I am tempted! yes here goes Your signal wont come back, your signal wont come back ( Old Tune of my boomerang wont come back)

It probably wont if the battery is flat , so first try charging bthe battery before turning to map programming. If that doesn't work then expect the worst.... you have damaged the SIIRF chip which is the chip that contacts the satellites
Very expensive to reapair cheaper to buy a new GPS generally
tomtom are notorious for this problem, but most times its caused by user abuse of overcharging or starting the car with the GPS plugged to DC spikes are common even though they dont blow the fuse in the charger plug. Even Mobile phones should be plugged after the engine is started. none of the GPS Distributors othert than one wilkl tell you of this money spinner. Next time aroumd you may want to consider an ALTINA see Marbella Australia and also read their FAQ on caring for your GPS

Tap the Change preference icon. It is the one with the blue wrench to the left of the orange arrow on the top picture. Once you are in change preferences, use the right arrow to explore the options. Find the icon that is shown on the next picture (the Flags). Use the Up and down arrows that will show to the right of the list of languages to select the language you want.

I have lost my instruction on operating my GSP where can I purchase another one?


It is not really necessary. Some guides are rather lean. Follow the link select the model and download a copy. Alternatively use the CD that shipped with it. If no CD was in the box, download the Tomtom Home software and install it on you computer. By running the HOME and clicking the right arrow you will find a large icon that says Read the manual of my device. Use it to download a copy. But before the software knows what device you have, it must register it.

I would like to just use my tomtom just to see the road names


Under the change preferences general menu, use the right arrow to go to the 4th page (4/8) and tap the Street Name preferences. Then put a check mark in the boxes Show Street names, Show next Street name, and Show current name on map.
Press Done, twice.
As some menu options may be hidden, the Street name preferences option may be on some other page..

You have to choose one of the voices that says computer voices for it to read street names.
