Glad to HELP YOU!

Usually you have to FULLY CHARGE the device before you operate it. To do so you have to connect TomTom Via 1xx that you have to your PC/notebook using the USB cable.
When these operation is finished you may use your device.
First you have to let the TomTom device detect and communicate with the satellites; on a COLD START it might take up to 50 seconds to establish the protocol on the GPS part of your Via 180. Then you have to go to SETTING and to input you data like time zone, hour format, distance format, sort of roads to avoid and sort of roads to use and so on.
Once you were done - you will be ready to navigate.
HERE you have a very useful video about how to operate the device and HERE you have a demo video straight from the official website of TomTom.

My best wishes!

Hi Vinarbor.
Just touch the middle of your screen to get to the main menu.
Touch settings.
Touch right arrow 3 times till you see SET UNITS in bottom right.
Touch set units.
You will now be able to set your units from MPH to KMH.

Hope this helps,
