It is possible that the map data(base) and/or the navigation software is corrupted.
Have you tried running a (fix) disk utility against your (internal or external) storage disk for the GPS ?
For instance, connect the GPS to your PC (Windows), and select (highlight) the (internal) "disk" on the GPS device. Under File - Properties, go to the Tools (tab) and run the "Error-Checking" option.
This utility may fix your data error.
If not, consider doing a restore (from backup) of your GPS disk storage.
Should work just fine without having to change anything. If i remember right UK is still on the imperial system and not the metric which wouldn't affect the unit, just in the road signs, As in kms to someplace instead of miles like you are used to. As for the maps i would suggest that you buy another SD card and download the UK maps to it and leave your card at home. To switch maps see if the map you need is on the SD card, probably not, but it might be on your cd that came with the unit. If so just use a new card and download it using the software onto the SD card. Test the card to make sure that it works before you leave though. Hope this helps
Letting the battery run down will not fix it, so recharge it. I suspect your maps have become corrupted or at worst deleted. Reinstall your maps from the CD or by contacting TOMTOM and quoting your licence number for a download. Leaving GPS in car subject to extreme heat will danage the card and often the maps. Gloveboxes are not exempt either as they often reach over 50C when car is left in the sun. ( assuming it is summer wherever you are)
