Question about Tomtom GPS Devices

1 Answer

Hi, just got my TomTom One and find that language used is German. My German is only fair and I would appreciate converting to American English. I did this to a unit in the store, but, of course, cannot do it at home on my own unit. Please walk me through the change. Dave Abbiati

I have a tomtom 510 and to change the language, I first tap the screen to bring up the first menu. Then tap "change preferences". Then tap the next page arrow until the "change language" option comes up.

Just got a tomtom xl 335 se and mistakely tap the germen language,and dont know how to change to american. please help


Hi, go through the menu options until you come across a symbol with 3 flags, when in this menu option you should then be able to change back to american, a bit hit and miss I know but try looking at user guide on the support option at http://www.tomtom.com/, or go to shop and use menu on another tomtom to follow on yours to get to right option.
If this helps please rate me

How can i change my tomtom to english? It is in German when I first turned it on


You will have to check 2 settings. First one. Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on the arrow 3 times. You should be on page: Preferences 4 of 6 by now. Tap on change language. Tap on English US. Tap on Yes.

Since its in german.. You may need to use google translate to translate the german to english just so you know what screens in german match with the screens listed above.

My Main menue language is German on my TomTom 130 GPS


In the menu, you should find the settings for language.

Now, If you don't speak German, this can be a problem.

If you use your computer to translate, you can do it.

Go to http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ and select the languages as required (German to English). Enter the commands you see on the TomTom, and navigate that was until you see the language settings.

Tap the Change preference icon. It is the one with the blue wrench to the left of thae orange arrow on the top picture. Once you are in change preferences, use the right arrow to explore the options. Find the icon that is shown on the next picture (the Flags). Use the Up and down arrows that will show to the right of the list of languages to select the language you want.
