How to change language from Spanish back to English?




When you first switch on your device, you have to answer a few questions to set up the device. When these questions appear in the wrong language, it's best to soft-reset your device.

Devices which are reset by holding the On/Off button:
Press the On/Off button and keep holding it until you hear the TomTom start sound. This takes at least 15 seconds. Also keep holding down the On/Off button if your device switches off or shows the start-up screen.

Devices which are reset using a paper clip or pen:
Press the reset button using a paper clip or something similar for 15 seconds. Then press the On/Off button for at least 5 seconds.



To change the language on your navigation device, do the following:
  1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main menu.

  2. Tap Change preferences.

  3. Tap the arrow in the bottom right corner until you see the Change language button. Tap Change language.

    1381_02.gif 1381_flags.gif

  4. Tap on a language to select it. 1381_select_language_uk.gif

    Follow the instructions on the screen to confirm your language selection and choose a voice.

How should i chage the language on tomtom to


Do you want to change the language of the VOICE or the WORDS IN THE SCREEN? These two are independent from each other and need to be set up by separate.

1) To change the VOICE, you need to download an ENGLISH VOICE.
a) Start TomTom2_bing.gif Home on your computer.
b) Plug in2_bing.gif the TomTom dock to a USB port on your computer and plug in your TomTom GPS2_bing.gif on the dock
c) Turn on the GPS and when asked "connect to computer" answer "yes" (you may not be asked if you want to connect; TomTom2_bing.gif Home amy detect your GPS and connect to it automatically). If your GPS is not connecting to TomTom Home, turn the GPS off, turn it upside down and press the "reset" button for 7 seconds, place the GPS back on the dock and turn it on. It should automatically connect to TomTom Home now.
d) On the TomTom Home software, click on the icon labeled "Add Traffic, Voice, cameras..."
e) Click on the icon labeled "voices"
f) Click on the icon labeled "computer voices"
g) Click on any of the voices that says "English" on the second ("language") column; download and install the voice
h) Go to the TomTom Home top menu and under "DEVICE" choose "DISCONNECT DEVICE". Wait a few seconds until the GPS communication with the computer is broken and the GPS restarts. You don't need the computer anymore for now
i) On your TomTOm GPS, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the menu.
j) Touch "CHANGE PREFERENCES"
k) Touch "VOICE PREFERENCES"
l) Touch "CHANGE VOICE"
m) Select any of the voices that are in English (such as "SUSAN, English US, Computer"). After this, you can TEST the voice. Check that you can hear the voice, otherwise, you'll need to adjust the volume. We'll do this later. Touch "SELECT" to select the voice. Press "DONE" on the next 3 screens until you're back to the GPS navigation screen
n) To change the volume, tap on the LOWER LEFT rectangle. You'll get a VOLUME SLIDE. Slide it to the RIGHT to increase the volume and to the LEFT to lower it. I keep mine around 85% volume. YOU ARE DONE SETTING UP A NEW VOICE

2) To change the LANGUAGE of the WRITTEN DIRECTIONS on the screen:
a) On your TomTom GPS screen, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the MAIN MENU on
b) Tap on the PREFERENCES icon
c) Tap on the RIGHT ARROW 7 times or until you see an icon labeled "CHANGE LANGUAGE".
d) Using the UO and DOWN arrows on the GPS screen, scroll up or down untill you see the langauges you're looking for. You'll get a screen with several languages available, including "English UK" and "English US"
d) Touch on the screen you want. The screen will automatically go back to the previous menu screen that shows the "CHANGE LANGUAGE" icon. Touch the "DONE" button.

YOU ARE ALL DONE. Now, your VOICE and all WRITTEN DIRECTIONS should be in ENGLISH.

If this didn't work, please report back so that I can provide further assistance

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start beginning questions all over again.


1. Turn on the TomTom unit. 2. Tap the screen to bring up the menu. 3. Tap the "Change Preferences" icon 4. Keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page. Clock setting is on page 6 of the preferences dialog. 5. If the Set Clock option is greyed out, you will need to perform a system reset and then perform these steps over again.
To reset the system, start with the power off. Then, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, until you see the TomTom logo appear on the display. When the logo appears, release the power button. After this reset, you should be able to turn the unit back on and proceed with your setup from scratch.

All I have is a flashing signal that says waitig for valid GPS signal


Another thing to try:

Tap the satellite bars in the lower right corner. This will bring you to a screen called "Status summary." You'll see satellite bars on the right-hand side of the screen. Tap them.

This will bring you to GPS Status. Tap "Configure" in the lower left corner. Change the coordinate display to D.D (or if it's on D.D right now, change it to DM.M). Tap "Done" then "Done" again.

Has that fixed the problem?

Last week I updated my TomTom One with the latest maps, etc. Since then whenever I use my TomTom it keeps displaying a "Shutting down in 10 seconds" screen, with follow up screens, and then it shuts down....


Make sure you have "never turn off screen" checked, To do this tap "change prferences" tap the forward arrow until you see "battery saving preferences". Tap "battery saving preferences" then tap "never turn screen off". Tap "done" and make sure that "switch off when external power is lost" is not checked. Tap "done". If you do not see this option go back into "change preferences" tap the forward arrow until you see "show menu options" it should read "show fewer munu options"

My Tom Tom One takes a long time to pick up a GPS signal (30 to 45 minutes)


You might want to try updating your TomTom through TomTom Home. It loads something called "QuickFix" onto the TomTom, which I guess tells the TomTom where GPS satellites are going to be. I get a fix in about 5-15 seconds if I keep this updated, otherwise it takes a few minutes.

MY TOMTOM ONE IS WAITING FOR A VALID GPS SIGNAL I HAVE ALREDY STARTED TWICES


Turn on your tt and let it bootup. After it has booted up go to the map screen. On the bottom right where the bars are for satellite reception. Tap the bars this will take you to the screen telling you the device code etc. On the upper far right where the battery icon is tap the screen again. This will take you to a screen showing the satellites. If you see grey bars on the graph just wait awhile. Sometimes when your tt has not been turned on for awhile or you have turned it on after traveling a few miles it may take up to 30 minutes to get a lock.
Hope this helps
