You have a choice:

If you know the language being displayed but don't know what the screen options are saying then type the options into the translation service at:

If you can't work out the language then you can use the instruction manual to find out how to do a hard reset on the device. Usually involves poking the end of unfolded paperclip into the reset hole or something similar. The first thing it will normally ask you is to set the language.

How do i change the navigation screen language from japanese to english in Toyota Avensis 2006

The irony of this is that the handbook is in English
For Toyota Avensis from 2003:
My console has a screen with a row of buttons below it and a centre mounted knob (the enter knob)

press Menu (1st left of knob)
select SETTING from navigation menu (on screen)
oddly you need to read the foreign language to do this one)

turns out mine was in german so not too hard, third down IIRC

select LANGUAGE from SETTING end press ENTER (knob)
again, I guessed which was 'language' by trial and error

select Km or miles press knob

leave well alone lol

Let's face it, if it was in English we'd not need the instructions, just time.
Good luck (you'll need it)

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.

I have the nuvi 205W series in a foreign language and can't get it back to english

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a SETTINGS symbol.
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn. The VOICE will give you the option to select a voice by name and country. Select one that's from an English speaking country to get the voice prompts in English.

Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

Press KEYBOARD and Select English. This should solve your problem.

Pressed the wrong button when removing from computer and set it for a foreign language. Need to know how to set it back to English.

I'm not sure what language you have it in, but turn your mp3 player on, go down 5 times and select, go down 5 times and select again, english is the first selection on the next screen. If this does not work let me know so I can try to assist you more.

Press the check button and the right arrow button in this combination:
