    I know something needs to be reset in it, but I jus don't remember which buttons to push. This procedure makes the Forerunner restart and then the hour/date can be adjusted again. That's all I know for now.

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

page 28 of your owners manual indicates it sets itself from a satellite signal , however if you touch and hold menu / settings / time , you have option to set time zone and daylight savings is applicable , that should fix ya up .

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.

You have to go under Menu, then scroll to Settings, then scroll to System, then scroll to Language. Then you can scroll through the list of supported languages until you find the one that suits you.

Screen freezes and display faints

Hopefully the usb adapter just confused the battery. Did you use it this time or a regular plug? Its always best to fully discharge a battery and fully recharge it for the next use. They will lose life and malfunction otherwise. Glad you've had some luck, hopefully it will work just fine now.

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

Can't get my GPS to turn on with the Garmin 405

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
