Garmin 405 won't go into power-save mode

Got a new Garmin Forerunner 405 - works ok so far, but it doesn't seem to automatically go into 'power-save'mode so I'm constantly having to leave it on charge. I have checked to see that the timer is off when I come out of training mode - not sure what else I should be looking for....any suggestions gratefully received

My Garmin Forerunner 405 is completely locked up.

In regards to the locked up Garmin: Press and hold BOTH side buttons at the same time until the unit goes blank. Once released, it should be reset...... This should not remove any history or settings.

GPS problems wit a Garmin Forerunner 405

The instructions say touch and hold GPS and to go outside away from tall buildings and to remain stationary for several minutes. Not really sure what their definition of several minutes is guess thats their way of saying "sit still for as long as it takes." If that doesnt work I would get in touch with Garmin. 1-800-800-1020

Garmin Forerunner 405 always shows wrong time/date

Turn on the GPS. The forerunner will automatically sync time and date. Make sure the DST is switched to auto. I had the same problem and researched for the answer....which led me here. Turning on my GPS sync'd time and date for me. I hope this helps

How do I get the Garmin Forerunner 405 into powersave mode?

It should go into power save mode on its own after a period of inactivity. Make sure your timer is stopped and your workout has been reset. If the timer is running, it senses activity and stays in normal operating mode.

I just solved another problem where a 405 would go into power save mode but would not stay there. After a minute, it would come out and go back to normal mode and quickly drain the battery as it went back and forth between the two. I installed a software update to get version 2.30 (mine came with 2.10) and that appears to have fixed the problem.

Go to Settings, System, About and check which version of the software you have.
