My husband picked Turkey and not U.S. by mistake. How do we change the language back?


  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol) in the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAPS
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings menu
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking county.
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
Press KEYBOARD and select American or English

While I know you probably won't be able to read the Turkish text I hope you'll be able to follow the instructions.

By mistake the language has been changed, how do I change the language of Garmin back to english?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (the spanner symbol at the bottom right corner)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
  • There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • To change the voice language to English press VOICE and select an English speaking voice
  • To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English, or American English if you're in the USA
If the text language is already in German you probably won't know which is voice, text and keyboard. The German word for German is Deutch so when you see this beside one of the items you'll know this is the one to change the text language. This should solve your problem.

I can't select text language and keyboard language Only the voice language can be change


For Garmin anyway: Make sure you have latest software first.
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.
To change the text language:
  1. Touch Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right
  6. Touch the up arrow until American English appears2
  7. Touch American English
  8. Touch OK
  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.
Note 1 - In some cases, if there are Custom POIs loaded to the device then it may be the first option at the top.
Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language

How do I change the language setting from egyptian to english on my garmin nuvi 200? Need help in changing the language to english on my garmin 250


select the wrech icon on main menu, then select the wrench icon again if given the option. Then select the lips icon, and you'll have 2 options - voice and text - and they won't be spelled in english, but go into both separately and scroll until you find the english choices. I had this problem and couldn't find the correct solution online. I fiddled for over an hour and finally figured it out.

Language on tomtom


You find Change Language from the Preferences menu from the main menu. You may need to switch on Show All Menu Options in order to see it. Again, this is from the Preferences menu.
