Resolved Question:

How do I get back to the English language on my etrex 10. While getting familiar with the ins and outs, I have foolishly switched it to Russian which I am ignorant about.

Hi, my name isXXXXX will assist you with your Garmin Etrex10.
The easiest way to get it back to English is to do a Master Reset.

To perform a Master Reset:

  1. Power off device
  2. Press and hold Menu and Enter (joystick pressed in)
  3. Press and release Light while continuing to hold Menu and Enter
  4. Select Yes once the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears

The eTrex is now reset. Leave the device outside with a clear view of the sky for a minimum of 20 minutes to acquire satellite data.

Hi Randy,


I have tried leaving the power button OFF, then pressing the Menu and joystick, at the same time pressing then releasing Light. All I get is a Russian menu in the display.


I have tried the above with the power button ON, but with the same result. What next?

Let me know if you are able to get this done, if not we can try another option.

Hello again Randy,


I tried the above again, but no luck, just menu with a central block with three words across it, in Russian of course.


What next?
