    Hi
    @zydhockey

    Which Tomtom device do you own ???
    Its only the early NAV2 devices that use Tomtom Home for updating that can have the keyboard positions corrected....

    The NAV3 NAV4 & NAV5 devices that use MyDrive Connect and/or Wifi to update the device cannot be corrected....

    Hi
    @zydhockey

    Sorry the Start 20 is a NAV3 device... You have no access to the Operating System files....

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......
