SOURCE: i have a tomtom xxl

First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.

Drops out when setting time preference

By dropping out I am assuming you mean it freezes up and turns off.
If this is the case your XXL has an incompatible bootloader and requires updating. This will be the case even if you updated it via tomtom HOME. Back up your map, voices and zip then reformat and reinstall navcore
