I had the same problem until my wife quickly figured it out.Touch the main part of the screen and then touch change preferences.Hit the forward arrow several times {4 on mine}then you will see "set clock".I'm not sure if i have a 520 ,but it is a tom-tom.

Time is incorrect on tomtom 330s


Turn on your TomTom and tap the screen until you see change preferences. Tap "change preferences", then tap the forward arrow until you see "set clock". If you don't see "set clock" you may have to tap "show more menu options".

Tom tom sat nav 520 voice is garbled and unclear how can i fix this.


You don't say which operating system (navcore) you have installed on your device but there were some bugs in some of the navcores tt released.
Try this:
Make a complete backup of your device on your pc. This is very important. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. Make a new folder on your desktop open the drive of your tt and copy and paste everything on the tt to the new folder. This will take awhile. DO NOT USE TT HOME FOR YOUR BACKUP!!!!
Then reformat the drive on your tt device. Turn off your tt while connected. Then turn your tt back on and let tt home reinstall the navcore. You may have to do this several times to get the latest navcore back onto your device. After you have done this copy and paste your maps and bmp images back to the root of your device (copy and paste these items to the drive letter of your device. DO NOT OPEN THE DRIVE).
You should be ready to go.
Hope this helps
