How do i change the language to english

I am enclosing a few screen captures to help you find your way.


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.

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names

hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

When i try to backup to my computer:

When TomTom Home installs, I believe it either also installs, or needs to have installed, a copy of the Visual Studio Runtime (a 'C' language runtime from Microsoft). Also, your computer needs to have JavaScript enabled in the browser.
Check to see that both these required items are installed. It is beyond the scope of this question to tell you how to do that, I'm sorry.

Are there any new update maps for my new 340 s Tom

If you bought your TomTom brand new, the first time you installed the TomTom Home software, you may have received a message that a free map upgrade was available. If you did not receive that message, then either the unit is up to date, or it was not new.
You can check the version of map you're using by going to the TomTom Home software, and from the main menu, click the "More" button to get to page 2. From there, choose "Manage my ONE XL", and click on the "Items on Device" tab.
Click the "+" sign to the left of the word "Maps", then click the "More Info" link to discover the version of map you are using. The most current version (as of December 1, 2009) is 840.2568.
If that is not your version and you believe you're entitled to it, call TomTom technical support and state your case. Otherwise, if you want this version of map, you will need to purchase it.
When trying to load a new map onto your device, make sure you first run the backup routine (in TomTom Home) to back up the old map. After downloading a new map, but before it can be installed, you'll need to remove the old map, since there isn't enough room on the device to have both maps loaded simultaneously.
Hope this helps.

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start

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.

Where is the reset button on the Tomtom xl340s

The TomTom XL 340-S uses the power button as a reset. With the unit turned off, hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds, until the TomTom turns on. As soon as the unit turns on, release the power button. The unit is now reset.

We just purchased an XL 340-S amd cannot get it to

Step 1: Make sure the dash is clean and dry. Step 2: Take the dash mounting DISC that came with the unit and remove the cover sheet (yellowish in color). This should expose the adhesive. Step 3: Place the adhesive side of the disc on the area of the dash where you want your unit mounted. Be aware that the disc will not remove easily after being placed. Step 4: Press and hold the disc in place and put pressure on it to squeeze out any air pockets. Step 5: Once the disc is in place, ensure that the smooth surface of the disc is clean and dry, and free of grease. Step 6: Press the suction cup on the back of the TomTom windshield mount onto the smooth part of the disc, and rotate the locking ring clockwise until it won't turn any further. The locking ring is used to form an air-tight seal between the suction cup and the surface it is mounted to.
To remove the suction cup from the dashboard disc, simply rotate the locking ring counter clockwise and remove the unit from the disc. The disc remains permanently attached to the dash.

I reformated my canada xl 310.i lost all my files.just a screen with a red x.

You've probably backed up the contents of your TomTom disk (when it was connected to your computer) to your computer before you reformatted the TomTom Disk. Or you used the TomTom Home to back up the contents of your TomTom. Try to copy the back-up files back on to your TomTom device disk and see if it works. Just curious ... why did you reformat your TomTom disk ? which will erase all the files on the TomTom disk.

Tomtom free updates

You can use TomTom HOME software to connect to the TomTom website, to get updates to your TomTom GPS. The TomTom website provides free updates for the current satellite positions, the MapShare revisions and the navigation software, if applicable. A new release of the map has to be purchased on a one-time basis, or you can subscribe to new quarterly releases.
