All you need to do is go to Tools " the little box icon" > Settings "the wrench" > Language "the lips" , in this menu you will be able to change the languages.

Hope this helps!

How to garmin hard reset?

you do realize humans answer these qusetoins.. "how do I..." sounds a whole lot more normal.

for the 1400 series devices you power it on while holding the lower right corner of the touch screen. It should say "do you really want to erase all user data?" and you just say yes.
This can solve weird issues but will erase all your data and will never change the maps. Also sets all settings to the default.

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.
