Turn on your GPS select Tools,then select Settings,then select Language,click on voice then scroll to the language you prefer,make sure it has TTS in brackets on the voice you select,those voices tell you the street names.Good luck.

HOW DO I CHANGE FROM THE DEFAULT SETTING OF CHINESE TO ENGLISH


  • Press TOOLS (The spanner Icon in the bottom right corner of the screen which says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press SETTINGS, the spanner icon, or (LOCALE the blue icon top right, on some models which don't have a SETTINGS icon)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
  • This will take you to a page with 3 items. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD.
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English
If you need to change the voice language press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country. If you need to change the keyboard to english Press KEYBOARD and select English.

I know if the text is in Chinese you won't know which icon is which but by pressing each of them in turn you'll get to select English for each.

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.
