Just bought a nuvi 1450. missed setting the country as USA. now it is in a foreign language (Uraguay, I think) and I cannot figure out how to reset it

Go into tools setting to language and set to American English and hit restore. Then I would go to the Garmin site and update your 1450. Make sure it is fully charged first, I will attach the like to Garmin.
Thanks for using FixYa

Lost the voice on my garmin nuvi

Go to settings, you will see blank box for language settings (where you tell it to use TTS or normal or other spoken language etc.) select language of your choice again. You will be all set. Nuvi tends to loose its voice settings sometimes.

My garmin nuvii 200 is stuck on a foreign language

Ah ha, someone decided to play a little joke with your Garmin. (I've done the same with someone else's cell phone; set it to Portugese and they'll search for days to correct it!) Fortunately, all of the Garmins I've played with are typically icon driven menus. I'll assume you touched the wrench icon in the lower right corner to get into the setup display. From there, you should see icons for 'Map', 'System', 'Time', etc. If you don't see the 'Language' icon, use the down arrow to go to the next screen. If that doesn't help, I would do a factory reset and that should take you back to the factory settings.
