Question about Garmin nuvi 885T GPS Receiver
This procedure has been known to (but doesn't
always) delete your favorites so back them up beforehand: From the nuvi
drive, copy x:/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx to your backup location. After the
hard reset, copy current.gpx back to the same folder on the nuvi but
rename it temp.gpx (important). 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 (current.gpx is only a shadowed
backup of your favorites)
Power the unit off. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. Reset 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.
