TomTom has just released their newest top-of-the-line flagship GPS device called the GO 920T. This feature-filled navigation device should prove to be a strong force in the high-end GPS market. It has just about every feature that you would expect to find in a high-end navigational unit, but it also boasts a feature that isn't available in any comparable unit (as of the date of this writing) - voice recognition address input control.
Aside from this awesome new feature, the GO 920T offers a 4.3" touch-screen LCD display, Bluetooth, FM transmitter, traffic warnings, maps of North America and Europe, and a whole lot more. On paper, this GPS device looks like the best choice available right now in the portable navigation market, but you have to look beyond the long list of features and really examine the performance of this device before you rush to your local electronics store and plop down $600 for the 920T. Yeah, it's not cheap, but what do you expect from a top-of-the-line unit?
The most impressive feature of the TomTom GO 920T is the aforementioned voice recognition address input, which allows you to speak an address and the GO 920T "finds" it. This is a very convenient feature that not only makes it easier to input addresses, but also serves the cause of safety. The ability to keep your hands on the steering wheel, your eyes on the road, and still be able to operate your GPS device is a great innovation and it's the future of GPS design.
The question is: does this new feature work as advertised, or is it just a novelty? I will take a look at the performance of the voice recognition address input feature as well as the other key features in TomTom's newest flagship model, the GO 920T.
