I had the exact same problem and thought my beloved forerunner 305 had finally died. Try pressing the lap and mode keys simultaneously, and then power on. That may do a "soft reset." Worked for me.

Garmin Forerunner 305 won't turn on and won't charge. Is there a fix or is this it for the device?


Look at

You can soft reset or hard reset the device. Hard reset deletes all data.

I "over charged" my Garmin one time and it wouldn't turn on. There is a way to reset it so it works, but right off hand I can't remember how to do it. I have an email in to tech support. Let you kmow what I hear.

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:

My Garmin 305 has stopped working. It is 1 1/2


If it won't start, try connecting it to your computer and see if you can get a firmware update to turn it on. Otherwise I would send it into garmin since there aren't replaceable parts for consumers.

Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle


Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

I am charging the Garmin Edge 305 for 24 hrs or for at least over night, yet the Edge 305 will show 2 to 3 bars of charges and will last maximum 1 hour of riding time. What to do?

If not working, then attempt Soft reset :

Start the device then by long press on start. DEvice should start and charge then

I have the forerunner 305 - it is not taking a charge and won't turn on??? I have only used it 4 or 5 times


Plug in the garmin to the wall.
Hold down the reset and mode buttons for 3 seconds.
Try to turn it on or look for the "charing in process" words.
