I live in the USA. How do I use the TomTom Go 910 in the UK?
Do I have to change anything in the preferences in order to use my TomTom Go 910 in the UK? Documentation seems to say that I don't need to "switch maps". (If I do need to switch maps, how do I do that?)

Should work just fine without having to change anything. If i remember right UK is still on the imperial system and not the metric which wouldn't affect the unit, just in the road signs, As in kms to someplace instead of miles like you are used to. As for the maps i would suggest that you buy another SD card and download the UK maps to it and leave your card at home. To switch maps see if the map you need is on the SD card, probably not, but it might be on your cd that came with the unit. If so just use a new card and download it using the software onto the SD card. Test the card to make sure that it works before you leave though. Hope this helps

I have a Go920 and the 910 is very similar.
go into menu: change preference (5th icon on pg 1 of 3); then go to pg 8 and change language is the first icon; cursor down to your choice of language and accept
If the LCD backlight is gone theres no choice but to replace the whole screen ( OR it could be the LCD lamp driver circuit on the circuit board ) . It's not economical to purchase a new screen but it is possible to purchase a defunct 910 , typicaly off ebay and use the screen from it . ( ensure you are buying a tomtom with a good intact screen ) . Changing the screen is tricky and fiddly but someone with general electronics knowledge should'nt find it difficult. You also need the special "star" drivers for the screws ( sometimes known as ' torxs ' ). If you are inexperienced with this sort of work then its best not to attempt it. There are companies advertising that can do this type of work for you and especialy in UK......... Good luck.
Hi, Answers to your 2 questions 1 and 2 . ...... 1/ go into PREFERENCES , hit right arow key till you see MANAGE MAPS , Tap that MAP icon and in there will be all the maps you have on the SD card. Select the map you require by tapping the screen. ............................................. 2/ YES , backup the SD card to your PC first. ( you should save everything on the card as it is ) Then delete the Europe map off the SD card and replace it with the USA map . You will need the authorisation code for the USA map in order to activate it. When you return you can swap the maps back again.
