When I was setting up my device, I accidentally touched the wrong language & no I can''t figure out how to change it back to English. Could someone help me reset it?

From startup,tap the screen,tap the cogged wheel and arrow through the pages until you get to the flag icons.

Tap flag icon and arrow down to Stars and Stripes for US English or Union Jack for UK English:smileyhappy:

    depends which language you chose as to what the word for 'language' is !

     

    If you chose a tricky one, like Russian or Czech - its tricky to find the word for English

     

    From my experiencemedical devices, the most common reconisable word is 'french' or a version of it - its the same in all lanuguages,

    change the language to that and to English with 'Anglais'

    Thank you! Why couldn't that just put that on the help page? It said to do a soft reboot and that didn't help anything.

    THANK YOU!!

    I did the same thing, but mine seems to be stuck in some kind of set up mode. When I turn it off and back on it just goes back to the same screen. I have no idea what screen it is or how to get to a menu. When I googled the problem I see that many... many people have had the same problem of getting the wrong language. Can't TomTom do something a little more forgiving and straight forward. What do I do now?

    From startup, tap the screen,  tap the cogged wheel (Change Preferences or Options ) and "right arrow" through the pages until you get to the flag icons. Tap flag icon and arrow down to Stars and Stripes for US English or Union Jack for UK English


     


    On some models the Change Preferences ( Options)  icon " cogged wheel" is locate on the very bottom of the screen 4th icon from the left in the blue bar.

    Go through the preference screens on your unit. The last one will show an icon with flags. That's what you want to select. Then scroll through the choices till you see English_US

    Thank you so much for showing the screens! When it's in a different language the wheel doesn't always show up as the same.  Your screens helped me locate it.  Problem solved. :-)
