Question about Tomtom ONE XL GPS

Open Question

My tomtom XL freezes then restart me back at the start of selecting my preferences again. I had to reset my GPS and it then had me back to setting up my preferences again. I go through the setup screen of selecting the language, left or right handed, miles or Km, time, voice, and speech preferences. Although when I get to the 2nd page of the speech preferences that has "Read aloud warnings", "Read aloud tips", etc.... when I hit done it freezes for about a half minute then restarts me back at selecting my preferences again. It will not let me past this screen no matter what preferences I select. I have also tried resetting it many times but problem still persists. Please help! Thanks

SOURCE: TomTom XL Text-to-Speech not working

I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.

The TomTom XL does not have text to speech. The TomTom XL-S does.

SOURCE: How do I enable spoken street name aloud on my

Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you want, street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

SOURCE: My Tomtom One keeps going

try resetting it. you can restore settings or better still get latest operating system by connecting up to internet. downloading the latest operating system and updated basic maps is free. another problem might be that the batteries are low and you may just need to connect to power source. the tomtom one is not the most powerful sat nav, it runs out of battery quickly and has very little memory (only ONE gig) but as long as you use it within its capabilities it is pretty reliable and does the basics very well.... imo
good luck

try this originally posted by gt3rs i just did it and it worked for me Here is a solution that worked in my case (constant reboots after voice select)
  1. Plug your tomtom into your PC.
  2. Run TomTom Home
  3. Select the option to run your TomTom through your PC (TT Home)
  4. You should be greated with the select language screen
  5. Then simply select language etc.
  6. When you get to the voice selection: select a voice (here TTHome should freeze) <- also strangely enough notice the cancel button doesn't on the screen (as it does when doing this on the device)
  7. Don't panic TT Home should start working again in a few seconds
  8. Disconnect your TomTom and that should have solved the problem, the normal map screen should show up upon starting up your TomTom
This solved the issue for me, hope it does for you good luck!

One of the voices you added from the computer is corrupt. Plug the tomtom back in to the computer and remove the customer voices one by one till you find the one that is corrupt. If you can't do this using the tomtom app, reply and I will find out where the files are and tell you which ones to delete from the momory.

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start beginning questions all over again.


1. Turn on the TomTom unit. 2. Tap the screen to bring up the menu. 3. Tap the "Change Preferences" icon 4. Keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page. Clock setting is on page 6 of the preferences dialog. 5. If the Set Clock option is greyed out, you will need to perform a system reset and then perform these steps over again.
To reset the system, start with the power off. Then, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, until you see the TomTom logo appear on the display. When the logo appears, release the power button. After this reset, you should be able to turn the unit back on and proceed with your setup from scratch.
