My garmin nuvi 250 is now only in spanish - I want english


Hello, you should be able to achieve this by resetting the GPS since its default is English.

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Good luck

Good morning Vickie. With a device this new, I would suggest you have a conversation with the Garmin folks, e-mail or on the telephone. Here is the link: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us click on support and make your choice.

I don't think you can repair this yourself.

Nuvi 250- goes to blank screen when u hit SPELL


Sounds like corrupted firmware. Go to www.garmin.com and download their webupdater. Run it and connect a USB cable between your Nuvi and the PC. Let the webupdater look to see if there are any firmware updates. If so, install them. If not, let it reflash your current version.
