Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

No Assisted Speech Recognition icons

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.

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.

Wont play voice through my stereo...


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.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


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.

Speaking the names of major streets


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.

Not all the Tom Toms have this feature. The Go 720, and I believe the 920 do, but the ONE does not have the "Help Me" feature.

Custom voices


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.).
