Garmin Forerunner 305. Problem receiving activities and courses

When uploading from my Garmin Forerunner 3o2, I nearly always have to synchronise a number of times in order to get the message "...successfully received from your device". I usually get "Problem receiving activities and courses".

    Same problem. No solution yet ?

    Same thing happens to me. Plug in 305 to computer and it starts the synch procedures then finishes with "your workout data was successfully received from your fitness device. There was a problem receiving the activities and courses"
    Often (more often that not) I have to reattach the device (ie unplug and plug in again) a few times to actually receive the workout data. The problem receiving the activities and courses happens every time.

This turned out to be corrupt data on my machine. I opened the Garmin traing center, backed up all the courses then deleted them inside the Training centre. I then received from device and all was okay.

Here's what solved the problem for me: I previously had the Garmin cradle connected to a 4-port USB hub (splitter). When I re-connected the Garmin directly to the computer, the downloads worked fine.

I received the same error for a first time today. My last workout (3 hours 24 minutes recorded at 1 second intervals) would not transfer to the training center but i could see it in the history in my 305 unit.

Updated the Garmin Training center software, rebooted, recoonected - no luck.

Called Garmin, spend 40 minutes waiting, then a lady walked me trhu updating the software on the GPS unit to the latest version. Still no luck following her directions after the update. However, quitting the Training Center, turn off the 305, then put it back in the cradle (while still off), and it synced just fine as it has always done before. I guess in my case, updating the unit software helped, even though I had only once verison behind the current...

Anyway, this is what did it for me:

(1) Update the Training Center (your PC software) to the latest version.
(2) Update your unit's software to the latest version.
(3) Quit everything you have running, turn off the 305, take it out of the cradle, re-connect, run Training Center if not running automatially, and transfer your date from the File menu...

Before doing all that, remember to back-up your data from the Training Center, just in case. File/Backup...

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

Screen comes up with updating bluetooth firmware & stays at 45%.


Your unit if locatiing a cell phone close by, could be yours or a friends in the car, on standing near you.

I would disable Bluetooth first, to do that go to Tools...Settings.... Bluetooth.... under Bluetooth disable then re-do your Bluetooth connection

Tools....Settings... Bluetooth .. under Connection you can remove the connection there also

If you don't have a Bluetooth connection you want to use just disable it

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
