How can I change the language on screen? i dont understand the extrange languge on it to bring it back to english, thanks

So you've got that brand new shiny TomTom, turned it on, and .... OOPS! ... somehow you've selected the wrong language. Suddenly the entire interface is (literally) in some foreign language and you can't figure out how to get back to English. This has happened to quite a few people recently, so here is a short tutorial on how to get back to US English.TomTom Main MenuIf the device is currently turned on and you are anywhere but the primary map/driving view, it might be helpful to turn the device off. Then you can turn it back on to get yourself to the map/driving view. Now click anywhere on the map to take you to the Main Menu. Depending on the language you picked and your device, it should look something like the image on the right. Click on the wrench icon (highlighted in red here) which will take you to the 'Change Preferences' menu.TomTom Change LanguageNow that you are in the Change Preferences menu, keep tapping on the right arrow button to cycle through the menu until you see an icon with three flags on it. That is the 'Change Language' button. Click on that button to bring up a list of the languages installed on your device.TomTom English USUse the arrow keys up and down to find your language, likely 'English US' for most readers of this site. A dialog will appear asking "English US?" at which point you will say 'Yes'. Presto, change-o, you are back in busines

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.
