When you want to give a hard reset you have to press the mode button en the on/off button, after a few seconds you get a question if you want to delete some things.

To hard reset the unit turn the unit off, hold down the mode button and turn the unit on. When the unit asks if you want to erase all user data, select yes. After resetting the unit, leave it with a clear view of the sky for about 30 minutes to acquire the satellite almanac

Used my garmin edge 305 today on the ride, it worked fine, powered off after the ride. Got home turned on to review my stats and then powered off and went to upload and wouldn't upload, so tried to turn it...


Edge 205 or 305 often crash, then impossible to power on again.

Here is the way to reset the Garmin edge :

Soft reset : hold mode and lap/reset buttons for 10 seconds
Hard reset : device should be powered down, hold start and mode buttons for 3 seconds then pulse press the lap/reset button.

After soft reset, you need to hold start button for up to 10 secs before it starts.

After hard reset, you will loose all your data, including profiles.

Garmin Edge 705 Frozen


Only hard reset cleans up memory, when corrupted.

Hold Mode and Start buttons for 10 seconds (device off). Then without releasing pulse press lap/reset button, you'll get a screen for confirmation, all data lost, including user data and routes.

Cadence does not register on edge 705


This is probably a pairing problem. Device and cadence should be paired. Pairing is often lost when changing battery.

Pairing the Edge 305 and sensors
Once you have installed the Garmin Edge 305 and the cadence sensor they need to be paired. As they communicate wirelessly with each other the Edge needs to connect to each sensor before it can receive input from it.

The initial pairing needs to be done away from other wireless systems this allows the Edge to pick up the sensors it is supposed to be monitoring. This is a little like black magic, but it seems to work quite easily.

The cadence sensor has a small press contact which puts the sensor into pairing mode. The HRM just seemed to connect by itself.

Subsequent pairing is much faster as the Edge 305 seems to remember which sensors it is paired with. If you have problems or need to change one of the sensors then you can use a setup feature to either turn the sensor off or to re-pair it.

Cant delete gpx files from 705 edge memory. done all usuall stuff on pc, even tried deleting gpx folder but routes still appear in saved rides when unit re-powered up. any ideas anyone?


Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)

Will the garmin edge 705 provide/ be able to produce a power watt measure during outdoor rides and what do i need to purchase to be able to get this information?


The 705 comes in multiple versions from basic that will give you heart rate to a team garmin version that has the cadence, speed, calories, etc. As for power meters the 705 is 3rd party compatible to show you watt measurements.
The following third-party ANT+Sport-enabled power meters are compatible with the Edge 705:
  • iBike
  • PowerTap
  • Quark
  • SRM
