    Can anyone help me get the language to English?

  • hscmgbk Feb 02, 2009

    I found the answer to the Language problem! I tapped the center screen; tapped the tool on the bottom center of the screen; tapped the blue arrow next to the tool three times which brought me

    to the "change language flags in the top left corner of the screen. "Praise the Lord" the search is over!

    Problem solved. Tap center of screen; tap tool to change preferences; tap blue arrow next to tool (3) times and that should bring you to the change language flags on the top right corner of the screen. Hope that does it for you. God Bless! Ron M.

Go to the web page below, set the translation from Swedish to English and type in the options that you see on each page.

http://freetranslation.paralink.com/

You should then be able to work out which option you need to reset the language to English.

It might take a bit of time but you will get there.

This reset will delete all user settings: Favorites, Recent destinations, etc.


This option can be found under Main Menu > Change preferences > Reset factory settings.

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.

I have a Garmin nuvi 255W (a gift) and while setting it up, my thumb hit the country "Venezuela" instead of the "United States." I can't get out of Venezuela. What do I do?


If your satnav is not in English go to paragraph 2 first.

1. On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press WHERE TO
  • Press ADDRESS
  • At the top of the screen you'll see the country VENEZUELA
  • At the bottom you'll see an icon CHANGE COUNTRY
  • Press CHANGE COUNTRY and select United States
2. If your satnav is not in English as a result of picking Venezuela
  1. Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the page showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon
  3. Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
All should now be back to normal.

When starting up hit wrong langauge. How to change country


Try to reset your tom tom gps device, that way your language will be back at the default language. To reset your tom tom hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, it will restart itself automatically, that way you will have to chose the language once again. Or you can simply remove the battery and reinstall it in once again. Or you can connect it to a computer and format the gps and download its software back on. That is a sure solution
You can also follow the steps below, but you have to be logical about the position where these options are in the language you mistakenly chose.
  1. Tap the screen to bring up the main menu,
  2. Tap change preferences,
  3. Tap the arrow in the bottom right corner until you see change language,
  4. Tap change language,
  5. Follow the instruction on the screen to confirm the language of your choice,
  6. Choose a voice.
That should do the job.

Hi rharris9,

After starting your TomTom , tap the screen . Scroll left or right if needed to find "preferences" . Once in Preferences , look for a 'lips' icon and it should also say underneath " Change Voice". Select that and you should be presented with a selection of voices and languages to choose from.

Good Luck
