What to do if you get the 805 error code in Mario Kart Tour

As mentioned above, Mario Kart Tour’s 805 error code can be followed by any combination of four numbers. It may sound a bit cliché, but the first thing you should do is fully back out of the game and restart it. Make sure you are fully shutting down the app by opening your active apps and exiting out of the app or force stopping it in app info. While you are at it, you may as well try restarting your device and check for any updates for the game.
