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

How to adjust the volume? Volume is barely audible. Tom Tom 550TM

You can use the PREFERENCES menu option to change the volume of the voice instructions. Use 'Volume preferences' pref06.gif, with its sliding scale to set the required volume in increments of 5%.

The 'Test' function is a good way to get the volume right before starting your journey. You may also find it helpful to use 'Link volume to car speed', so that the voice instructions get louder as road noise increases and are at their quietest when you are stationary.

Which button do you press to change the langage,on th tom tom xl

My guess is that it is the same as the XXL like mine:
"Change Preferences" has several screens accessed by the arrow key, bottom right.
On the XXL it is on screen 4 of 6. If you're lost with another language displaying the icon is 3 flags stacked on top of each other. (UK union Jack on top) Good luck!

Xxl 530s spoken street names

Not all sound files speak out the street names. So, in a way, it is your set up that needs to be changed. It is is not a wrong information. If you want, street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

Go to your preferences menu and scroll down a few pages until you see the clock icon. Click on that and you can set how your time is displayed.The unit actually gets the time from the signals it recieves and is probably the most accurate time piece you can get your hands on.

Set time on tom tom xxl

There are 6 screens in the "Change Preferences" menu.
"Set clock" is the 1st item on page 6. (As is the "Reset factory settings" option for problems that seem insurmountable :o)
