My Tom Tom Go 720 manual explains how to use the Assisted Speech Recognition feature but I cannot see the icons on the "Navigate To" screen for this feature on my unit. Is there something I need to activate to get this feature? Thanks
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 'SUPPORT_ASR.cab' (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.

First, go to the Tom Tom menu and switch on the bluetooth feature. Then, in your phones menu, activate the bluetooth feature and search "new devices". when the phone find the TomTom it will ask for a code. This is usually the numver zero, 4 times i.e. 0000
follow the phone's instructions from there. Hope this helps
To change language: See my other post on this subject: the steps are also applicable for your device.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3818168-tomtom_130_apps_in_foriegn_language Basically: 'Change preference' (look for Spanner image Icon) -> Scroll right Arrow until 'Change language' (look for Flags image Icon) -> Select English -> Select an English Voice To set Home address:
''Change preferences' -> scroll right to get 'Change Home Location' -> use 'Adress' to enter new address or 'Recent destination' to select a recently entered 'navigate to' address.
Hope it helps. Let me know how you go and good luck.
The instructions through FM transmitter violated some European regulations so had to be removed. The latest application update removes this feature for navigation - though music is still allowed. Sucks for US customers, not sure if they will release a US only application build to resolve this issue or not.
Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.
It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the
screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently
pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.
It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.
You cannot customize the voices on this, or any other Garmin product of which I am aware. The Tom Tom Go 720 will allow you to record your own (or someone else's) voice on the unit (50 different phrases). However, any unit with the Text-to-Speech feature (which is what gives you the spoken street names) utilizes computerized voices to put the words together, which is why some sound "garbled." No unit does this better at this time. Tom Tom's pronunciations are, in my opinion, worse if anything (Branch instead of Bridge when abbreviated "Br", Crossing Island Parkway instead of Cross Island Parkway, etc.).
