Re: Change the language

I have a TomTom One 3rd Edition, so if your model is different, the menus/icons may not be the same. However, it's worth a shot.

Tap the main part of the screen to bring up the main menu. You will see an upper and a lower row of icons. Click on the blue "wrench" icon (lower row, center icon). Then, click the arrow (the blue triangle) on the next 3 screens. When you see the icon with 3 waving flags (top row, left icon), click on it. Then scroll down to select either English UK or English US.

How can i change my tomtom to english? It is in German when I first turned it on

You will have to check 2 settings. First one. Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on the arrow 3 times. You should be on page: Preferences 4 of 6 by now. Tap on change language. Tap on English US. Tap on Yes.

Since its in german.. You may need to use google translate to translate the german to english just so you know what screens in german match with the screens listed above.

Hi, just got my TomTom One and find that language used is German. My German is only fair and I would appreciate converting to American English. I did this to a unit in the store, but, of course, cannot...

I have a tomtom 510 and to change the language, I first tap the screen to bring up the first menu. Then tap "change preferences". Then tap the next page arrow until the "change language" option comes up.
