When turning on the unit, hold these two keys down: MENU/MAP for about 5 sec then release. That should reset the unit.

What is the reset for and do i have to reset language


The RESET button on the unit will wipe out any personal information, like routes and destinations, that you have added to your GPS unit. All of your Favorites will be erased. You would normally only use the RESET button if your unit is locked up or "frozen", and nothing you do will get the unit to function. Once the unit resets, it will behave and be setup the way it was when you first took it out of the box and turned it on.

If you need to change the language that the GPS uses you just have to go to the SETUP menu. Then chose the icon for Language. The screen will change to a box that will show the current language, with an arrow on either side. Use the arrow to scroll to the language of your choice. Once you see that language you would choose the box underneath that has the word DONE in it.

If you need further information about the language function please let me know.

The screen is frozen and I can not get it to turn off


If you cannot get your unit to turn off it may be locked in the on position. Please follow the steps below to perform a soft reset on the device:
  1. Slide and hold the power key to the on position for 15 seconds
Once the screen goes blank you will be able to turn the unit back on and continue using the unit normally. To prevent the unit from freezing or locking up in the future, please ensure that your unit has the latest version of system software. Please see the following article for update instructions:

Wrong language on garmin oregon 400t


I called Garmin for this very same reason. The answer is; while your GPS is off place your index finger in the upper left of the screen, turn on the GPS, a screen will come up and ask if you want to clear the GPS (or something to that effect), say yes. (Yes is the top button) Then you can choose english. YAY!

Garmin 2720 lost sound


It sounds like the audio power amplifier is failing in the unit, it's kinda classic for an audio amplifier to fail when it gets hot, then work again when it cools down.

I'd suggest deleting the language you're using, then reload v7.2 firmware and the language. No reason why this should work, but it doesn't cost anything. If not you're looking at a $250 Garmin flat rate repair.

Magellan 700 sound problem


1. Search for the file ENG_F.SND sound on google or yahoo or any search engine.

2. Connect RM 700 to PC, and create folder name SOUND_EU on RM 700.

3. Copy the ENG_F.SND to SOUND_EU folder.

4. Disconnect RM 700 from PC.

5. Turn on RM 700, and go to Option, configuration, language, and choose English.

6. RM 700 will load sound file and turn off.

7. Turn on RM 700, if it keeps showing the initial screen, then connect the RM 700 to PC, and DELETE the ENG_F.SND from SOUND_EU. It should be OK after you disconnect RM 700 from PC and turn it on again.

GOOD LUCK!
NOTES: My screen indeed locked at first as covered in the last step, so expect that to happen. Don't worry if you never get to do step 5 and 6. Connecting the USB, deleting the SND file and restarting it works and the sound is back even without the file there.

This only fixes the Female voice along with the beeps and clicks. The unit goes silent again if you select the male voice but switching back to the female fixed that. I assume "_F" in the file name must mean female.

1. Turn unit off, by pressing and holding button on lower right side for 2 to 6 seconds until it goes off.
2. turn unit on, by pressing and holding same button for 3 to 8 seconds until the warning screen comes on (with the small "agree" box at the bottom of the screen. It may not say "agree" in a language you recognize, but either press it and "agree" or wait for it to go away.
3. next screen to appear should have a small "two ended open ended wrench icon"
4. Press the icon. The next screen will have 6 windows, the lower right will have red lips icon.(it is the "language icon")
5. Press this lower right icon.The next window will have two boxes in the upper right corner. one above the other.
6. Press the upper right box, and then use the up and down arrows to select the language you recognize in the language you want it to operate in.
7 having selected the language of choice, hit "back" as many times as you choose, to get to where you wish to operate...
Good Luck.... GB_C
