That is too bad. I have had a lot of complaints about BB selling units that have been returned.

Click on Tools (wrench icon)->Settings(wrench icon)->Language(lips)->Select the language you would like.

You can change the text, voice and keyboard layout here.

Cheers

How do I change the language mode from spanish to english? the garmin nuvi 1400 series


  • On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's a TOOLS icon (Picture of a spanner.) Press it.
  • Then press SETTINGS, (the spanner icon) or on some models LOCALE (Blue Icon at the top left corner) replaces the SETTINGS icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • On this page you'll see 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select ENGLISH
To change the voice language press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice
If you need to change the keyboard layout press KEYBOARD and select English

If the text language is in Spanish you won't know which icon is which but press each one in turn and you can change each to English. This should solve your problem.

I need to change from Spanish to English on my new Garmin 260W


That's funny. Guess you need to brush up on your Spanish!
Here's how to fix assuming you have a 260 or 260w:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.
To change the text language:
  1. Touch Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right
  6. Touch the up arrow until American English appears2
  7. Touch American English
  8. Touch OK
  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.
Note 1 - In some cases, if there are Custom POIs loaded to the device then it may be the first option at the top.
Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language
