I need to change the language on my my garmin nuvi 1300 gps from chinse to english


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.

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;} Stuff happens. Try this:

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
