SOURCE: Text to speech does not

Oddly enough I had the same problem with the 260W. What the skimpy documentation doesn't say is that the voice you select must have the letters TTS next to it. Otherwise you just get the voice and no street names.

SOURCE: No Assisted Speech Recognition icons

Technically, ASR is not officially supported on the 720, so their is no guarantees. But, first make sure you have the latest application installed via HOME, 'Update my GO'.

Then, open Notepad and type the number 1 ("1"), without quotes, in the editor. Save this file as '' (again, without quotes). It's important that you change the extension of the file from .txt to .cab. Then copy this file into the 'ASR' folder on your TomTom device. Allow your TomTom to boot up and try it again. Also, the icons will be greyed out if you haven't selected a country/state.

I have lost all my maps on m garmin nuvi 880. When I select one of my favorites it displays route calculation error. no roads near starting point. Also the display screen does not show any...

Try connecting it to your computer via a USB cable. Then log on to Garmin's webiste and download a map update. Then you can put the map update on your GPS to replace the ones you lost. All Garmin customers get one free map update. After than it's about $40-$60 dollars for an update.

Looking for the garmin you speak to you dont have to type in the address you say it.also has a flip screen


None of the Garmin units will have flip screens, unless your referring to Dual Orientation. The nuvi 3790 and 2360 will have dual orientation screens they also do speech recognition so you will be able to speak commands instead of manually inputting them.

Hope this helps!

I just got this 880 and activated the remote I already had. The voice recognition works fine for POI's and the other things, but when I try to us it for addresses it gives me a text message on the creen...

sounds like the firmware on the device is corrupted to me, it should have came with some sort or connector (either proprietary or USB) which can use to connect it to the computer. Redownload the firmware or update to the most recent version like is:
