I somehow chose the language on my tom tom 335 s xl to dutch it speaks english but i cant read the dutch to change it back


Bring it back into the house (unless you have your software on a laptop) Plug it into the computer with the cable they gave you, then go to Tom Tom's website and follow the instructions for a reset.

Sometimes just plugging it into the computer will automatically reload the software menu.

How can I charge my tomtom xl 340s with my computer or is there an ac adapter option? Is car charging the only method?


According to Bill, from the TomTom technical services, your TomTom will charge when plugged either to your computer or to your car, as long at your gps unit is turned OFF.

Garmin nuvi 5000 wont turn on. I can plug up the usb up to the computer and the screen shows garmin logo with a gps connected to a computer like its charging. But when i press the power button weather it...


Your nuvi 5000 does NOT have a internal battery and that means that you cannot operate it unless it is connected to a 12 volt power source. Connecting it to your computer via USB allows you to install map updates, check for firmware updates, etc, but you will not be able to use it as a gps while it is connected to the computer. There is nothing wrong with your gps.
To use your gps in the home you need to purchase a 12 volt adapter, there are several types, plug the adapter into your wall outlet and connect your gps to it. If you can sit near a window it will help in picking up the satellite signal. Just keep in mind that you cannot connect the 12 volt power supply and use the usb cable at the same time. Enjoy your gps.

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational...


More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

Battery question


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.
