I just received a refurbished Garmin GPS in the mail and the language appears to be in Greek, rather than English. How can I change the language. At the moment it is useless to me.

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Yahoo

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Yahoo? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Web browser

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I don't know what to do, apart from sending the GPS back.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

That's all, thank you.

I have given up, not having heard any reply in many hours, and will just return the gps to the company that sent it. I have no technical expertise myself, and wish that I had been able to talk with you directly. I trust that my credit card will not be charged, under the circumstances, since I acted in good faith, with high expectations.
