Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I accidentally set my Nat Sav to German(?) When I want English

My husband bought be a Tom Tom One XL for Christmas! (Hurrah! end of map reading arguments). He plugged it into the ignition as instructed. As he drove I thought I'd read the 'before you start' quick guide. Unfortunately I was holding the sat nav and my hand must have touched the screen. I was given lots of languages to choose from, but not English! The next thing I know I inadvertently agreed to one of them and we were heading to Streatham in double dutch. It was then I noted on page 5 of before you start.... Important:- Take care to select the correct language, since the language you choose will be used for all menus and written instructions... now they tell me... Can someone tell me how I can 'undo it' and reset to English. We've tried everything, it doesn't give us the option, the booklet doesn't help and we haven't a clue. And yes... we're STILL arguing!!!! (PS you can see we definetely NEED one of these, I can mess up navigation even before it has a chance to help me)

Use a paperclip and press the reset (in a little hole) for 15 seconds... Then turn it on and you should be back to the factory NEW mode...

MY GARMIN IS IN GERMAN . I CANT READ GERMAN . HOW DO I SET IT TO ENGLISH ?


  • 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 get rid of the German language which came with tomtom. How do I get English ???


Turn on your tomtom.
When it has booted to the map display press once on the map
Now click the spanner / wrench icon.
Use the right arrow icon to scroll until you see the flags icon and select that.
The language menu will open and you can set it to english there

If english is not listed then it has been deleted by accident and you would have to download it from tom tom to restore it.

I bought the new maps from website, and can not install


If the software crashed whilst updating, you will find that if you try to restore from a complete backup when you switch on next time it will either say you cant use the map or will just freeze, fix re format both the internal memory and the memory card, then find where tom tom home had stored the files, then using windows copy the contents from the 2 folders back into the relitive internal and external card, you will then find that you will get the mesage that you cant use the map, this is because tom tom home doesent always put the map data into the correct folder, to fix this find the licence data and the map data that has been stored on the sd card instead of the internal memory and copy it into the internal memory, before switching off press the reset button, when you switch on you should find that you have a working tom tom
