Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try:

  • the upper part of the screen displays a drop-down language selection field;
  • set the operating system language to default.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If some function of the unit is not working fine , I would suggest you first to reset the unit back to its default settings, there should be a reset button on this unit..

My GPS only shows a "non" English language. How do I fix this?


Hi

You did not mention which gps systems do you have. Anyway giving you details of tom-tom gps language change instructions.

Change the language settings on your TomTom GPS device. If your TomTom GPS receiver is set to the wrong language, change the current language to the language of your choice. Perform a reset on the device as described in Step 1. When your GPS unit turns back on, tap the button in the lower right corner of the screen to continue. Tap the next screen to access the GPS receiver's main menu. Tap on the wrench icon to access the "Change Preferences" setting screen. Scroll through the "Change Preferences" screens until you see the "Change Language" icon, identified by three flags. Tap the "Change Language" icon and choose your desired language from the list. Depending on which language you chose, you may be asked to choose a new voice for turn-by-turn navigation.

For Garmin device:-

Try this below

Touch the Wrench icon which is located on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
Touch the Wrench icon
Touch the down arrow
Touch the Lips/Mouth icon
Touch the top right blue box
Touch the up arrow until you see American English
Touch American English
Touch OK
This should now be in English.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com
