multiple frustrations

Gregory Houck, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Even when the Nuvi885 works, it's a poor unit: --response is sluggish when typing in an address or a name, so sluggish you'll retype a number or letter because nothing happened and then two will appear on the screen and you have to backspace. Frustrating.

  • Summary: BE WARNED: I chose this for the MSN traffic, but this service is being cut by Microsoft! I will end up buying a FM traffic device after my MSN traffic expires. So I just bought a nuvi1490t.

BUYER BEWARE: Amazon Does Not Work With You on Exchanges

Bobcat44, Amazon
25 October 2009
  • Summary: I read though all of the information on the Garmin 88T and thought it would be a great GPS. When I received it I called MSN for my free three month trial and was told that MSN was not supported in my area. I was also told the $129.00 life time MSN package was no longer available.

returned 3 units - no more garmin

J. Davies, Amazon
11 October 2009
  • Summary: I recently made my first GPS purchase. Research and friends dictated that Garmin was the way to go. Looking at features I settled on the 885T model. The first one was purchased locally. Almost immediately it began to freeze up. Sometimes a simple on/off took care of the problem.

I will never buy Garmin again.

mruseless "mruseless", Amazon
6 October 2009
  • Summary: Have to send it back for replacement, because it keeps crashing. Tried a software update, and a hard reset. Still having problems. However, customer support has been good. They are setting up an RMA so I can get a warranty replacement. I will ammend this review if the replacement is free of issues.

Can't hear it.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: I had a nuvi 660 before and now have bought the 885T. I wish I had my 660 back. This unit must use a different system because it routes me different then my last one did. The biggest problem however is that you can not hear it. They must have reduced the wattage on the speaker and amp.

  • Summary: Installed device and began using it. Liked the product, but after a few days use, it began to fail. Every few minutes, the screen would freeze. Had problems with extreme wait times for Garmin service. Finally returned product.

Good Luck with Customer Service

Frank, Amazon
15 July 2009
  • Summary: Garmin customer service is among the worst I have ever encountered. My Garmin Nuvi bricked after the first week of use because Garmin downloaded a patch that rendered it useless. Garmin was very arrogant and condescending.

885t problems

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought the 885t 2 months ago and have returned 2 to Amazon due to defects. The first 885t had problems with the touch screen completely freezing up and I had to take the battery out to get it to restart. The second GPS started shutting down and rebooting on its own on several occasions.
