Re: How do I change the language back to English?!?

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?

[ Edited ]

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
