  • Fenix 5x + Chinese Language

    Hey guys,

    Just loaded a map of Taiwan into my watch and all I get are these diamond shaped symbols. No Chinese text.

    Does anyone know how I can enable Chinese? Surely, the watch being made in Taiwan, it's got to be possible, no???

    I did a quick Google search and lots of people are complaining about it. I think I also see people with custom firmware?? Not sure if I trust that.

    Thanks!


    EDIT:

    Just spoke to someone at Garmin and they told me that a Chinese version of the firmware is required for Asian languages, which requires an Asian version of the watch. The rep did tell me that Garmin is also open to ideas and that as users submitting ideas gets more eyeballs than anything a rep can add to their notes. So, if you are at all interested in getting Asian language support, submit the idea here: http://www8.garmin.com/contactUs/ideas/ If enough of us get the idea in, they'll add it.

        Thanks for submitting your ideas to Garmin.

        Apparently there are hardware limitations here, something a firmware upgrade won't fix. Unfortunately, from what I can see, we are stuck with no language support on North American devices. Real sh**y.

        We can only hope.
