The last firmware update Garmin issued for the 8x5 series was 4.70 on 12/28/2009.So Garmin Express may be downloading something on your 885, but probably not firmware.
To get started, download your free copy of Easy GPS.
The 2013.40 maps have been out for a week now for the Nuvi line and yet my Dezl still says maps are up to date despite the fact that it has City Navigator North America NT 2013.30 Truck - Map HT PA P, Oct 12 installed. I called Garmin and the rep assured me it's out but I don't believe that is the case if it keeps saying maps up to date with Garmin Express or with my Dashboard online. If you have installed Garmin Express, every time you connect your GPS to your computer, Garmin Express will start and update both Garmin Express and your connected GPS.
I wonder A) Why it doesn't say there is an update available in my dashboard and B) Why Garmin Express doesn't say there is a map update available (only says "device up to date) despite the fact that I was told to go home and use Garmin Express to update my Dezl.
I suspect that the problem is associated with nearby clusters of favourites and or POIs as my freezes would happen in those circumstances.
