Hello. If you still have the owners manual, you should be able to look in the language section and go throw it to know how to do the setting for the language you need. Good Luck.

Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (no antenna socket on i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the gold PCB flat wire and remove the section around the burn.
scrape a small amount of green off the gold flat PCB wire so you can solder a new wire to bypass the short. any 2.5mm insulated wire will do to bridge the gap you have just scraped away, there is plenty of room for a 1 inch wire.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

First of all the language was Finnish and not German. I managed to get a translation from Finnish to english for the word  kieli (Language).  Then i went to the system menu and selected kieli, then englanninkieli then pressed enter, this changed the language to english. I did not have to do a factory reset. Thank you for your trouble.
