At the startup screen press the little wrench at the bottom of the screen. Follow the menu given there and you can change the voice. Yes there should be a French version there.

SOURCE: Changing Language from Italian to English

If you want Italian, then the unit will show Italian. If you want it to show English, then you set it up for English. You can't have Italian verbal directions on an English unit.

To change the unit back to English:
Press Wrench.
Press the button with the picture of gears on it.
Press Down arrow.
Choose second menu item from the top.
Press the middle of the 3 boxes on the right.
Press up arrow to find American or British English.

I accidently changed the language on my 205 series. I think its French but am not sure. How do I get it back to English?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (The spanner symbol) in 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 icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If it's in French you won't know which is which but it will show the language beside the TEXT LANGUAGE icon. Francais is the French word for French. To change the voice language press VOICE and select an English speaking name. To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

This should solve your problem.

I have a Garmin 265w and the writing is in french and I want it in english How do I reset it back to defult there is no small hole in the bottom of it


Resetting the satnav will not change the text language. Below are details on how to change it.
  • On the page that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's an icon of a spanner in the bottom right corner. Press the spanner.
  • Press SETTINGS (another spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
  • This takes you to a screen with 3 items. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • You may have to use trial and error to find which of these is TEXT LANGUAGE but when you press text language you can select English or American English if you're in the USA.
The French word for French is Francais and this should be shown beside TEXT LANGUAGE. I hope this solves your problem.

How do I change the language,back to English,Canada.it is in a another language,and I can't change it


  1. Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE on models that don't have SETTINGS
  3. Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This brings you to a page with 3 items. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
To change the VOICE to an English speaking voice press VOICE and select an English voice.
To change the TEXT LANGUAGE to english press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English.

If you want a specific voice and it doesn't work it may have become corrupted. If this is the case download and install WEBINSTALLER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
Connect your satnav to your computer and run Webinstaller. It will update your software and when it's finished it will give you the option of downloading extras. These include voices. Select the ones you want and they will be downloaded to your satnav. You'll need to select the voice you want again as described above.
