Preferences page 8 of 8 bottom 2nd from left RESET FACTORY SETTINGS. Push this it should come up with language choice. If not shut it down and do it again . I did this and it started in Russian then after two tries I got a language selection screen. It worked. If you have not much time with the 720 you may just look at the different screen shots of the menus available. I know it is tough when it starts in a different language to find what change you want to make. Page8

How do i change the langiage of my Tom Tom 720 Go ? i have tried resetting it but does not reset the language. Also how do i set my Home address please?

To change language:
See my other post on this subject: the steps are also applicable for your device.

Basically: 'Change preference' (look for Spanner image Icon) -> Scroll right Arrow until 'Change language' (look for Flags image Icon) -> Select English -> Select an English Voice
To set Home address:
''Change preferences' -> scroll right to get 'Change Home Location' -> use 'Adress' to enter new address or 'Recent destination' to select a recently entered 'navigate to' address. Hope it helps. Let me know how you go and good luck.

When i turned on my tom tom i accidently pushed the wrong language and now all the words on the screen are in what I believe to be sweedish and I can't read it to turn it back to english

If you have a picture of your current or last position Tap on the middle of the screen.


In that main menu look for a Spanner or a Wrench (some sort of tool) you will need to tap on that.


You will see a blue arrow pointing right.
Keep pressing it until you see an icon with 3 flags, click that and you should be able to put it back into the English or another language
