Garmin 405 pair to wrong HRM

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?

thanks!

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)

Broken Band


You can get it from Garmin - it comes with the little tool to pull back the spring-loaded pins - you don't need to pull those Torx screws.

I just replaced my band after a year of use. I'm in Canada so I had to order mine from a Canadian on-line retailer. (gpscity.ca) - they also had the new HRM strap - much more comfortable

Downloaded and installed Bluetooth firmware update - Won't Pair


I recommend rerunning the webupdate software available below, which was updated March 30, 2010. Run through the update steps again.

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.
After successful webupdating, a hard reset is often helpful at this time, too.

I hope that helps.

Garmin 305 Edge and GSC 10 not receiving one another


Solution copied from Garmin



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.

The address books may not be compatible with each other regardless of pairing or not. Best bet is to check on garmin.com in the support section. If it isn't they you can use the dial up on the GPS as well as any other enhanced features that require bluetooth services.

Bluetooth


GB,

The phone information isn't stored in your Nuvi. Each time it pairs with your phone the call, phonebook and other information is retrieved by the GPS.

To manage your phone activity you have to do it within the cell phone itself. Clear your messages and the next time you pair with the Nuvi you'll notice everything is gone.

Cheers

MY Garmin 405 wont download data. It make the connection and gets to the tarnsfer point then "transfer failed. I've one route downloaded last week but none since. I tried: resetting both...


I got the same issue and it was because of a software update to ANT+ agent being not compatible with the 405.
here is what I got from Garmin Support.
This solved my problem:
There is currently an issue that has been identified with the latest
version of the ANT agent where it will not transfer data to the computer
from a 405cx. To resolve this please follow these steps
1. If the device has paired it will need to be removed. Right Click on
the ANT agent, select Device Settings then click Remove Device.
2. Right Click the ANT agent and select Exit to close the ANT agent
3. Go to the Control Panel, select Add / Remove Programs and uninstall
the ANT agent.
4. Reboot the computer
5. Download the previous version of the ANT agent from http://www8.garmin.com/software/GarminANTAgent_221.exe
Run this file once it has downloaded
7. Turn on the pairing on the watch ? to do this go to Menu > Settings
> ANT+ > Computer > Pairing (on).
8. Enable pairing on the computer - right click on the ANT agent icon
and select Pair With New Devices > Enabled (this may already be enabled)
The Forerunner and computer should now pair, please be aware that it can
take several minutes for the computer to find the watch.
