Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) Can you reconfirm the Model Number of the device you are working with (it looks like you may have an extra number in there)?
2) The AGE of the device (is it brand new)?


Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again,

I didn't see a response back here on this page, but I believe the model you MAY have meant to send is "Nuvi 2699-D". If that is the case, I have the step-by-step instructions for changing the TEXT language of the device below.


To change the text language, follow the steps below:

  1. Touch the Wrench (spanner) icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icons (this should be the MAIN screen - just after power up)
  2. Touch the down arrow
  3. Touch Lips icon
  4. Touch the second option from the top
  5. Touch the UP or DOWN arrow until you find the desired language
  6. Touch the desired language (English)
  7. Touch Save

The device should now be in the selected text language


That should get you back to English.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this process.

If this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for helping you with this question.
You should see some "smiley faces" or "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them.

Thanks, ***** *****
