Question about Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver

Training Center won't save data

I can transfer the data from the wrist unit to the Training Center but when I close the training center and re-open it the new information has not been saved. Any suggestions? I have backed-up the information and then re-installed the Training Center but it still isn't working? It was fine until a month ago when we re-installed everything on the whole computer.

    Have same problem with Garmin Edge 305. Seems to me like Training Center software, which is a pretty unimpressive piece of work.

Are you using the original CD?

I had something similar happen when I upgraded my Wife's software. I ended up lossing all her history. I had to do a Windows restore to regain the information.
I then backed up her data and tried again. Same thing and the back up files would not work either.
If I used the original CD that came with the unit all was fine. But as soon as I tried the new version of the training center all was lost.
I didn't try to transfer data while all this was happening. I was too scared to try as I didn't want to lose what she had on the unit it'sself. So I'm not entirely sure if this will help you or not but definitely use the original CD that came with your unit.

Uploading multiple days of runs to Garmin Training Center


Yes it will hold ALL you runs AND keep them seperate. What you need to do at the end of each run just before you turn it off hit and "hold" the Lap button (reset button). It takes a second but you should see it say reset in 3-2-1. Keep holding untill the process is finished. What this does is end your run and saves it in the watch. When you start your watch the next time it will start a new run when you hit start. By doing this it will keep everything sorted when you down load. In the software you will see one enty with a + sign beside it. The first entry you see is the total of the week. If you hit the + you will see each individual run.

Hope this helps.

How do you transfer 305 history to a new computer?


If you go into the Garmin Training center software under "File" you should see "Export". On some versions there is a Back up as well.

If you go into the Export and Export everything, Work outs, History, and Courses (all seperatly) you should be able to save these files to a USB stick. Using the USB stick you should then be able to "Import" these files to the new PC. Obviously you will need to install the Training Center onto your new PC first.

Missing training data from my Garmin 305....


Unless you created a "back up file" with the Training Center software unfortunatly you will not be able to retrieve the data.

Regular back ups will insure you do not lose information in the future.

To back up your data in the Training Center go to "File" and "Back up" I believe the early version of the Training Center did not have the Back up feature so you would then need to use the "File" Export" option.

Garmin gps60 connected to PC


You have the USB cable but what software? Have you got the MapSource CD? If not, there's a free and legal workaround. Download the free Garmin Training Center (from Garmin site), open it to check it works, close it then download the Mapsource update file, also from Garmin site. You'll now have MapSource and can uninstall Training Center. You'll need maps though - depending where you are there's some free maps otherwise get a Garmin map to make it easier to plan trips.

G'day, I have the Edge205 and cannot get to operate, fully charged battery, and will not recognise connection to computer, can you advise please as to how I can get started, thanks Ken


To fix this problem you will need to download the latest version of Training Centre from the Garmin website and also update your units software.
Update Training Centre:
  1. Close Training Centre if its open on your PC
  2. Visit http://www.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=835
  3. Click Download
  4. Click Run when prompted
  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to update Training Centre on your PC
Update the software on the device:
  1. Visit: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to Download WebUpdater
  3. Click Run when prompted
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install WebUpdater
  5. WebUpdater will run automatically once installation is complete
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to update your Edge
If the above steps do not correct the issue, then you can carry out a master reset on the unit as a last resort:
Note: The master reset will clear all user data including training history from the unit

  1. Turn off the Edge
  2. Hold down Mode + Power
  3. Select Yes when the unit asks if you want to erase all user data
  4. After resetting your Edge, leave it with a clear view of the sky for about 30 minutes without moving it to acquire a GPS fix

Garmin 305 not communicating with Training Center


I am new to the Garmin Edge 305, and started getting this problem yesterday. Indeed, yesterday it was the first time that I downloaded Courses.

I followed the Guest solution, deleted all new courses from my Garmin, and it now WORKs!!!!

Uploading my courses back again to the Garmin made the problem return back. I need some more work to identify the bad course.

Information to computer


I did have exactly the same problem.
I think what caused the unit to stop communicating with the computer was that somehow I switched to "multisport" mode.
I was cycling and somehow I switch to running.

The solution that worked for me was to download and install the "Webupdater" software from the Garmin site. This will update the firmware on your forerunner 305 (you need to be connected to the internet of course). After 5 to 7 minutes it will be done.

Then, download the latest Garmin "Training Center". This worked for me, I'm relieved now.

Computer has a problem communicating with my forerunner 205


I just got off the phone with garmin tech. She helped me solve the problem. Here are the steps.

1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00466-00

2. Download "Forerunner 205 Ver. 2.80 as of Nov 12, 2007", unzip it, and browse to the folder you unzip the files to.

3. Make sure your Forerunner is connected to your computer and turn it on. Drag file "048401000280.rgn" and drop it on "Updater.exe". A screen will pop up, select "USB" then click OK. Then wait till the process completes.

4. Go to the website on Step 1 and download "Training Center For Windows Ver. 3.3.4 as of Feb 29, 2008". Install it.

5. Run Training Center. At this point, I am able to send/receive data to my Forerunner.

Hope this helps!
