Garmin powered up in wrong language! German vice English!

Therecan be 2-3 choices under languages. One being the voice that speaks to you, and the other, the text on screen you read. Go back in and make sure that both are set to english.

How do I get the garmin 200W to communicate with me in English.

1. Press the icon with the wrench (tools menu button) on the main screen
2. Top left icon that looks like 2 gears is the Settings menu, press this
3. The menu items are System, Display, Navigation, Time, Language. So the 5th menu item down ... select this item.
4. You should then have 3 things to set, they are Voice, Text, Keyboard. When you press the buttons to the right of each of these 3 items you can select the language. The second language offered should be American English. Or if you don't want to set these 3 options, you can select the button at the bottom right. It is the "Restore" button and if you were in English it would say "Restore".

Hope that helps.
