SOURCE: i need to change the language on my my garmin nuvi

Garmin uses picture icons for most of the settings. When you forst turn the unit on you will see a magnafine glass map speaker and wrench. the wrench is tools press that. the next set of icons you will see another wrench that is settings press that. The next set of icons there will be a pair of lips that is language press that. The next screen is harder this is the language screen the upper left blue button is voice, the spoken directions, the upper right is text, the one you need to change, the lower left is keyboard. Select the text button, the languages are alphabetical so scroll up to american english, the screen will refresh then press ok.

The other solution is to do a hard reset. It sounds like you got this unit used or a floor model that someone changed the language on. It might be in your best intrest to reset to clear all saved info that others have input.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...


The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

I need to return my Garmin nuvi to a different


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

Click on the wrench tool button, then the picture of the sprockets which is system, then click the lips/mouth. Once there, you should be able to change the voice and text to English. Just click on one of the boxes to change it to your chosen language.

Got a solution for you:

You need to set the language properly in order to get the speech for street name

Go to setup --> Locale - Voice Language

Select language with TTS (Text-To_Speech) next to it:

ie:
American English-Jack (TTS )
American English-Jill (TTS)
Australia English-Karen (TTS)
