I do not have this particular model, but I am sure the fix is the same.

Go into the setup (press the screen when a map is showing)
Press the Blue Wrench (this is "change preferences")
Use the right arrow tro scroll to the screen with the flags icon. You can change your language there. As you can see, there is a lips icon which changes the voice; that is why you can have the voice and text in different languages.

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a SETTINGS symbol.
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn. The VOICE will give you the option to select a voice by name and country. Select one that's from an English speaking country to get the voice prompts in English.

Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

Press KEYBOARD and Select English. This should solve your problem.
