I bought a Forerunner 50 with HRM and Footpod. Initially the footpod wouldn't work, but HRM would. So changed the battery and footpod is fine. However, HRM now won't work. Just replaced the battery in that as well, but still won't work. Have tried manually pairing it as per the manual, but again no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?


I had a similar problem. First my hrm worked and the footpod did not. Then I tried to pair manually (for the umpeenth time) when the hrm was too far away, and I lost that pairing, and it still didn't find my footpod. Then I wet the hrm sensors and tried pairing again and then it picked it up. Finally, I switched batteries in the hrm and footpod and then it picked up the footpod. Now I'm headed to the store to stock up on batteries. Kinda upsetting that I have to buy batteries when I just got the thing, but probably costs less than the postage for sending it back!

Garmin 405 pair to wrong HRM


I Have had the same problem couple of times (and forgotten each time how I solved it). I figured it out just now and this is what I did.

1) turn on unit and put on heart monitor (make sure battery is good and wet heart strap)
2) using the mode button navigate the menus to: Settings: General: Accessories: Heart Rate Monitor
3) Once in the Heart Rate Monitor option make sure "Yes" is selected and then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Restart Scan" . Press the enter button to rescan for your heart monitor. (I had to rescan twice)
Go back to the main monitor screen to see if you are recieving heart rate signals.

I am not sure why a manual rescan needs to be done every time but it would be nice if Garmin fixed this issues in a unit software update (my unit has software version 2.80)

Garmin Forerunner 305


Make sure the small prong under the battery is bent out a bit, sounds like an intermittened connection problem.
