In British English all letters are greyed out except: c, f, n & p. In numerals only 0 is greyed out. All symbols [ !, ? etc] are all greyed out. Result is same in upper and lower case.
In Russian cyrillic only the letters ъ and ь are greyed out, but the same numbers and symbols are greyed out as in English.
The results appear to be the same for all keyboard layouts: QWERTY etc.
Hi, I’ve done all that but but hasn’t helped. In Language files I selected English and Russian, but the Other Files doesn’t contain the Nuvi keyboards, language text or anything similar: it only has a list of vehicle avatars.
When I rebooted as instructed exactly the same keys were greyed out. I then went back to Garmin Express and it no longer lists English and Russian in the language files, so those must have installed properly. Still no sign of the other files though.
I’ve now tried the hard reset several times. It didn’t work, but a pattern seemed to be emerging, so I took notes and the results are below.
Firstly, when I do the hard reset I never get the message at step 5. Instead the screen very briefly flashes white, then the Garmin logo reappears. When I then remove my finger from the screen there is no “Yes” message, but the device restarts. It clearly has done a hard reset though, because the settings have all returned to their defaults.
When restarting the device asks to choose a country location. I tried repeatedly in the UK & Russia. Here are the results:
Hard reset, Russia location.
Everything appears to work in cyrillic Russian.
But when I change to English and search in Address > Select Town in Россия:
Spell Town has same grey keys as before.
Search All has some [about 50%] letters & symbols greyed out, numerals are ok.
Change Country has all keys greyed out.
However when I simply use the Enter Search box all keys are working. When I search through Towns it also appears to be ok.
So in Russia location it works ok in Russian.
In Russian location but English language most keys work, except when searching via Address, which would be the most common search route.
Hard reset, UK location.
When I search in Address there is no town listed below “Select Town in”
When I select Spell Town all keys are ok. However whatever town I enter I always get “No marches found”.
So in UK location only some things work in English.
But in UK location when I try to use Russian most but not all keys are greyed out. However when I Change Country to Russia some keys are greyed out and some work.
Sorry to be so slow in replying. I've tried changing the keyboard to cyrillic and latin, but I still have problems. The best I can get it to work is by setting to Russian. That seems to work for Russian locations, however when I try to change country most of the cyrillic keys are greyed out again.

Yes I'm happy to wait. Please note that I'll be travelling for the next 10 days and will have very limited, if any, internet access. So I'm unlikely to be able to reply until Wednesday August 26.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
