of the map subscription. Since the 2405 is the newer, updated model, so it made sense to get that one. Bluetooth/hands-free functionality was a must-have for me. Few of TomTom's newer models have that feature, but the 2405 does have it.
(+) The touchscreen on the 2405 is much more responsive than on the 730. I rarely have to click something twice on the 2405, while on the 730 it was routine.
(+) The computer voice is much clearer and speaks street names more accurately on 2405.
(+) The internal speaker seems to be much louder than on the 730
(+) satellite acquisition is much faster on the 2405. In general, the entire unit is much faster.
(+) The 2405 tells you what side of the street your destination is on; the 730 did not. I like this a lot, but I have not been to enough destinations to know how accurate it is.
(+) More map detail is shown on the 2405 than on the 730 while navigating. It's not a necessity by any means, but I think it's a nice touch.
(+) The magnetic mount and the new click-to-lock windshield mount are very nice. I usually leave the windshield mount in place and remove the gps unit itself (I know...it's just asking for a smashed window, but so far, so good). The 2405 snaps in & out wonderfully easily.
Things I dislike about the 2405
(-) Although both units have the 4.3 inch form factor, the fonts on the 2405 are smaller than on the 730. I haven't found any option to change them, either. This is my #1 complaint with this unit. I'm of the age where reading glasses are a fact of life. With the 730, I could easily read the screen while driving without glasses under most circumstances. On the 2405, I can read the screen unaided only under ideal conditions. I'm trying to decide if it's enough of a negative to return the 2405 and get the 5-inch format 2505. I'm sure I'd have to pay a restock fee since there's nothing wrong with my 2405 unit.
(-) I have less control over what optional data to put on the screen of the 2405. For example, I really like to have my current heading displayed. There's no option on the 2405 to do that. The 730 had separate options for compass (N, S, E, W) and for heading (238 degrees). Units from other manufacturers also have the option of showing elevation. That's not one that I use while driving, but it's fun for the kids when we're in the mountains and the trip is long.
(-) The nighttime font on the 730 (a black background with green outlines) was readable while being much less glaring than on the 2405. I changed the 2405 to the closest match I could find, and I still find it a little distracting. The default was terrible, like having a flashlight shining in one eye at night. Daytime is just fine.
(-) As others have noted, TomTom uses a custom power/data connector cord, so don't lose it!
(+-) I haven't had much experience with the traffic features, so I won't comment on them at the moment. We're taking a long driving trip at Christmas that will take us through several metro areas, so the feature will get some exercise.
(+-) The voice recognition feature on the 2405 works a little better than on the 730, but it's still more of a gee-whiz feature than something truly useful. I doubt that I will use it very much.
All-in-all, I am pleased with my 2405. As I said earlier, the size of the screen fonts is a disappointment. To a lesser extent, so is the removal of some configuration options. One of TomTom's strengths over Garmin is the amount of configurability it has. I'm still deciding whether I will wait for a software update to see if the font size improves or if I just need to pay the restock fee and get the larger-screened 2505.
UPDATE: I've kept the 2405. I find I can read the fonts pretty well now that I'm used to them. One new disappointment - I've found the speed limit database to be completely out of date. We drove over 2000 miles at the holidays in mostly interstate driving. The database showed inaccurate speed limits for at least parts of every single metro area that we drove through. Sometimes higher than the posted limit, sometimes lower. I have turned off the speed limit display option; I don't trust it at all.
