Re: change lanugage

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.

  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon in the bottom right of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) whichever your satnav has
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items on it; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking person to change the voice instructions to English.
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and change it to English or American English if you're in the USA

The TEXT LAGUAGE should be showing DEUTCH beside it (the German word for German)

This should solve your problem

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.

My Main menue language is German on my TomTom 130 GPS

In the menu, you should find the settings for language.

Now, If you don't speak German, this can be a problem.

If you use your computer to translate, you can do it.

Go to and select the languages as required (German to English). Enter the commands you see on the TomTom, and navigate that was until you see the language settings.
