Second one: Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences: Tap on the arrow once (You should be on: Preferences 2 of 6 by now. Tap on change voice. Select a voice which has English US or UK after the name (example: Lori, English US). You can also Select a voice, that has English US or UK, computer ( example: Simon, English UK, Computer), if you would like spoken street names, (provided your unit is capable of saying street names). Test and select. Go through voice preferences. Tap Done.
Note: although all units are capable of speaking instructions only some units are capable of speaking street names and the *computer* part is important for that feature to work.

I have a tomtom xl 330-s and cannot get a screen in english


Hi,

To change the language to English on this unit do the following

1) First make sure the unit is fully charged as you will need to proceed with a reset of the unit.

2) Once the unit is fully charged - press and hold the on/off button for at least 15 seconds until you see it perform a restart.

3) Once you are sure it has restarted turn the unit on normally and you will see a screen filled with text. This will probably not be in English so tap the little tab in the right hand lower corner of the screen to proceed.

4) Now tap anywhere near the centre of the screen which brings you to a main menu.

5) You will see 6 icons on this screen. Tap the one right in the centre of the bottom row.

6) Now Tap on the right arrow icon (which is on the righthand bottom of the screen) until you see a screen appear with an icon with three flags. The three flags icon will be in the top left hand side of the screen.

7) Tap the three flags icon - you will see English appear in the options list - tap this and chose Yes to confirm.

If you follow this procedure exactly the unit will display English language screens from here on in.

Hope this helps. Many thanks for using FixYa.

Changing Language from Italian to English


If you want Italian, then the unit will show Italian. If you want it to show English, then you set it up for English. You can't have Italian verbal directions on an English unit.

To change the unit back to English:
Press Wrench.
Press the button with the picture of gears on it.
Press Down arrow.
Choose second menu item from the top.
Press the middle of the 3 boxes on the right.
Press up arrow to find American or British English.
