Customer Question

I just bought a Garmin forerunner 235. I accidentally picked something other than English for the menu setting on start up. I cannot figure out how to reset to English. Help!

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The problem can be set to rights with a little effort.

Tell me: what word, or words, do you see on the screen of the Forerunner at this time?

If you don't know them just spell them out for me please. Thanks.

Please re-read my question. I set the default language incorrectly on initial start up. I'm not sure what language is showing up, but I can't read the menu. I need to do a factory reset so it asks me again what Language I want as the default.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 10 months ago.

If you would prefer to proceed to a total reset, rather than just figuring out the way through the menu (I know several languages well enough that I could help you do so), I'm willing to advise you toward that end.

Let me look up the Forerunner's factory settings reset procedure, and I will get back to you with an account of how to do it.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 10 months ago.

It turns out we will have to proceed the way I indiacated, regrettably: there is no way to do a Master Reset without using the devices menus.

So please tell me, just spell out one or two words, that the screen shows at present.

And I will direct you as to exactly how to proceed.
