How do i change the interface option to "host" or "Garmin


I ran into the same problem. I then searched many websites and found some good info at: http://forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php?t=11571. But, in the end, I simply changed USB cabels and the thing worked. So try changing your USB cable first, then go to the above website if you are still having trouble.

How to Perform a Hard Reset of your Garmin Nuvi 885T

Does your Garmin Nuvi 885T Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

There are two solutions to this problem; sometimes either one fixes all problematic symptoms and sometimes they need to be used in tandem.

My previous Garmin Nuvi 885T tip explained how to install new software into the device and where to get the software from. This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior after firmware updates. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit. It's also one of the first things that Garmin will have you do when contact tech support regarding quirky unit behavior.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 885T.

I hope that helps.

How to Unfreeze or Fix your Problematic Garmin Nuvi 885T GPS


96d7dca.jpg
c60aa96.jpg

Does your Garmin Nuvi 885T stop or freeze up?
Is the touchscreen unresponsive or stopped working?

As with most magic devices around us nowadays, there is a brain inside these units called 'firmware'. Over time, for whatever reason they become confused and stop operating the way they did when new.

The solution for these problems is to replace its internal instructions with new ones, called 'reflashing the firmware'.

This is an easy, automated process made simple by downloading and running some software from the Garmin website. A discontinued product, you can still find it here.

Download their software, and then run the file. You will see this screen (except it says 4.70 now):

Click the NEXT button and you are almost done.
Follow the prompts and soon your NUVI 885T will have all new software and should be running smoothly again.

Now that you have upgraded the software of your unit, you might consider performing a hard reset of the device. Please see my second tip for the Garmin Nuvi 885T for step-by-step instructions on how to do this.

I hope that helps.
