You have to (re)install garmin gstart software on the computer. The driver is installed together with the application.

If it appears as new hardware this is because the driver is not installed.

Check also if gstart is started before connecting device.

Can i order a new LCD for a garmin edge 305 and mount it myself?


Difficult to open it. If you do, warranty is over. There is a web site explaining how to open device :

Garmin Edge 305 completely dead, any ideas why? It worked yesterday.


I found that switching the device on and/or off while connected to the computer can leave the screen blank, and won't give any sign of life when the ON/OFF button is pressed. In reality the device is on and the batteries will drain. Try a RESET in that case by pressing ON/OFF and MODE buttons, and briefly pressing the LAP button.

Normally with Garmin sat-navs you have to switch the on/off button off and hold for around 8 seconds to reset the device

I have an edge 305 and use it mountain biking. O rough trails it shuts down. I think it's a loose conection inside the unit. When I stop it will turn right back on.


It is a connection problem inside the device. If it is under warranty you should send back to garmin, otherwise you can apply trick as described at following site :

Ive not had my garmin 305 long, it will not charge or turn on.


This might just need a reset. To reset the Forerunner or Edge 205/305:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Press and hold the mode and reset (lap) buttons together for 10 seconds
  3. Release and wait for 3 seconds
  4. There should be some indication of battery charging (either Finished or In Process)
  5. Power the device on while keeping it connected to the computer
In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest software version available by downloading and running the WebUpdater program. To update the software, please use the following link:

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.

Garmin 305 is off and wont come back on.


You have to soft reset it first, and if not solving, then try hard reset.

Soft reset : hold lap/reset with mode key for some seconds
Hard reset : hols start and mode, then pulse on lap/reset.

after soft reset hold on/off for up to ten seconds before it starts.
after hard reset all data are lost

Edge 305 turns off at every little bump in the road?


The above link no longer works.
But this one does (for now): http://blog.mtbguru.com/2008/11/06/surgery-on-the-garmin-edge-305/

I made this surgery and it now works great.
