Hello,

Try performing a soft reset or a hard reset to the unit.
The soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power back on.
A hard reset is done by pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while the power is off and then pressing the power button on. A pop up will appear asking to confirm the reset.
The hard reset will erase the user data, so it is advisable to save the data if possible.
Installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest update will resolve most issues.
download the latest version of WebUpdater software

The touch screen may need recalibration.
This can be done by pressing and holding the top left corner of the screen will powering on the unit.
Keep pressing the top left corner of the screen until the calibration screen appears.
Use a stylus or the round back part of a pen to press the dots to calibrate.
Once the calibration is done the unit will continue to boot up showing the Garmin screen.

OK..your touch screen was jammed or not working and you did reset via code *2767*3855# then the phone restarted with the calibration cross....you tapped the cross but nothing is happening.......what to do? first shutdown the phone remove the battery for 30 sec also remove the simcard put the battery again start the phone when the calibration screen pops up tap on the cross here you must feel the tapping is working by feeling a light vibration of the phone.....then tap on the lower bar of the screen which has color (light gray) different than the calibration screen the cross will move to another corner......repeat this for all four corners then you should see and OK on the bar to save and exit to the normal screen........done

My touch screen doesn't work. i tried to calibrate it but it doesn't even go into calibration screen. please let me know how i can fix it. thank you


Since the touch screen is not working, what you have to do is to reset the device. To reset the device, turn it off and on to see if it does the job. If that does not do the job, then hold down the power off/on button for about 10 seconds, the device restarts, that way it should work, but if it does not still work, the only solution is for you to jeep calibrating the screen continuously till you get it done.
The proper process to calibrate your screen is for you to:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. press your finger on the upper left corner of the screen (that is before powering on),
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi,
  4. Continue to hold on to the touch screen with your finger for about 30 seconds or more till the white calibration screen comes on(white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen information.
Try it several times till you get it to work. It does not just work the moment you try it, you have to try it over and over again.

I recommend attempting a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 885.
Then I would upgrade the system software to the latest version. This often brings back unresponsive Nuvis.

Perform the Hard Reset
  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot.
Upgrade the System Software

The upgrade software is a download available from Garmin. Installation steps are detailed here.

I hope that helps.

Remove the Screen protector from the device screen and then calibrate the screen with the stylus.

If the issue still persists, perform the Soft Reset on the device.

1. Use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus.
2. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device .
3. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.
4. All data on your device should be retained.

If the issue still persists, perform the Hard Reset on the device.

1. Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
2. While holding Power, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device.
3. If you see a progress bar, keep holding the Power button.
4. Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
5. You'll see a screen that asks: Erase all data? YES = "up" button NO = any other button. Press UP on your 5-way navigator to complete the hard reset.

Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Note: A hard reset does not delete the current date and time. It does restore other settings to the factory default.

Have you tried performing a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit, then turning it on again?

How about a hard reset?

With the unit powered off, hold your finger on the upper right- hand corner of the touch screen and tap the power key. Continue to hold your finger on the screen until you get a warning message. Tap "OK" to reboot the GPS.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Cant get out of screen alignment program


OK, Now anyone watching this forum can hear the truth. Well start with how to get out of the designator, however this will make the screen out of alignment by about 2mm. tap on the corner targets until you get to the center one. Try tapping off to the side top or bottom of the target further and further away until the program exits.
To fix the problem first try using the corner of a piece of paper and run it along underneath the plastic covering the edges of the touch screen. Use as much force as you can without creasing the paper. Do NOT press down on the touch screen!
Other than that the reason why you can't tap on the center of the last target is either a marked or damaged screen. Look at your screen carefully and identify any smears, marks or fingerprints. Clean these using a soft cleaning solution (such as for camera lenses etc.) and try the designator again. If this does not work look for scratches. If these are found in the area of the target then sorry, but you can never designate your PDA again.
