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.

Turn unit on, hit i agree when prompted. Push tool icon in lower right hand corner. Then press settings icon, scroll down to language, there it have voice, text, and key board, you may be able to hit restore in the bottom right corner or you can set each seperatly. If its in Portugese it will say Deinicoes not settings, and Idioma is language, then texto for text. Restaurar is restore. Sim is yes.

Garmin uses picture icons for most of the settings. When you forst turn the unit on you will see a magnafine glass map speaker and wrench. the wrench is tools press that. the next set of icons you will see another wrench that is settings press that. The next set of icons there will be a pair of lips that is language press that. The next screen is harder this is the language screen the upper left blue button is voice, the spoken directions, the upper right is text, the one you need to change, the lower left is keyboard. Select the text button, the languages are alphabetical so scroll up to american english, the screen will refresh then press ok.
The other solution is to do a hard reset. It sounds like you got this unit used or a floor model that someone changed the language on. It might be in your best intrest to reset to clear all saved info that others have input.
