On the main screen, select the wrench.
Then, select the Gears, which is the upper left box. This is "Settings". Hit the arrow down to go to the second screen.
"Language" is the second choice, select it and you'll be able to toggle to the language of choice.

I have a Garmin nuvi 255W (a gift) and while setting it up, my thumb hit the country "Venezuela" instead of the "United States." I can't get out of Venezuela. What do I do?


If your satnav is not in English go to paragraph 2 first.

1. On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press WHERE TO
  • Press ADDRESS
  • At the top of the screen you'll see the country VENEZUELA
  • At the bottom you'll see an icon CHANGE COUNTRY
  • Press CHANGE COUNTRY and select United States
2. If your satnav is not in English as a result of picking Venezuela
  1. Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the page showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon
  3. Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
All should now be back to normal.

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W?


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;} Stuff happens. Try this:

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

I pressed the wrong button and got the wrong language. How do I change it?


Go back to setup and try again. You could also see the manual, since every apparatus has its own way to do it (some won't speak 'foreign' languages at all).

Tap center of screen; tap the change preference tool on the bottom center; tap blue arrow next to the
tool (3) times, and that will bring you to the change language flags on the top left corner. After you enter the United States, you should be good to go. God Bless, Ron M.
