SOURCE: I just turned my Garmin

What you want to do is a factory reset to clear the user data.

1. Turn the unit off.
2. Place your finger in the lower-right corner of the screen.
3. Keep your finger there and turn on the unit.

You will be asked if you want to erase all user data. Select yes. Your Nuvi will restart and ask you the country information again.

SOURCE: same- how do you reset the default country?

Achieve global reset by pressing down on the bottom right corner of the touch screen (i used a pencil eraser) while restarting the GPS. You will default back to factory settings and can re-select your language of choice then.

This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.

  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right

  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.

Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language

Unable to turn on internal speakers. When I go to audio setup, states to hit enter to make changes. Hit enter and automatically exits setup?


This set does have a hard reset which is done with the original Mitsubishi remote, confirm actual model number and I will tell you how to do it.

It will return the set to the condition it was when new in the box, all labels on inputs will be gone, set should then come on channel three in AIR band; YOU HAVE TO AUTOPROGRAM it and put into cable band if using that.

Let me know model number.

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W GPS?


What do you mean, "change the country"? The unit came with maps for the country in which it was originally sold. If you want to get maps for other countries, they are available for purchase at www.garmin.com or your local GPS retailer.

I tried to download MS Paint from control panel/add/remove windows components but when i click on add/remove windows components a message appears stating that "SETUP WAS UNABLE TO OPEN INFORMATION FILE...


1. Open a cmd line
2. start
3. then click on run, type "cmd" in the box then ok.
4. When the cmd box pops up c:>
5. type: c:>\windows\inf\sysoc.inf
6. when the note pad window pops up scroll down till you see the line:

TabletPC=tabletoc.dll,TabletSetupProc,Tabletpc.inf,HIDE,7

It would be wise to save the "TabletPC=tabletoc.dll,TabletSetupProc,Tabletpc.inf,HIDE,7" string to replace if anything goes wrong.

Just cut and paste in word etc and you can just paste it back in the sysoc notepad if anything weird happens, OR

7. Simply highlight this then delete it. Now hit save in the file option tab. Close the window and now you should have access to the change or delete files in the control panel..

if this works for you let me know

It will give you the most recent state, but to change it, look on the bottom row for the button labeled "Change State/Country." That outta do it.
