I have the nuvi 205W series in a foreign language and can't get it back to english

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a SETTINGS symbol.
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn. The VOICE will give you the option to select a voice by name and country. Select one that's from an English speaking country to get the voice prompts in English.

Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

Press KEYBOARD and Select English. This should solve your problem.

How do you enter an address into the favorites ?


follow the steps below:

  1. Click "Where To?" on the touchscreen.
  2. Select "Address."
  3. Enter the address on the screen using the on-screen keyboard. As you type, it will narrow the options down for you until you see the correct one. Select the address by tapping it with your finger.

Good luck.

Unable to watch R or NC17 movies as we don't have the parental control code. Also every option keeps jumping unable to select button or options etc

try this:

when it asks for pass code, do this:
press 'select' button --> 7444 --> enter new pass code --> re-enter new pass code

movie should start.
'7444' deletes previous pass code.

hope this helps :D

Reboot with new hd

Try Checking if your motherboards bios will recognize the hard drive. If not, Then the hard drive is probably damaged.

To access The bios, Most Motherboards open the bios when you press the delete key

If you have two or more hard drives then the settings of the jumpers eg. Slave,Master,Cable Select.
Because they might be conflicting with each other.

I had the same problem, But I tried installing XP Home edition on my secondary hard drive and it works.
But i need to insert my xp home install disc to get it the bios to recognize that windows is installed otherwise it goes " insert system disk and press enter"
