    Default QWERTY keyboard?

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know if you can change the keyboard layout to QWERTY on NUVI devices?

    Thank you,

    Earth

    A little tinkering helps:
    Go to <GPS Drive Letter>:\Keyboards, edit en_US.kbd, replace the following line <group name="QWERTY" priority="1" wide_screen_only="true"> by <group name="QWERTY" priority="1" wide_screen_only="false"> and <group name="ABCDE" priority="0" wide_screen_only="false"> to <group name="ABCDE" priority="0" wide_screen_only="true">.

    That will do the trick!

    What model Nuvi do you have?

    Some models (eg 255W) allow you to chose QWERTY or ABC.

    The 1250 does not give you a choice - ABC only.

    Default Enable Garmin Nuvi 1200 QWERTY Keyboard

    This may help others.

    I have modied many nuvi keyboard files to:
    QWERTY, Upper case only, reversed etc.
    The attached QWERTY file works on my nuvi 1250.

    "en_US.kbd" is stored on the GPS in the \Keyboards folder. Please rename or copy the original file to say "en_US._kbd_original" for archiving.
    Copy the the attached unzipped "en_US.kbd" file to the same \Keyboards folder.

    Ensure you have the appropriate keyboard selected - from the startup screen:
    Tools > Settings > Language > Keyboard > American English > Return (3 times)

    scubadoo thanks for the mod. Now my 1250 has querty But i noticed there is a small lag when I press the buttons. Is there anything in your coding/moding to help remove this lag?

    If you run webupdater you have qwerty keyboard.
    First run webupdater and then look if you can change.
    On Garmin site also write that nuvi 1250 support only 2Gb SD card but we all know that nuvi 1250 suppoert 16Gb SD card
