Hi all,
Sorry if this question has been asked. I searched but couldn't find the answer. I may be asking the question wrong. So...

I picked up a Nuvi 275T for my back and forth to work vehicle (good price, can't complain).

On the maps it shows the speed limit for the road your on. However, it shows the American style speed limit sign. Since I currently live in Europe, I find this quite annoying to my obsessive compulsive nature.

Is there a way to change it to the European style? If not, is there a way to create the icons myself and load them into the garmin system files, and where would those files be?

Thanks a bunch.

Unfortunately it coded into the firmware, however I thought the style changed with the country you are travelling in. Can you post a screen shot of these American style signs?

Here's a product screenshot that shows the sign:

I found a thread on Gpspassion about it, finally. I think if I do a hard reset, and choose UK as my starting point, it will give me the European signs.

If I do that, do you know if I will have to reload my map updates and speedcam data?

Nevermind, I figured it out.

I did a hard reset and chose UK as my location. I'm not in the UK, but I wanted English as the language.

It now shows the European Style speed limit sign, and I didn't lose any of my updates or favorites.
