Question: My nuvi 850, 855, 860, 865, 880, or 885 is freezing up or will not boot up past the Loading Maps screen.....
Answer: If your nuvi 850, 855, 860, 865, 880, or 885 is experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • The touch screen is no longer responsive and the unit appears to be locked up
  • The unit will turn on however freeze at the point where it indicates that it is Loading Maps...
  • The unit takes five minutes or longer to be recognized by your computer as a mass storage device
A software update is now available for you to update your nuvi to correct these issues. Please use our WebUpdater program to install this update.
Please note: Due to this problem, it may take up to five minutes before your computer will recognize your nuvi as a mass storage device. This software update will correct this issue as well. //changed this line from 'solution1description.innerHTML' to use getElementById //to prevent FF warnings. They both appeared to work, but this is cleaner. solution = document.getElementById('solution1description').innerHTML; Last modified on: 12/21/2009

I just did the supposedly latest softwaqre update for my Garmin Nuvi 885T and now I can't even turn it on... Nothing happens!!! If I plug it into my computer again the GARMIN logo comes on but doesn't go any further. If I go back to the web updater it doesn't show up as a device. When I did the original update it found my device and serial number etc and did the update but now I get NOTHING !!!1
