XXL 540TM Operate Left-handed vs Operate Right-handed?

In the "Change Preferences" of the XXL-540TM, I see "Operate Left-handed" and when selected, changed to "Operate Right-handed".  I toggled this setting a few times and looked for changes on the GPS display but didn't notice anything different.  What are these settings for?

Depending on which setting is used, it optimizes the navigation screen to be operated easier when being right or left handed. I don't immediatly see any differences when changing the option but normally the differences should be noticed after having changed the setting and using the navigation device for a while longer.:smileywink:

when being right or left handed, you meant driving on the right side or left side of the street or operating the device right-handed or left-handed?  I'm still confused :smileyindifferent:

Primarily if you select right hand ( the hand you write with :smileywink:) the "Done" button appears on the bottom right of the screen.  Left handed --- the button is on the left. A few other button positions also change.

Ah, I see it now.  Selecting "Operate Left-Handed", the device's input prompts (Done, Cancel, Back, etc) are placed on the bottom LEFT.  Selecting "Operate Right-Handed", the prompts are displayed on the RIGHT.  Tomtom needs to work out their UI naming NOT to confuse users :smileyhappy:  Thank you for clarifying!!
