Wii skylanders is in French how do I change to English?


Although I do not have my games with me here at work, you will want to enter the settings: the French word is "param?tres."

Then you will enter language: the French word is "langue."

Then select the english option: the French word is "anglais."

I pulling these all from Google translate, but this should help you at least get started.

I have a Garmin 205 and I have tried everyway that I know to enter a state, city, street address for my trip. The unit will not give me an option to enter a state. I downloaded a users manual, but I don't...


This might be a long shot but I read some time ago that you must select American English as the language to have the option to change states. I know it sounds crazy. To change the language to American English:
Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol)
Press SETTINGS or LOCALE (which ever is on your satnav)
Press LANGUAGE
You'll get a screen with Text Language, Voice Language and Keyboard.
Press Text Language and select American English.
That might solve the problem.

Another person who had the same problem updated his map and software. That solved the problem for him. However it's chancy spending money if you're not sure it's going to work so I'd suggest updating the software which is free first. To update the software;
Download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
Connect your satnav to your computer and run the webupdater program. It will search for updates to your software.

If you decide to update your map you can find details on how to do so at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps
I hope one of these will solve your problem.

I hope one of these will solve your problem

Unable to change state on my Garmin GPS


Check the text language. Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Language. If the text language is not set to American English it assumes you are not in the USA for some strange reason. Press the Text Language Name and press the up arrow until you find American English. Select it and it should be ok.

I am flying to carolina from nh and when i get there how do i get gps to know where i am?


The satnav should automatically know where you are when it picks up the satellites. Before going ensure that you have the text language set to American English as if it's in British English you won't be able to enter a state in the address. To change the text language;
  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.

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.

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

How do I change langue


Depends on the region the phone was intended for use in. However, most software builds do include English! Backup your data, download SE Update Service from Sony Ericsson and reload the operating system. On first boot you will be prompted for the language you wish to use.
