Question about GPS
The first time I used my Garmin 405, I didn't use the HRM strap. It paired itself to a running partners HRM strap (I can see the HR data) and know I cannot get my 405 to recognize my HRM strap. Is the 405 mated to the other HRM strap indefinitely? or is there a way to make the 405 find the new HRM strap?
I Have had the same problem couple of times (and forgotten each time
how I solved it). I figured it out just now and this is what I did.
1) turn on unit and put on heart monitor (make sure battery is good and wet heart strap)
2) using the mode button navigate the menus to: Settings: General: Accessories: Heart Rate Monitor
3) Once in the Heart Rate Monitor option make sure "Yes" is selected and then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Restart Scan" . Press the enter button to rescan for your heart monitor. (I had to rescan twice)
Go back to the main monitor screen to see if you are recieving heart rate signals.
I am not sure why a manual rescan needs to be done every time but it would be nice if Garmin fixed this issues in a unit software update (my unit has software version 2.80)
