You have to go under Menu, then scroll to Settings, then scroll to System, then scroll to Language. Then you can scroll through the list of supported languages until you find the one that suits you.

When I first started my Garmin 255W I chose the wrong country? How do I switch the language format to English?


  1. Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen which shows VIEW MAP and WHERE TO)
  2. Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings symbol
  3. Press LANGUAGE (the Lips symbol)
You will see a screen with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the voice to english press VOICE and select an English voice.

If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W?


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

I've charged up my Garmin forerunner 405 for the first time and it's stuck on the language setting page. I can scroll through the languages, but can't press enter to select the Language ("English")??...


It looks like you have so called cold push button. In fact there is nothing to do with push button as the fault is in contact or in microchip, but that's a long story to explain. You probably would be able to fix it with my help, but as I understand, your Garmin is brand new and still under the warranty, so, there is no reason to open it yourself and loose the warranty. My advise is to go back to the retailer who sold it and ask to change it for the new one.

Rate me, please.

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)
