change preferences, change language.
I realize you have a foreign language on your screen.
The change language option is the image surrounded by flags of different countries.

First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.

It is very common to get faults with the main program(application) on tomtom satnavs. Download the instructions from www.tomtom.com Connect your device to tomtom using your pc and tomtom home. It should update the application. On the web site is full instructions on reinstalling all the programs to the device however you will need to save your map and install it from this backup once application has been installed as you cannot download a new map without subscription or payment. Check the website for the latest post codes for your map and install it as well This is free. MAKE A BACKUP of the device first as if anything goes wrong you can reinstall the backup.

Seem your GPS device storage media (disk) has problems or the data may be corrupted. Try using the disk check utility on your computer to scan / fix the disk & data first. Then try it again.
If the GPS still doesn't work (after doing the disk check), try to restore the disk content from your back-up.

It is likely that your battery is low or nearly-dead, particularly if you haven't used your GPS for a while and it has not been plugged in (to be kept charged). That's why it doesn't start (even if it is plugged in when you're trying to start it up again now). Don't try to repeat the startup (too often) as it will mess up your sw / data (when your battery is low or half dead) You'll want to plug it in (e.g. using your USB or wall adapter) for up to 24 hours or so, to charge the battery. Then start it up and keep it plugged in until your battery is fully charged.

Hi

Make sure it is up to date (go to Help/update Home). It may have taken your code so will not take it again, and it is not needed again. Once you get all the software updated, try to run your XXL through while connected to Tom-tom Home by selecting "Operate My Device" (sometimes referred to as the emulator) and navigate to some destination in a city, then select done, properly disconnect from Tom-tom Home (Device/Disconnect Device) and restart device.

Also connect to Home. Run the emulator (Operate my unit). Navigate to a location. In the city screen, make sure you select a specific state, not the USA symbol. Once completed, disconnect properly from Home using the blue device disconnect icon.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com
