Hi,

On the very first screen after the GPS boots there will be an icon of a wrench at the bottom right of the screen. Press that Icon and scroll through the menu and you will find a language setting.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Want to change my Nuvi Garmin 255 from spanish to English??


  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the bottom right corner of the page with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) I know this might take a little trial and error since it's in Spanish but should be possible.
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner icon).
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
To change the voice prompts to English press VOICE and select an English voice.
To change the text to English press TEXT and select English or American English if you're in the USA
If you press the KEYBOARD icon also select English

This should solve your problem

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.
