Question about GPS Devices

1 Answer

I have a Nextar 3.5" Mod. S3 Navigation system. I swithed the LANGUAGE mode to Spanish from English. The device now cannot be changed back to English when selecting the Navigation mode. How can I get it back to English? I've tried numerous time to use the language selection mode to change back, but it stays on Spanish as mentioned above.

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.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

How to change language from Spanish back to English?




When you first switch on your device, you have to answer a few questions to set up the device. When these questions appear in the wrong language, it's best to soft-reset your device.

Devices which are reset by holding the On/Off button:
Press the On/Off button and keep holding it until you hear the TomTom start sound. This takes at least 15 seconds. Also keep holding down the On/Off button if your device switches off or shows the start-up screen.

Devices which are reset using a paper clip or pen:
Press the reset button using a paper clip or something similar for 15 seconds. Then press the On/Off button for at least 5 seconds.



To change the language on your navigation device, do the following:
  1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main menu.

  2. Tap Change preferences.

  3. Tap the arrow in the bottom right corner until you see the Change language button. Tap Change language.

  4. Tap on a language to select it. 1381_select_language_uk.gif

    Follow the instructions on the screen to confirm your language selection and choose a voice.

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
