==System Settings==

Switch on the Garmin Nuvi 250W and press the spanner icon at the bottom of the screen.

A screen will appear displaying the following options:
- System
- Display
- Navigation
- Time

In the bottom right of the screen is a down arrow icon. Press that icon and the following options are displayed:

- Time
- Language
- Security
- Map

Press the Language option. You should now see a screen where you can change the language.

Let me know if that doesn’t work.

    =Garmin diagnostics screen / reset= 

    When you're at the main screen, hold your finger on the time in the upper right corner for more than 5 seconds, and you'll get to an info screen, and back/next buttons lower right of screen.

    There's some sound diagnostics, and screen tests, and lots of info pages - including one with some battery status/statistics. To get out of the diagnostic mode, power cycle your unit...and when you do this, it will take some time to lock on to satellites.

    Have fun...

How do i restore my garmin nuvi 205 to its original factory settings? i have selected a foreign country by accident as default


With the satnav turned off press the bottom right corner of the screen and turn it on. This brings up an option to reset it. There may be an easier solution however that will not lose you your favourites etc. I presume the problem is that it's in a different language and you want it back to English. Resetting it will not do this. To get back to English;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol on the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) This may take some trial and error if it's in a foreign language but should be possible)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) on some models that don't have a settings menu)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD. Press each one in turn and select English or American English if you're in the USA. With the VOICE setting you may have to select a name rather than English. If so select the name of a person from an English speaking country.

I hope this solves your problem.
