My GPS only shows a "non" English language. How do I fix this?


Hi

You did not mention which gps systems do you have. Anyway giving you details of tom-tom gps language change instructions.

Change the language settings on your TomTom GPS device. If your TomTom GPS receiver is set to the wrong language, change the current language to the language of your choice. Perform a reset on the device as described in Step 1. When your GPS unit turns back on, tap the button in the lower right corner of the screen to continue. Tap the next screen to access the GPS receiver's main menu. Tap on the wrench icon to access the "Change Preferences" setting screen. Scroll through the "Change Preferences" screens until you see the "Change Language" icon, identified by three flags. Tap the "Change Language" icon and choose your desired language from the list. Depending on which language you chose, you may be asked to choose a new voice for turn-by-turn navigation.

For Garmin device:-

Try this below

Touch the Wrench icon which is located on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
Touch the Wrench icon
Touch the down arrow
Touch the Lips/Mouth icon
Touch the top right blue box
Touch the up arrow until you see American English
Touch American English
Touch OK
This should now be in English.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

That's funny!!
To be able to select the language of your choice, please follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
  3. Apply pressure in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  4. While pressing down on the screen, power on the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A large grey box with two small grey boxes with writing in them will appear.
  5. Touch the small grey box on the right.
  6. Your unit will restart automatically.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your nuvi.
Did this help? Good luck.

How do I input an address to get the directions


Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Different parts of the screen do different things depending on the mode you're in. When you touch "speed" the trip screen appears as you've already noted. The 'Driving" icon does nothing until you've asked the GPS to take you someplace.

After you enter a route the "speed" icon changes to "arrival" (which will still bring up the trip screen) and the 'driving' icon will change to "Turn In." Touching "Turn In" will bring up a list of turns along with a small portion of the map (showing that particular turn) anytime you've entered a route.

Note you can also press the green banner on top of the map when you have a route set. You'll see a list of just the turns and the distance to each. Touching each of those turn boxes will show you the split screen offered after you touched the "turn in" button.

Cheers

Screen goes blank


Maybe the setting of your video display was change to higher setting, and your screen cannot handle the said setting.

When a "safe mode" message appears during opeing, select that options, then at the desktop right click your mouse, chose properties, then setting, then change the screen resolution to lower range.
