Want to change my Nuvi Garmin 255 from spanish to English??


  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the bottom right corner of the page with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) I know this might take a little trial and error since it's in Spanish but should be possible.
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner icon).
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
To change the voice prompts to English press VOICE and select an English voice.
To change the text to English press TEXT and select English or American English if you're in the USA
If you press the KEYBOARD icon also select English

This should solve your problem

How do I change the language mode from spanish to english? the garmin nuvi 1400 series


  • On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's a TOOLS icon (Picture of a spanner.) Press it.
  • Then press SETTINGS, (the spanner icon) or on some models LOCALE (Blue Icon at the top left corner) replaces the SETTINGS icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • On this page you'll see 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select ENGLISH
To change the voice language press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice
If you need to change the keyboard layout press KEYBOARD and select English

If the text language is in Spanish you won't know which icon is which but press each one in turn and you can change each to English. This should solve your problem.

My garmin nuvi 255 is in porchugese and cant get it to english.


Here's the link for the manual (in English). (Click here)
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

Although the manual says it's for the nuvi 205, it should be the same for your nuvi 255.

The instructions to change the language are on page 35 of the manual.

You may be able to use the Yahoo online translator to translate the Portuguese words to English - to change the language.

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
