Re: no english

Telephone Tomtom customer service. Let them walk you through the fix. The rep I spoke was terrific. She walked me through the process and in less then 2 minutes I was back in the English language.

Merry Christmas to all

How can I change the language on screen? i dont understand the extrange languge on it to bring it back to english, thanks

So you've got that brand new shiny TomTom, turned it on, and .... OOPS! ... somehow you've selected the wrong language. Suddenly the entire interface is (literally) in some foreign language and you can't figure out how to get back to English. This has happened to quite a few people recently, so here is a short tutorial on how to get back to US English.TomTom Main MenuIf the device is currently turned on and you are anywhere but the primary map/driving view, it might be helpful to turn the device off. Then you can turn it back on to get yourself to the map/driving view. Now click anywhere on the map to take you to the Main Menu. Depending on the language you picked and your device, it should look something like the image on the right. Click on the wrench icon (highlighted in red here) which will take you to the 'Change Preferences' menu.TomTom Change LanguageNow that you are in the Change Preferences menu, keep tapping on the right arrow button to cycle through the menu until you see an icon with three flags on it. That is the 'Change Language' button. Click on that button to bring up a list of the languages installed on your device.TomTom English USUse the arrow keys up and down to find your language, likely 'English US' for most readers of this site. A dialog will appear asking "English US?" at which point you will say 'Yes'. Presto, change-o, you are back in busines

How do i get into English on the Garmin GPS


All nuvis should have a full language database, so to switch from your current language to English all you would have to do is go. Tools > System > Language > Change all options to "American English" or " English". This is the same process for switching back to your old language and choosing a new one.

Hope this helps!

I have set my Garmin Nuvi 205w in turkish rather than english. I have tried to reset it by holding the on/off switch for 8 secs but it hasnt given me the option of languages.

Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol on the page with Where To and View Map)
Press SETTINGS (The Spanner Symbol) or LOCALE on models that don't have settings(Blue Symbol)
Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This will bring you to a page with 3 items VOICE LANGUAGE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the voice language press VOICE LANGUAGE and select a name of an English speaking country.
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and change to English
This should solve your problem

How can I switch it back to English language?

At the base of the device there is a reset button ( a small hole ) You could try to press the button .
the device will reset all its settings back to factory settings.
This way you should be able to go back to the menu and select the language you want again.
