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.

How do I change the language mode from spanish to english? the garmin nuvi 1400 series


  • On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's a TOOLS icon (Picture of a spanner.) Press it.
  • Then press SETTINGS, (the spanner icon) or on some models LOCALE (Blue Icon at the top left corner) replaces the SETTINGS icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • On this page you'll see 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select ENGLISH
To change the voice language press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice

If the text language is in Spanish you won't know which icon is which but press each one in turn and you can change each to English. This should solve your problem.

  2. Touch the Lips and Clock icon
  3. Touch the top bar next to the pencil with the letter A
  4. Touch the up arrow until you see American English*
  5. Touch American English
  6. Touch OK
The device should be in the selected text language.
*Note - If American English is not the language needed, please select the desired language.

B.If you need to change the voice language you need to change the voice:
  1. Touch the Tool icon
  2. Touch Locale
  3. Touch Voice
  4. Touch the Voice Language you would like to use
  5. Touch 'Ok'
  6. Touch and hold the Back button to return to the main "Where To" and "View Map" menu

Download the latest version of webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it on your computer. After it's installed you will get an option to download new voices. Select an english, american or any a voice from any english speaking country. When it's installed go back to para B and repeat to get an english voice selected.
