Garmin powered up in wrong language! German vice English!

I have German language on my Garmin as soon as I batteried up! How do I get it to English? I did get it to the languages and chose one of the English prompt and clicked on it but still no change!

    Chose German by mistake. I hold the on/off button for 15sec then an exclamation mark in a triangle shows up along with the image of a thief. Reset does not show up

    You could try deleting all the languages, and reload only English. It shouldn't be able to speak German anymore.

Therecan be 2-3 choices under languages. One being the voice that speaks to you, and the other, the text on screen you read. Go back in and make sure that both are set to english.

MY GARMIN IS IN GERMAN . I CANT READ GERMAN . HOW DO I SET IT TO ENGLISH ?


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon in the bottom right of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) whichever your satnav has
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items on it; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking person to change the voice instructions to English.
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and change it to English or American English if you're in the USA

The TEXT LAGUAGE should be showing DEUTCH beside it (the German word for German)

This should solve your problem

By mistake the language has been changed, how do I change the language of Garmin back to english?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (the spanner symbol at the bottom right corner)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
  • There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • To change the voice language to English press VOICE and select an English speaking voice
  • To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English, or American English if you're in the USA
If the text language is already in German you probably won't know which is voice, text and keyboard. The German word for German is Deutch so when you see this beside one of the items you'll know this is the one to change the text language. This should solve your problem.

How do I change the language of my Garmin 275. It is set to English now, but if I go to Austria I need the letters in German


Simply go into Tools (the wrench symbol) then Settings then Language. If Austrian is not there use Garmin WebUpdater (free from the Garmin web site) to check for the latest software and upload various languages.
