    Yes, it was but l must that it's very hard not to see something about this written up in your manual. It would seem this has happened to many other people. So l just paid $9.95 for something that was pretty easy... am l pissed off yes because the manual should be telling the buyer that, not have to go online find out that you have to pay money, to fix a simple problem. What l would like to know is, does this money spent mean l have access to any future problems, because now l am a "TomTom Member"? would really like the answer to that question.

Bought a new 1490Lmt and hit the wrong language and can't get it back to English


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the screen that displays WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) As it's not in English this may find a bit of trial and error but it should be easy enough to find.
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol on models that don't have a SETTINGS icon)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD.
Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country. Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.
If you press KEYBOARD while trying to find one of the other 2 above just select English also.
This should solve your problem

Press Wrench.
Press the button with the picture of gears on it.
Press Down arrow.
Choose second menu item from the top.
Press the middle of the 3 boxes on the right.
Press up arrow to find American or British English.

I need to change from Spanish to English on my new Garmin 260W


That's funny. Guess you need to brush up on your Spanish!
Here's how to fix assuming you have a 260 or 260w:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.
To change the text language:
  1. Touch Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right
  6. Touch the up arrow until American English appears2
  7. Touch American English
  8. Touch OK
  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.
Note 1 - In some cases, if there are Custom POIs loaded to the device then it may be the first option at the top.
Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language

Garmin powered up in wrong language! German vice English!


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.

Garmin 350 sat nav stuck on wrong language can it be changed back to english


What have you tried to do to change it back? Have you tried changing the setting in the menu?
Press the wrench symbol and then the symbol with the lips.

There are 2 settings that need to be changed.
1. Text language (displays the text using characters of the chosen language)
2. TTS (text to speech - the actual speaking voices)
