I have finally figured out on my own how to change the printing to ENGLISH--
I just rec'd this for my birthday, and I find the booklet which came with the merchandise does not explain very much-- I think you could possibly include a better manual.

    Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...

    The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
    1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
    2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
    3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
    4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

    I need to change from Spanish to English on my new Garmin 260W

    That's funny. Guess you need to brush up on your Spanish!
    Here's how to fix assuming you have a 260 or 260w:
    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

    My husband bought a nuvi 200 series but now need to have it "speak" in English

    Press the Wrench symbol, then "Settings", then "Language".

    Under "voice" select an American English voice. Make sure you select American English for the text and keyboard as well.

    ****HELPFUL HINT**** Before you do anything with the Garmin unit, you might want to make a folder somewhere on your computer and name it something like NUVI CONTENTS. Then copy and paste or drag and drop, however you want to do it, all the contents of your NUVI. This way if you do something you didn't mean to, like delete a language, you can just put it back in.

    Now what you need to look for are 3 folders, one is the HELP folder which is pretty useless once you get the hang of the Garmin unit. As a matter of fact I never even used the HELP button on the Garmin unit, because it's so easy to use.

    The other folder is the VOICE folder, open it and start deleting the languages you are not likely to use or need. Make sure you DO NOT delete American English, unless you want to stick to British English. Of course I am assuming you need English, but regardless it goes for whichever language you want to keep. Assuming you are keeping American English these are the names of the files you need to keep in the VOICE folder english_american_.sum and English_American_.vpm.

    The last folder is the TEXT folder, open it and delete all the files if you want. American English is the default so it won't go away, but regardless you'll have a back up anyways...RIGHT? LOL

    I hope this helps you, and if you have any questions lay them on and I'll see what I can do for you. But I will say that I just bought my Nuvi back in April of this year so I am still learning a lot about it. I am working on tweaking the XML file so that it will ready more than 1 map on the SD, right now we are limited to 1 map per SD card.
