You didn't say what manufacturer your device is, but usually if you co to their web site youcan down load the language. I had the same problem on a iQue3600 and just did a hot sync with the language I wanted. Worked fine.

I bought a garmin gps on black friday but it is in spanish setting but i want language in english


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol bottom right corner on the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE on some models (Blue symbol in top right)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
This will take you to a screen with 3 items on it; TEXT LANGUAGE, VOICE and KEYBOARD
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice

I realise you may not be able to read the screen if it's in Spanish but by pressing all 3 you'll get the right settings.

Also if you have difficulty finding the screen with the TOOLS icon go to where you can see the map and press the MENU button in the bottom centre of the screen. This will take you to it.

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 tomtom is in spanish and need to change to english


1) Use the translation service at:

http://ets.freetranslation.com/

to give you some idea of what the menu options are so you can change the language back to English.

OR

2) Look at the manual and work out how you do a hard reset and then you can start over and select English.
