Press the symbol that shows a wrench. Then press the symbol that shows a mouth. From there you should be able to find the english setting by scrolling up and down with the arrows.

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.
