I have a Garmin nuvi 255W (a gift) and while setting it up, my thumb hit the country "Venezuela" instead of the "United States." I can't get out of Venezuela. What do I do?


If your satnav is not in English go to paragraph 2 first.

1. On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press WHERE TO
  • Press ADDRESS
  • At the top of the screen you'll see the country VENEZUELA
  • At the bottom you'll see an icon CHANGE COUNTRY
  • Press CHANGE COUNTRY and select United States
2. If your satnav is not in English as a result of picking Venezuela
  1. Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the page showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) if your satnav doesn't have a settings icon
  3. Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
There are 3 items on this screen; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD

Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
All should now be back to normal.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...


The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

You will have to check 2 settings. First one. Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on the arrow 3 times. You should be on page: Preferences 4 of 6 by now. Tap on change language. Tap on English US. Tap on Yes.
Second one: Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences: Tap on the arrow once (You should be on: Preferences 2 of 6 by now. Tap on change voice. Select a voice which has English US or UK after the name (example: Lori, English US). You can also Select a voice, that has English US or UK, computer ( example: Simon, English UK, Computer), if you would like spoken street names, (provided your unit is capable of saying street names). Test and select. Go through voice preferences. Tap Done.
Note: although all units are capable of speaking instructions only some units are capable of speaking street names and the *computer* part is important for that feature to work.

Chosen a language and cannot return to English


remove your sd card and reset the unit by using a paper clip and insert it in the tiny hole on the bottom where it says reset, once it comes back up you will see a screen that you wont understand but click the tab in the lower right hand side then tap the center of the next screen (should be the map) then keep clicking the lower right tab on each page till you come to the language page, then select which ever language you want.

Changing Language from Italian to English


If you want Italian, then the unit will show Italian. If you want it to show English, then you set it up for English. You can't have Italian verbal directions on an English unit.

To change the unit back to English:
Press Wrench.
Press the button with the picture of gears on it.
Press Down arrow.
Choose second menu item from the top.
Press the middle of the 3 boxes on the right.
Press up arrow to find American or British English.

When you turn the unit on, you should see an icon on the bottom that looks like a wrench. Press this. On the next screen you should see an icon with a pair of lips and possibly a clock on it. Press this. You should now be able to change the language back to English. If you need any further help, please let me know.
