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:

Changing htc s620 language from spanish to english

Alright... I am going to do my best here to provide non-language navigation.

If the screen is locked you will get:
Little response to buttons (Except Left Soft-Key, used with Z or * to unlock)
Just a clock on the screen with words above and below
Grey/dark screen brightness.

Providing the screen is unlocked:

Left Soft-Key (White bar above House)
2nd row last icon (Folder with gear)
7 Key
5 Key
Center Navigation button.
Select Language.
Left Soft-Key

These instructions should blindly take you to the language selection for languages that your ROM supports.

For other languages, a ROM Flash would be required, which is nearing outside of the scope of this site.

Please let me know if their are any other questions. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate.

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.
