Switch on your device, tap screen once then tap change preferences, keep going on the arrow bar till you reach 8 of 8 on top screen. it should say in top left hand corner change language, tap this and change to your preference.

MY GARMIN IS IN GERMAN . I CANT READ GERMAN . HOW DO I SET IT TO ENGLISH ?


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon in the bottom right of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) whichever your satnav has
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items on it; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking person to change the voice instructions to English.
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and change it to English or American English if you're in the USA

The TEXT LAGUAGE should be showing DEUTCH beside it (the German word for German)

This should solve your problem

By mistake the language has been changed, how do I change the language of Garmin back to english?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (the spanner symbol at the bottom right corner)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
  • There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
  • To change the voice language to English press VOICE and select an English speaking voice
  • To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English, or American English if you're in the USA
If the text language is already in German you probably won't know which is voice, text and keyboard. The German word for German is Deutch so when you see this beside one of the items you'll know this is the one to change the text language. This should solve your problem.

Just got a tomtom xl 335 se and mistakely tap the germen language,and dont know how to change to american. please help


Hi, go through the menu options until you come across a symbol with 3 flags, when in this menu option you should then be able to change back to american, a bit hit and miss I know but try looking at user guide on the support option at http://www.tomtom.com/, or go to shop and use menu on another tomtom to follow on yours to get to right option.
If this helps please rate me

Language back to english


A. If it's the display language you need to change:
To change the text language:
  1. Touch the Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass, Map and Brief Case icons
  2. Touch the Lips and Clock icon
  3. Touch the top bar next to the pencil with the letter A
  4. Touch the up arrow until you see American English*
  5. Touch American English
  6. Touch OK
The device should be in the selected text language.
*Note - If American English is not the language needed, please select the desired language.

B.If you need to change the voice language you need to change the voice:
  1. Touch the Tool icon
  2. Touch Locale
  3. Touch Voice
  4. Touch the Voice Language you would like to use
  5. Touch 'Ok'
  6. Touch and hold the Back button to return to the main "Where To" and "View Map" menu
At this time your device should speak in the language you have set in step 5.
C. It's possible you won't have an english language voice installed. IF not connect the satnav to your computer. Download the latest version of webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it on your computer. After it's installed you will get an option to download new voices. Select an english, american or any a voice from any english speaking country. When it's installed go back to para B and repeat to get an english voice selected.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

Hi, just got my TomTom One and find that language used is German. My German is only fair and I would appreciate converting to American English. I did this to a unit in the store, but, of course, cannot...


I have a tomtom 510 and to change the language, I first tap the screen to bring up the first menu. Then tap "change preferences". Then tap the next page arrow until the "change language" option comes up.
