Question about Garmin Forerunner 405 Handheld GPS Receiver
How can I RESET it.
SOURCE: Garmin is stuck at loading maps
I had a 200 W Nuvi with the same problem. Luckily it happened with the first 3 months, so i could return it to Garmin under warranty for a free replacement

SOURCE: reset 255 loader loading frozen
Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

SOURCE: Updated firm ware on 405
Make sure you have the latest ANT version.
Remove the pending firmwire program that wants to be transfered to the forerunner. (right-click + select delete)
Reset the watch (hold both buttons for 6 seconds, lift upper button, hold lower botton for another 3 seconds)
Then start all over again.
This fixed the problem for me.

call garmin support 800 800 1020
they will talk you through deleting the update file GUPDATE.GCD
unit should work then (but back on original software version)
To update software:
if you used i.e. to access garmin now try firefox and if you used garmin webupdater prgm (avbl @ garmin.com) now use mygarmin prgm (it's in later model garmin gps units and will ask to be installed when you plug usb cable to gps.
