How do I factory reset Garmin nuvi


I found it online, please carefully follow the steps :

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or Favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your Favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so here.

• Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power

• Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil

• Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON

• Release the power button when the device powers ON

• You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays

• Touch Yes (If text language is not in English, this is the button on the right )

The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

No sound


Turn the volume up. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" button on the "Where to?" or home screen. Move the slider for the volume up.

Unmute the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" icon again. Uncheck the "Mute" option, if it is currently checked.

Make sure the voice is not faulty. The navigation instructions are provided by a voice.To verify whether or not the present voice is faulty, you must switch the voice. Power on the Nuvi and tap the "Tool" icon. Tap "Settings" in the Tool menu. Tap the "Language" option and tap the language you want. Then select another voice to use. Now go back to the home screen and enter an address into the "Where to?" option. See if you can hear sound now.

Update the Garmin Nuvi with WebUpdater. Download and install WebUpdater from the Garmin website (see Resources). Launch WebUpdater on the computer, and connect the Nuvi to the computer with the USB cable. The software will detect the Nuvi and locate all updates for the device. Confirm that you want to update the device when prompted and WebUpdater will download the updates to the Nuvi.

Reset the Garmin Nuvi. A master reset will restore the Nuvi to its factory configurations and delete all favorites and waypoints that have been added. Power off the Nuvi and unplug it from any power source. Hold your finger down on the bottom right corner of the Nuvi screen, at the same time power the device back on. When asked "Do you really want to erase all user data?," remove your finger from the bottom corner of the screen and tap "Yes." The device will reset and sound should be restored.

How do i restore my garmin nuvi 205 to its original factory settings? i have selected a foreign country by accident as default


With the satnav turned off press the bottom right corner of the screen and turn it on. This brings up an option to reset it. There may be an easier solution however that will not lose you your favourites etc. I presume the problem is that it's in a different language and you want it back to English. Resetting it will not do this. To get back to English;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol on the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) This may take some trial and error if it's in a foreign language but should be possible)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner icon) or LOCALE (the blue icon) on some models that don't have a settings menu)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD. Press each one in turn and select English or American English if you're in the USA. With the VOICE setting you may have to select a name rather than English. If so select the name of a person from an English speaking country.

I hope this solves your problem.

There is a easy fix. Try going into your Tools Menu then Language. Go to Voice and make sure that one is selected.

you can also do a reset. Turn the unit off. Hold you finger in the bottom right corner of the screen then turn the unit on. Keep your finger in the corner until you see a prompt asking if you want to erase all user data. It may take a few try's to get the reset right.

My garmin nuvii 200 is stuck on a foreign language


Ah ha, someone decided to play a little joke with your Garmin. (I've done the same with someone else's cell phone; set it to Portugese and they'll search for days to correct it!) Fortunately, all of the Garmins I've played with are typically icon driven menus. I'll assume you touched the wrench icon in the lower right corner to get into the setup display. From there, you should see icons for 'Map', 'System', 'Time', etc. If you don't see the 'Language' icon, use the down arrow to go to the next screen. If that doesn't help, I would do a factory reset and that should take you back to the factory settings.
