Hi!

I may not have the same version that you do, but I'll try to help you out. Since you are asking for help here, I assume you have changed the language on the menu interface, and not just the spoken language? If so, the pocedure is as follows on my Tom Tom:

* Tap the screen to get the menu.
* Tap the wrench to go to settings
* Tap the arrow ">" in the bottom right until you see an icon with three flags. On my Tom Tom that takes three taps, but that may vary derpending on wether you have advanced options turned on or not.
* Tap the flags to get the list of available languages
* scroll up or down until you find the language you want
* You should get a yes/no to confirm wether you want that language. If you hit the wrong language, press the red button.

If you just changed the spoken language, you should press the icon withthe lips in stead of the one with the flags, and then scroll left/right until you find a language you want.

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

Foreign language text on GPS device


Click on the wrench tool button, then the picture of the sprockets which is system, then click the lips/mouth. Once there, you should be able to change the voice and text to English. Just click on one of the boxes to change it to your chosen language.
