Try clicking on the main part of the screen during navigation. Then click on the "wrench" icon (Change preferences). Then click the blue arrow (2x) until you get to the 3rd page (Preferences 3 of 5). Click on Manage maps. Then click on Switch map. Then select USA & Canada.

While i opened ymail appears chinese launguage but i need english launguage

Your country/language setting - what Yahoo! Mail calls your "Preferred Content" - can be adjusted by following these steps:
  1. Click on your user name which is located at the top of your Yahoo! Mail page, next to the Yahoo! Mail logo. This will open a pull-down menu.
  2. Click Edit My Account.
  3. This will open a new window in which you will be prompted to re-enter your password. You will then be re-directed to your Yahoo! ID Card.
  4. Under "Member Information" in your Yahoo! ID Card, click the Edit link. This will take you to "Member Details."
  5. Click on the link next to Preferred Content and from there you can select from a list that best meets your content needs.
  6. Click Finished.
Are you seeing garbled characters in a non-US-language email? If so, you can change Yahoo! Mail's character encoding setting. It's easy! Here's how:
  1. In the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.
  2. From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message's content.
Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case, changing your browser's encoding setting will not work.

Tom Tom only has Guam map since update

That is really strange!
I can only suggest that you verify what MAPs are physically on your TomTom device by connecting it to a PC/LAPTOP and use Windows Explorer to look at your GPS drive folders: should see a folder for each 'country' (like GUAM).
The normal way to check which maps are registred and loaded on your device is to use TomTom Home -> Update maps function: it will show you the status or whereabout of any Maps that you have loaded or backup and which one can be purchased.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.
ps.i f you wisely backup your device on a regular basis (via TomTom Home or direct copy to your PC/LAPTOP), you could always RESTORE FROM BACKUP and start again.

My Tom Tom one 3rd edition wont stay turned on

I had this same problem and I did a reset on the device and then downloaded the newest version of the device software from TomTom. This brought the unit back. I still needed to download maps because mine came up with just Guam maps.
Hope this helps.

Setting country on tomtom one

This TomTom comes loaded with 2 maps....Guam and the US with Canada. I too got stuck in Guam and it is not obvious how to get out of it. But here it is.
Go to Main Menu, then Change Preferences
Hit forward arrow twice
Go to Manage Maps
Hit forward arrow once and choose Switch Map
It should show you Guam and the US and Canada
Tap US and Canada and it should take you out of Guam!!
Mine did and I am now going to delete the Guam map.
