Question about Garmin Forerunner 405 Handheld GPS Receiver
I did my initial set up and it picked up a signal to set the time but when I go to training and hit start it shows GPS Off.
How do I get it on and off?
I too was frustrated because of this. I played with the watch until I found the solution. Hope this helps!
For some reason I needed to be in the training mode to do this.
From the Time/Date mode, do the following:
1.) Press the start/stop button (upper metal button) to get out of Time/Date mode
2.) Press the Training side of the bezzle. You will see a workout display.
3.) Touch the GPS side of the bezzle until "to location" shows up
4.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to display a menu (may have to do this a couple of times, eventually when you release the button the menu does show up)
5.) Slide downward through the menu options until you find GPS
6.) Click the start/stop button (upper metal button) to toggle the gps on or off
7.) Press the lap/reset button (lower metal button) to exit the menu (goes to the "to a location" screen)
8.) Press and hold the Training side of the bezzle to return to your training screen

Using the bezel push at 'GPS' until screen changes then select GPS by rubbing round bezel. GPS I guess will be showing that it is 'off'. Tap bezel at 'GPS' and display should change to 'GPS on'. I turn GPS off and on for every training session as apparently always leaving on drains battery power more quickly.
